Km94

Evening.

Has anyone experienced running problems with the km94 rc? It will run two days no problems 4+ hours a day, then it's a new day runs a couple of hours and starts running really badly, switch it off for 10 minutes starts no problem and runs good then on.

ive had a geniune carb fitted, still doing it and my dealer thinks it could be the coil, but if it were the coil I thought it would be getting worse and worse, but this is a couple of weeks now and still the same.

Any ideas or help appreciated.

Thanks.

    I have to have 2 new carbs fitted  by the dealer on mine they are made of cheese, mine is not working again and I'm not throwing anymore money at it. It's only 18 months old. 

    • New carb 10 days ago. So I'm thinking if I spend the money on the coil and it ain't that, I've got a machine with new parts on it that doesn't do the job.

    Has the machine had a new spark plug fitted? A small piece of carbon rattling round in the spark plug 'nose' gives exactly the syptoms you describe - had it twice this week myself oddly as it hasn't happened for a good while!

    • New plug also fitted as well. Thanks

  • Coils can have an intermittent problem......I'd buy a new coil.... about £50.  Open the box carefully so if it doesn't do the trick, you can resell it on Ebay as "new" without losing much money.  Funnily enough, I picked up a replacement carb for my FS94 a few weeks ago....... £9 including postage from China............. works fine though took 4 weeks to arrive. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any cheap Chinese coils for the KM94 that I can see.
