    I just purchased a 2005 R* with 13k miles and I noticed a little bit of sputtering from carburetor at idle. Any ideas

    need a better description of what it is doing and when it is doing it. Cold? when taking off from a stop? when rolling on the throttle at speed?

        Just sitting there at idle. I did put some Royal Purple fuel treatment.

            Isn’t the 2005 the most susceptible to sticky valve syndrome? Lightly hold a tissue paper close to each individual exhaust and see if it occasionally gets sucked into the pipe. If so, SVS may be your issue.

                  turn the idle up. many folks like the low idle but it is not good for a R*...
                  not all those who wander are lost......

                    Set the idle at 900 RPM.
