Dropped Cylinder 440km

So I've ridden the bike 440km, running in pretty much by the book with only a few squirts to around 9k. Yesterday I was riding to work roughly 20km and it started raining. Switched it to wet mode and off I go to work. That night on my way back I've switched it back to sport and warmed the bike on idle until it the LOW from the oil temp finally starts reading a number.

As it was warming up it sounded really clunky and popping. As I pulled away it was popping and sounded like it was going to stall. Under acceleration it pulled like a 250 and as the bike got hotter and I was giving it more gas flames started to come out of exhaust from unburnt fuel. I was stationary and blipping the throttle and short flames where coming out the pipes. Look like a top fueler waiting at the lights.

I pulled over immediately, as I didn't want to damage the engine. No warnings on the dash came up. It didn't sound like there was anything mechanically wrong, feels like more of an electrical problem. But who knows will keep you updated today once I know more.

You have a 600cc thumper now.

Let us know what they find, hopefully just a loose coil cap or fouled plug like Soulrider said.

Yep all good news from the mechanics, in there words "we replaced the spark plugs, and its fine now, all part of the run in" kinda weird to be fouling plugs this early. I feel like a noob because it was such a little problem. Anyways I wasn't prepared to take any chances. I guess I'll just buy some plugs and change them myself if this happens again.
