I'm absolutely loving the SM, but in the last week it has been cutting out.

The context as follows:
-Starts first time and idles beautifully
-When cold seems to not cut out
-Once engine is hot it starts to cut out (heavy jerking) on constant or low throttle
-If I open full throttle it pulls fine and splutter goes away
-If very hot it may even miss a beat at idle
-Twice on starting hot it misses, and then a loud metal to metal 'slap' comes from the left hand side of motor

I'm anxious to resolve in case I'm damaging something else.

Any ideas?Super

Side stand switch for the first few, and maybe the recall hasnt been done on the starter for the last item ?

Thanks gents. It is stock standard. Show stands switch seems to be fine, as it 'misfires' at constant throttle, not when doing a wheelie or bad road surface

Cheers, I'm heading to the dealer tmrw, so I trust they'll have good mechanic who knows about typical fuel pump point issues.
