There's an unplug stick coil, see if it runs worse, if it did that coil was fine - procedure you can try when you experience the bad running. Very (un)scientific.
Thinking being that if a coil isn't working, and you disconnect it, it shouldn't have an impact on the idle whereas a working one being disconnected should impact. I think I even took mine for a ride with all each coil as well as both the lower ones disconnected.
I see what you're saying - mine just seems to run OK and then when I think it's OK something else goes wrong. After speaking to Hilltop and doing as he advised and then changing the upper coil pack and cleaning all connectors it seemed to be fine - best idle I'd ever had, plus using the removed coil pack on my BCR and having that run shite, then after the engine warmed up it was the worst it had ever been. At the moment I just don't have the time to keep plugging and un plugging connections. I absolutely love the bike when it runs somewhere near normal but this is really doing my head in
