R1200GS local help needed, mechanical issues on my DD

Is someone local and familiar with this bike to lend me a hand?

R1200GS, 2005
I live in Downey, 90242

I adjusted valves last night and added a Rox Riser.

Test rode this morning and bike stumbles significantly under throttle; at idle is fine; half tank gas, rode fine yesterday, before two mechanical items.

I'm going to pull valve covers to see if I made a mistake.

If valves are correct, is someone near by that can take a look?

It's Sunday 10 AM right now, bike needs to be right for commute tomorrow.

Thanks!!

PS My # is: 562.895.8871, Carl

Figured it out ... the three-wire plug/fitting that plugs into the upper ignition coil broke.

Does someone in SoCal have one laying around?

Easy to find a mechanic during the week ... Sunday, not so much ... it'll go to Valdi tomorrow.

That's why I said Lior. He has been known to go out of they way to help a guy out.
