Holding back???
« on: 02 May 2017, 09:05:41 PM »
Evening all!!


Can anyone help....

My bike feels like its holding back a little. It still accelerates easily and is like a rocket at high revs but I just get a holding back feeling at slower speeds?? 

Can anyone suggest anything short of taking carbs off etc...

The choke slider did get stuck but I've freed this off and still no change.

Thanks in advance !

Andy

Check the EXUP to see if its working and set correctly

Plus 1 for the exup, mine stuck opens few years back and the bike was not exactly gutless but noticeably slower than before until over 5000rpm or so.
It's easy to check: take the cover off (carefully incase the bolts are rusted in.....) Turn ign on pulley should rotate to its initial position, then fire up bike, pulley should rotate as you rev bike. Normally fully open by 7k.
Loads of exup info on Pat's site (cartestsoftware)


Cheers
