New used bike, new problems
So i bought a '97 VN750 last night for 1300.
in great shape, and I met the shop owner who rebuilt it in San Marcos, TX.
After riding, I notices the throttle acts a bit weird...
It seems to rev up pretty quickly, then do nothing at all.
This makes it incredibly hard to roll out of a stop going uphill without stalling.
Additionally, the bike wouldn't go over 70 on the ride home, nor did it have ANY pickup over 45mph.
My first guess is the battery or the carbs? The previous owner said the bike had been sitting since January before he got the drive shaft replaced, and the mechanic told me i needed to replace the battery soon.
Could these issues simply be side-effects of a dying battery, or to I need to pull the tank off and have a mechanic tinker around before i take her out?
