Hi everyone. Saturday I was riding with my buddies the whole day the bike was fine it was riding better than ever. But saturday night when we got bike my bike was acting funny. I was giving it throttle and it seemed that the engine was flooding (bogging, not real responsive) but when I gave it a little more throttle then it would take off. Yesterday I went back to my buddies house to see if was doing the same thing. And sure thing. It was.after the bike warmed up i started to rev up the engine and just nothing but exaust smoke coming out of the engine. It was idleing under 1 then i reved it up and just alot of exaust smoke was coming out. Then it started, after I reved it up, it started to idle normal around 1.5/2 but then droped down under 1. So I decided to see if i could ride the bike. So I shift it in First and start to give throttle and let up off the clutch but it sounded like it was going to die. So I had to give more throttle than normal then it would take off on me. Is the carbs a culprette???
Have you used Sea Foam additive in the gas, put some in, ride it anl let it set for a day or 2 to work.
You could try draining the boals and filling with Sea foam and letting that sit then draining that to.
