Oh boy, bike running trouble.
Here are the symptoms I'm having with my bike
-sporadic starting, sometimes she starts after about 2 seconds of pressing the starter button, sometimes she doesn't start at all(she used to start up immediately a couple months ago)
-sporadic loss of power, she doesn't seem to be pulling as hard as she should in first gear, but it's once you get out of first gear you really start noticing it. The other day when I noticed this I was taking her for a ride and I could barely get her to 50mph with the throttle all the way on, then at seemingly random times she could't even keep that up and the RPM's would slowly start falling.
-It has shut off while I'm riding it.
I really need some expert advice and fresh opinions on this!
I think I might have two problems, I think my ignition coils might be going bad, which would explain the sporadic starting, the dying mid-ride and some of the loss of power I think.
and I think I also might be having some problem with my carb calibrations whether it be mixture or sync or vacuum, because I just recently cleaned out my carbs and most of these problems materialized after putting them back on.
Thanks! I just need to know what to fix so I don't miss any riding this summer!
