carb problem? runs crappy...somtimes
The bike is new to me with 4600 miles on it. It starts easy and runs smooth except at steady speed or even light acceleration when it has a frequent miss. Under heavy acceleration it runs without missing a beat. When at home I can hold the throttle steady at 3500-4000 rpm and have no miss.
Have added Seafoam and fresh fuel, but have only logged about 20 miles. Adjusted the carb screws yesterday.
Plugs look good I think just changed by the PO, but thy're DPR8EA-9 instead of stock DP7EA-9.
Do I need to change the plugs to stock?.
Should I give the Seafoam more time to work?
The bike had sat garaged awhile before I got it.
