Bogging while cruising
After perusing the forum for the past month or two, I did some research, bought the parts and modified a couple things all at once on the bike. First the R/R relocate and replace. Then I coastered it and completely removed the emissions component/hoses. Last, I did the ear shave, which meant re-jetting the carb. Currently running 142's/42's and 2 shims on the needle.
It's running and rideable again now, and I definitely notice a difference when it's WOT. it's got decent power at low rpms too, but when I'm doing 3-5k RPM the bike will bog down some, and i can feel it "pulling" intermittently. I've been experimenting with the Air mixture screws, too far in makes it worse. Right now they're like 3 turns or more out, almost to the point of falling out; and I'm still getting the bog.
I'm afraid to go out anymore, and am running out of options. Ideas?
