Ok, I need help on my plan here. I looked at the air filters, but everything looked alright on those I think.
I haven't checked the spark plugs because I need to go get the proper socket size to take them out. They're cheap enough I think I'm just going to replace them and get it over with. They haven't been replaced since I bought the bike about 4 months ago. I'm also thinking I'm going to bypass the CA emissions stuff. I have two tubes coming out of the gas tank, blue (left) and red (right). The blue one is rotted and falling apart, the red one looks fine. According to the manual I have, (which is really just a part manual) both tubes go to the CA Emissions. So if I want to bypass that I need to replace both tubes and run them to the bottom of the bike correct?
I also dumped a can of SeaFoam in the tank and have let it run for a while. The problem with the low power seems to be very random, although it is the majority of the time. Occasionally, for no reason I can see, I'll get full power.
If all of this doesn't work I think I'm going to have to take it in to my local shop. My wife leaves with the car on monday for a week long trip out of state, and the bike is my only ride. :S
