Weird Problem, Need Advice and Help
Ok so i started a thread a while back, about tires, i got some great advice on tires, and went with the Kenda Kruz and oversize front/rear.
I just got the tires back on the bike and now i have a weird problem.
The bike wants to die.
I still have it up on the stand, i put it in 1st gear, holding the clutch in, and the rear tire spins!!! Should it spin like that in 1st with the clutch in??
Then as soon as i give her gas and start to release the clutch, its like the rpms go up and then down and she dies!!
I don't know whats up?? I didn't mess with the engine, clutch, or any of that.
I took the main drive shaft off to check on my splines, cuz i did the spline lube like 2 months ago.
And I must say, putting on an oversize rear tire wasn't easy. It really wouldnt fit between the right swingarm point and the driveshaft area. So i had to remove the driveshaft and then get the tire up pas toward the mid of the rim area and then put the driveshaft back on, then manuever the tire/rim into place.
Help me! Lol. I can't wait to get on the road with my new tires.
