I gots no powa - March 18, 2010, 07:45 AM

Warmed up the bike like normal, rode 200 yards out of the neighborhood, and after I turn onto the main street I give it gas in 1st gear. Normally a good amount of power picks up at 4k rpm. But it didn't give me any more power until I got to about 6k. Shifted into second, and same thing, didn't feel like I was giving it much gas between 4k and 6k. It did it no matter how open the throttle was.

why is it bogged down?

This has happened in the past, just randomly. But it usually only happens right at the beginning of the ride and doesn't happen again.

It only happens maybe once every month or two. I thought maybe it has to do with cold mornings

Check your fuel and air filters.

I don't think it would be an air filter issue going that slow in first gear? I mean it would seem like in order for it to be something going on there you would have to be running the bike....

BUT

If it was stored who nows you could have animales or bugs inside somewhere.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

It doesn't happen every day, maybe once every month or 2

the bike wasn't stored for winter, I had been running it and riding it around every week or couple weeks. I rode it yesterday after work with no problems.

I'll have to listen close next time it happens.



thanks for all the good advice.
