We had a good few days here in Mid Michigan, so I got the 7r out. I have discovered some issues and would like to know if anyone has any idea what is causing them.
What is happening is I cant get the bike up over 65 really, its jerky, kinda sputtery, and after 2nd gear there is like 0 throttle response, even with it wide open. It doesnt climb, and almost bogs down, but idles fine and it revs fine if I just have it sitting there.
So first gear is fine, I get an occasional sputter or flat spot
second gear is the same as first except for when I get it over 45. It gets real sputtery and jerky. Its just not smooth at all.
third gear i can hold maybe at around 65. I pushed it to 75 but it barley got there and didnt stay for long.
forth and fifth gear wont even go above 50, its just so boggy.
I thought maybe it wasnt getting enough fuel so I changed the fuel filter, put a fresh tank of 93 in it with an additive.
Before I take the carbs off and clean the carbs, are there any other suggestions? I was thinking maybe a fuel pump?
any help is appreciated!
