I recently had a mechanic disassemble, synch and clean my carbs, among a whole bunch of other things ( 1+ tooth front sprocket!!!) and when I picked up the bike, it had this new symptom that it had never had before. Under throttle, let's say from 8%-12% I get a constant, consisten hesitation that won't let the motor rev out of it, it will stay stuck at that specific RPM point in which I held the throttle at that point. It's not RPM specific, but throttle input specific.
He said the carbs were VERY dirty ( blame the PO
The motorcycle currently has K&N air filter, Harley Dyna mufflers with the center thing punched out, new NGK spark plugs, and that's about it. The miss was before AND after the new plugs. He said the carbs have stock jets, and that the adjustment screw. . . the one that has a cover that you need to break in order to access it? The one you guys always talk about 2 and a half turns? Forgot the name. . well, it's still untouched.
I'm thinking that the carb is running really lean or rich or something at that specific throttle input, but I know SO LITTLE about how a carb works. . . :/
This is very frustrating. Example situation;
I'm doing 55 mph, with traffic, and I accelerate just a teeny bit as traffic naturally fluctuates, and it starts sputtering, so I have to accelerate even MORE to get out of that SPUTTER ZONE, or roll of a little throttle, which is already at very little throttle input, so I have a hard time keeping a steady distance from other vehicles comfortably.
Thanks in advanced!
