hello all

I went to take my baby out for a ride today to get away from the g20 crap going on in the downtown core. As I pulled away from my drivway I had over rev the bike as it would drop rpm's and want to bog out. The bike felt like it had no power at all. it was like anything under 6000 rpm felt like riding through wet concrete. Not too long ago I put in a new battery, new plugs, oil. the bike has just over 10 000 km's on it. After a while and a few km's it was okay.....strange. :huh:

RE: no power to the point of stalling/ fairing crack

You mean the bike didn't scream like a monster when it was cold? Sounds like it was cold!

Getting the carbies right, and using the choke (or not, they're all different) can help, but I've never seen a cibby that behaved itself immediately when started on a cold day... Mine was a slut until it started warming up, then went great guns.

Maybe let it warm up longer. That's all I can suggest from the information given.

i know its bad, but if im in a rush to go somewhere and dont have time to warm it up, i adjust the idle and pull the choke in so its sitting at around 8000rpm for about 30 seconds. then take off and its alright.

Dude... that's really bad.

You're better off just riding the thing cold and being gentle.

Was it misfiring at all? If it is then start looking at fueling and driveline stuff, if its misfiring then start looking at the sparkplugs/cdi and fueling. It may well be something as simple as a clogged filter or kinked hose.
