  • No power!

    Bike is together. No fuel leaks finally, idles perfect, seems to be running great except - I'm not getting the right power when running under load. Feels like I'm trying to accelerate in a higher gear - which I'm not...input? Thanks again!

    Weak clutch... How many miles on bike and what modifications?

      Maybe 2k (or so) on a Barnett clutch. +/- 56k on bike. No major mods - no records from PO (Angel Prospect).
      A while ago (2k or so miles)
      : Barnett clutch, replacement oil gear, tranny recall;
      Recent: ported intake, new carb gaskets, float, needle, grips & grip throttle assembly.
      Counted off the gears up and down during the test ride just to be sure I wasn't shifting wrong (hardly likely, but ya gotta check ). Seemed like things started off fine on the test ride today, but then it just bogged down - getting 70 mph was all I could do really. This bike was pretty darn quick before (I'm no racer, but...).

        When you say the bike is back together and no fuel leaks, remind us what you did to the bike. What did you do to it since it last ran well?

              I installed the clutch kit as per instructions, and it worked great.

              I ported the intake as per consensus of instructions from multiple sources (here, YouTube, etc.), ensuring flush mating surfaces; I didn't shave quite as close deep inside as others I saw, even torqued to spec!

              The replacement needle and float came with a carb rebuild kit, appeared to be identical to what was there before. Jets were installed by PO, cleaned and replaced. Made no adjustment to float level, nor any other changes.

              May have mis-adjusted throttle cables when replacing the grip (Avon) assembly, not sure but throttle in neutral seems responsive. Worked great when I left the driveway anyhow. Not so great several miles from home.

                Well we have to know exactly what needle (if it stock with one spot for clip or an adjustable needle) and exactly what jets you put in. Meaning remove them and see what numbers are on them. If you replaced float you may have bent the tab inadvertently which would affect float level. Take a Pic of the float with bowl off from the sides that may help see if it is way out of whack. Sounds like may be running low on fuel?
