When was the last complete tune up to include a complete carb service, air cleaner, plugs, valve check?.. is the bike fully stock?
The bike is fully stock. I just picked it up used a few weeks ago. Dealership indicated that they did a compression check and it checked out fine. Other than that, I can't be sure. According to the service log that I got with the bike, it looked like it was kept up fairly well. That said, the last service noted was at 12k miles... that was about 7 years ago.
I can't believe that shop would sell a bike that was last serviced then, without a recent service. Because of the unknowns, it can only be said right now that you need a complete tune up including a complete carb service, only then, when you know the bike is supposed to run right could you star to diagnose a running issue. Your carbs need cleaned at least once a year. If after a complete tune up you are still having the issues, by all means let me know & we'll diagnose it until it is fixed.
Thanks. I'll take it in to get it serviced.
