Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
did you perform any maintenance or add any accessories before this started?
tell me everything you can.
there are a few things that can cause a loss of performance.
it's best to go through them in a logical order.
we should start with the electrical system. battery and charging system.
- measure the battery voltage under the following conditions:
- ignition OFF
- ignition ON
with the start button depressed
- with the engine at 2,000 rpm (fast idle).
let me know what you find.
you may have been misled.
this is not forum where we suppose what might be wrong with your bike.
this is a site where you contract to pay an expert (me) to help you diagnose and correct the problem with your bike.
your engine will need to assembled and operational to continue.
but since the carb is off, you can perform a compression test now, as it requires wide open throttle for accurate results.
contact me when that is done. we can continue then.
