Poor performance at low speed
« on: January 28, 2019, 09:18:46 PM »
I have a 2002 Varadero XL1000 carburettors model
When Iím driving about 20-30 miles an hour it feels like itís missing surging at higher speeds itís not to bad  weíre do I start ?
Itís due for its anual service so Iíll be changing plugs, fuel filter, air filter,oil.
But to be honest I donít think it will cure this problem any help would be appreciated
Itís driving mad and spoiling my rides
Paul.

What RPM are you at when you're "driving about 20-30 miles a" ?
I wonder what happen if I click on this - Ooops

Try coming down 1 or 2 gears and keeping the RPM above 2,500.


Balancing the carbs would probably help but I would try keeping the RPM up first.

They don't like it that low down the rev range.

You have 9k rpm don't just use the first 2k.

2-3k works quite well for around town, but usually requires a gear drop to speed up.
