So i was able to get my 98 xlt out today and the throttle is acting crazy a little sluggish getting going the acts ok until some were between half and thee quarter throttle. If i go fill throttle it just bogs like crazy and smokes i have a new fuel pump thinking maybe not enough gas I'm lost
One problem I had on my 650 was the red kill switch on the handle bar. It was shorted out I by passed it and the problem was gone. Of course this is a safety issue but a safety tether from the motorsports store was cheaper then a new kill switch.
I cleaned the carbs and it made a huge difference. but now its kinda doggy getting up to 5000 rpms after that she rips and about every 40 miles i got to swap around the plugs because it will start dogging out all around so i will look at the plugs and put the dirtiest one in the cleanest one and then she runs crazy again after 5000 rpms.
