95 VMAX engine forcing.

Hey guys, someone I know bought a 95 VMAX 2 cylinder 500cc liquid cooled and the thing cant even go up a mountain without struggling. I don`t know what the problem is but I would think it has to do with the engine or fuel. He says he got the carburator, cylinders and pistons redone not too long ago but it still does the same thing. Any ideas ?

I'm not sure, its dark right now so I won't be touching it till tomorrow. All I know is when I had nothing to pull and I was on flat grounds, the engine would be fine after holding the gas all the way down. As soon as I have to go uphill or haul something it has a really hard time. The engine is very smoky but no signs of overheating.

sounds like its running rich. depending on how long its been since the carbs were cleaned, that would be a good place to start. doesnt take but a few weeks for bad gas to sour the carbs.

there is also the possibility of the secondary not back shifting, especially if the smoke your seeing smells like burning rubber.

as always, the more and accurate the info, the better.

I noticed one of the two wires on the throttle is loose. I think it might be the air intake. Which means it would be rolling rich and that would make sense. Going to check it soon and post an update. Does anyone know if its supposed to be like that though?
