Some trouble in bike land for me today. It's got this very apparent stutter when trying to accelerate hard in a higher gears like 4th and 5th
(5 speed). Whilst 1st 2nd and 3rd seem to be absolutely fine.
My friendly mechanic suggested I'd check the crabs for contaminants in the fuel like water or hard residue from the tank.
So I checked by emptying the float chambers on 2 of the carburettors. The one on the far left and the far right. The left hand one emptied quite fast, but appeared to have what looked like tiny water droplets in it. Whilst the one on the right dripped fuel at an almost asthmatic rate and quantity. It also looked like it had some hard black coal like residue in it. Perhaps some old solidified petrol that accumulated in that carb?
I recently performed a spark plug and air filter change. And it's been doing this since my last fill up. Could I have some form of petrol contamination going on? Or is my bike somehow running either supper rich or way to lean at full throttle?
Are there still things I could check with very limited tooling and experience?
My left knee hit one of those beige stones at of the road's edge.
The protector in my motorcycle trousers was literally shattered.
Lucky I'm alive and well, sort of. Considering me and the bike ended up in the high grass by the tree.
I am just sick and tired of this piece of crap bike breaking down all the time.
The sad thing is that I will probably be out of the saddle for at least half a year.
But It will give me time to safe up for a proper bike that isn't crap. In other words a bike from the year 2000 and upwards.
Sad how private sellers lie about the state of a bike.
