  3. engine is "drowning" on full throttle

    Transalp
    I have a new problem now :/ When I twist the throttle quickly, fully (on low rev) the engine is "drowning" (or struggling, dont know how to describe, basicly loses power) instead of rev up immediately as it used too. If I twist the throttle slower everything is fine, no power loss. Is this the...

    Africa Twin
    Hello all. I am having a bit of trouble with my RD07A and would welcome any advice / opinions. It all started four weeks ago when I took my AT into a mechanic to fit a new set of chain and sprockets. As an afterthought I asked them to balance the carbs. I picked her up on the friday and she...

    Right time to scupper the rumours ( told mudwiz I wouldn’t write anything so sorry chris feel compelled) that seem to have been started by someone that Mudwiz and I were towed in to the hotel on the last stage of the End to End. We were in fact travelling under our own steam, though well under...
  10. Random bits and bobs going odd.

    Africa Twin
    Ok so i have no idea if these are interrelated, but i have a horrible feeling they probably are. Start bike -no problem, warm her up off i go. I have little to no power in first gear, even if i leave her to warm-up for 5mins, still no oomph. She goes like, just not great. 2nd - 5th no problem...
