In first gear at high revs my bike just sounds wron. And dont pick up speed properly.unless i jiggle the throttle then power valve kicks in problem is i have to move throttle back and forward alot. Is this a air filter problem or something els other than that bike is fine and ok in other gears

Thats called hitting the limiter, change up a gear, should sort the problem ;)


Na, I dunno. What rev range is high for you? What bike? Do you go over the red line?

Dont go anywhere near red line about half my clock.like i said if i jiggle throttle is opens up and let me go to higher rev its like its not getting enough fuel. Ive only got a suzuki rg f

Ive just had the tank and carb cleaned also new spark plug. So i aint got a clue

 

You've checked the air filter, throttle & choke cables for free play? I had a "problem" where the bike was sluggish below about 35k reves. Looked at the filter and you could have grown 'taters in it. Swapped it out and hey presto, new bike...


I guess she was getting just enough air to idle, but until the engine hit a certain rev point and sucked hard enough, she struggled.
