For starters I post a while back about a sluggish low end on my bike. Well lately the bike has been running worse and sounding horrible. I take it to a guy to get my new chain and sprocket kit on and he calls me later that day to tell me it is ready.

Well then he says when you drove up your bike sounded bad so I checked it out and......

"You were runningon three cylinders I put in a new plug, and the vacuum line to the fuel valve was off it is a whole new bike now."

Boy was he not kidding! All the problems I was having with off idle power are gone, suspect vacuum line was off from day I got the bike Jan 3. Three cylinders that explains the piss poor idle etc. for the last week and a half. Also the bike was running cold like 140ish on mid 50 degree nights. Now temp is normal.

Here I was suspecting dirty carbs cuz of all the talk of checking the tank for rust etc. and I do have a small amount of sediment in the tank.

Anyway thanks to John and everyone for your tips and advice. Bike is running great
New AFAM sprockets +2 in the rear and DID 520 chain
damn what a rush!

If you were riding on 3 cylinders for a while, I assume that the one cylinder that was not working was still getting fuel, I wounder where all that un-burned fuel went
you might want to do an oil change
