Took my wolvy for her first trail ride past weekend. Got home and cleaned all the mud and dirt off. Went to take a spin around the neighborhood and started having issues. When you are about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle the RPMs will sudden spike way up with little difference in power to the machine. Once you shift to the next gear it will increase power/rpm consistently then same thing happens and you get a sudden RPM spike. It also seems to recreate the problem if you are low in the gear and try to punch it...High rpm with no power increase. If you shift gears and gradually increase throttle she will increase power and RPMs consistently but if you shift and are more than 1/2 throttle it will increase power and RPMs fine until you get about 1/2 to 3/4 way through the gear then you get the same RPM spike... Hope I am explaining this clearly. My truck did a similar thing once and it turned out to be a whole new tranny...hope this is a different issue. Thanks for your help guys and gals.
HeyI am working on a friends 2004 Suzuki 500 vinson. It would not run so I took the carb apart and clenaned passages and jets and soaked carb overnight. Put machine back together and it started right up and ran great for 1/2 hr then it will sputter and stall. Wait a few hrs and the same thing happens. I took the spark plug cap off cut a 1/4 inch off and re installed the cap. It has a new spark plug in the machine. I cleaned a screen in the fuel line also. It seems like the coil heating up and shorting out or not enough fuel getting to the carb although draining the carb there is plenty of fuel. Any ideas and thanks in advance.
