Default Re: have REAL power loss now!

engine starts easy
warms up great
has no low end power (or high end if I hit a hill)
new plug turned black after one day (could I be too heavy on the oil?)
e-clip is on the second level from the top (stock)

Thanks for asking, Pablo. I would really appreciate anything you could do to help this poor carburetor get some guts in it. It has about half the power that my last one had.

Let's get to the meat of the issue.

Engine starts easy?
Engine warms up nominally?
Bike has no low end power?
You wick it on and what happens?
Bike has no top end power?

Old Plug was black? After how long?

Your needle e-clip is where?

My guess right now is that you are running too rich, but that's just a guess. Need more info.
