Default Re: Power issues

Make sure you tighten everything. If you're getting leaks near the plug and the exhaust, you're losing pressure/compression. That'll make any motor seem gutless.

You said it's a used motor? What fuel mix are you running? If it's already been broken in by someone else you would get less power running at break-in mix levels.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
