Default Re: Motor running faithfully now, but.......

Basically, it's been running this way since the first time I fired it up. I live only 15 minutes from the beach, so I'm wondering if maybe the factory setting isn't adequate for my altitude.


The bike doesn't buck, but I do feel some hesitation when I'm at WOT, which kinda tells me that it wants to go faster but something is holding it back. It's almost as if the spark is missing ever so slightly. The only other way I could describe it is that when I notice it's running rough, it sounds similar to the way a lawnmower sounds, but not as loud. When it does smooth out near the top end (for the short period of time it does...) it sounds like a well tuned 2 stroke dirtbike.
I live in a constant state of organized chaos
