Will hold off on the bad driving stories, I’m a slow
typist and am more interested in help with my questions.
- first the second question,
even before I actually got the bike I’ve had it mind
to get it bored out to 175-180 cc’s. Back when I drove
bikes I remember that the step up from 150 to 175 was
just a better go.
What do you say?
- the second question should actually be the first,
I’ve only had it for a few months but it certainly seems
to be losing power. At first I thought I was getting used
to driving again (been years since I drove a bike)
but now I’m convinced that it’s getting a little tired on
me. The only things that I can think I’m possibly
doing wrong is either not letting it cool down before
shutting it down for the night ie. zooming into town
and going into the garage without tooling around town
for a few minutes at a casual pace, and/or “lugging” it
up inclines and not downshifting. I’m aware that it’s
better to overrev than underrev an engine and I didn’t
think that I was. My “rule” is, if it isn’t slowing down
at a throttle setting it isn’t “lugging”, yes or no?
Thanks for any response, just want to say I've enjoyed
reading here, and gawd yes the people here do only use
traffic lights as a reference.
