Elevation 1100 to 2500FT. Mostly in the 1000 to 1500ft range. I see the carb has a 160 in it. [picked a near new carb off Ebay dirt cheap]

Installed carb today and it runs sweet. I cant road test because its -15C with a windchill of -25C. I want to ride it soooo bad now!!!

well if the air is super cold, the bike will run nicely now. But with warmer weather, you could see some problems with the carb. I had problems with my 34mm carb, You just need to find a good medium with need size, possions and jets. Also, you can mod the airbox to increase the amount of air needed.

I got insurance on the bike today. -15C outside but just had to ride. First impressions were the bike goes like a raped ape. Tyga pipe, 34mm carb and Vforce reeds. Seat of the pants dyni tells me I got way more HP now. But on the downside the old problem reared its ugly head. The motor doesnt seem to want to pull hard frpm a cruise speed. If you wank on it hard it goes great, but if your cruising along it wont seem to get going. Its been like this since new. I might just switch all the good hardware to my spare bike and ride that one.

I think thats normal. Mines does it aswell. The power pulses build up though the gears and give you the extra power. I hope that makes sence lol

Basically it has no torque or the ability to get itself going once your at a cruise speed. Even if you gear down, it doesnt go anywhere near like it does banging thru the gears on the level.

oh right well there should be some sort of power after wacking down the gear. But its not like going straight through the gears. The peak toque is around 9k so when your hit peak power, you come down on the peak toque which gets you going again with the added powerband power and the engine power.
