PostSubject: Fifth and fourth gear lagging problems   Mon Aug 26, 2013 8:11 am

Hello, I have a '90 Intruder 750 and am having issues with lagging in fourth and fifth gear at high speeds; especially with wind or inclines. This feels like a jetting problem that I am not getting the correct air to fuel mixture. I am also experiencing poor gas mileage not to mention reduced top speed. Any help is appreciated.

Hmmm.... sounds like shes running too rich Jason. Take her in for a tune up. Best performance is on the lean edge. Back her up to a fence or wall and give it a rev or two... does it leave sooty marks? if so, too much fuel.

Thanks for the feedback. It does seem like it is running too rich. I have the day off Sunday and will be peaking into the situation using the comments. I will get back with you all with what I find, thanks!
