hi guys and gals Tommy here again
my stealth isnt running well , now im not sure if this is a prob but may well be, my bike wont rev past 8500 ?? i know other stealth owners and there bikes will red line but in top mine just stops at 8500 any ideas ?
iv done a full service today oil filter and valves .08 inlet .015 exhaust as stated in haines for these engines , all well but ticking over is a doggie afair the revs seem to go up and down to the point of stall the trickle back up , i know it should tick over around 11 1500 but mine struggles to hold a steady tick over , it need the choke on for starting but then i flick it off i know very little about carbs so any ideas ?
plz as im getting my wick on about this bike as its not the bike peeps told me it would be or have i just to wrangle it to my will haha
o air filter was cleaned and dried last night but didnt seem to make any diff -tightened all collers to carb from air to head still runs like a bag of spanners.
Have you tried changing your fuel? It might be a fuel issue , in some petrol stations you can really pick up shit fuel… I’ve done it mysqlf, you may need the carb cleaning out aswell?
cheers super but all that was done iv had that a few times with a cbr i had so i know were to get my juice thats fresh and doesnt stand to collect water and shit ,having another look at it today will go over everything again see if iv missed any thing and most likely take carb off to have a shifty at that .well keep you updated
Sounds like the a clogged jet, carb needs removing and cleaning. Its quite easy. Just make sure you remove all the rubber gaskets before using carb cleaner, and take pictures of where the various jets go as you dismantle Once done I think you’ll find it will run easily.
