just picked it up. previous owner said it has a 'flat spot' or hesitation around 5000. he also said he put it on a gas analyzer & it was lean around there, hence the sputter.
after a couple rides myself it seems to be more between 6000-6500.
i just installed a Dobeck Techlusion TFI unit & set it to the recommended settings as well as played with it a little & it only got worse, not better. it crisped up my throttle response but there is still that hesitation between 6000-6500.
bike has K&N air filters & a full Jardine system on it (2 into 1).
before i start ripping into it what would a seasoned RC51 owner/rider suggest?
i dont have cash to throw at it wildly & will most likely be doing all the work myself. i was going to start simple with tank fuel filter & go from there. once the tank is off i can check air filters & look for any vacuum leaks, loose wires, etc. it pulls as hard as hell from 7000-redline & rides as smooth as any 1000cc V-twin superbike could from idle to roughly 6000.
i'm frustrated & wont go back to the previous owner.....i still think i got a good deal at $3000.
suggestions will be much appreciated
