two problems could they be related.
I have two issues one I thought was resolved but apparently not. My bike was acting like it was starving for fuel it I run it consistently at more then 1/2 throttle. I can ride around town and never have a problem, but I f I try to hold a good clip, like 100 indicated for a stretch, or if I try and run it hard through the gears it starts to starve. I can basically pull the clutch in and coast for 30 seconds and then be OK for a few miles and repeat.
I cleaned my tank out and it did have rust, blew the pump, tank vent and fuel lines out with my compressor, and ran a tank through with b12 chemtool. I saw the fuel line was kinked from in proper routing it has now been routed correctly and problem persists. The bike has new plugs too.
The second problem feels like clutch slipping. If I get on it hard shifting from 1st to second and sometimes third the rpm jump up to around 9000-10000 but I do not get a lot of power production. They eventually settle and the bike goes. This seems like clutch slip to me whats the easiest fix? temporary or permanent. Can I shim the springs to diagnose the problem? I am looking at an ebc street racer clutch kit, would this be a good replacement? Money is an issue. I was advised to run new oil with sea foam, which I will try, but I would be surprised if this fixed it. I figure while the oil is drained I could easily shim the springs or throw some stiffer ones in the clutch to hold me over.
Lastly could these problems be related, meaning what I am thinking is fuel starving is the clutch or what I think is the clutch slipping is really a fuel issue?
