hesitation in excelleration

Postby pearjohn1 » Thu Jul 05, 2012 3:04 pm



my problem is with a 1985 goldwing limited edition 1200 with fuel injection
on trying to move away there is a hesitation to the throttle till you hit 20-30 miles an hour or
if you accellerate through the gears it disappears the problem only seems to be at the lower speeds
can anyone help please

the bike has been recently stripped and serviced to stop this problem

Try running a little sea foam or lucas injector cleaner thru it. Mine will do that once in a while due to getting a little water in the gas and the treatments clear it right up.
If that doesnt work it might be your fuel filter needs changing
