Hey there everyone! So from my last post I have installed a new battery as advised by wingadmin and the bike is working a lot better, I had the bike out a few times for short runs and seems to work better each trip.
Yesturday evening I went out for a little ride with my wife and noticed that at highway speed I would have to give it more throttle then I thought to be normal, at one point I was passing a car and had the throttle maxed out and could only get it up to around 120kms/hr, it seems like it gets a flat spot and I can either ride it out or gear down a gear to get the exta boost of power.
Again this is my first goldwing, so I am not that experienced with this kind of bike yet, the total combined weight of the 2 of us on the bike would be around 450lbs which should be easy for a bike this size to handle. Carbs maybe???.... Let me know what you all think.
