75 mph top speed (what the !!!!)

Post by jamesbrune » Sat May 21, 2011 10:43 pm

my wing wont accellerate past 75 mph. what i have done to in the last 6 months . new timing belts, removed carbs and cleaned them, bought gauges to sincronize them.
new fuel filter, new air filter and new plugs gapped at.031 . bike starts good any time, accelerates a little choppy out of the hole. at idle smells like its ruuning a little rich.
Iam not sure what to do, where to start , it accells ok up to 70 but then thats about all she'll give me . :?
