No more hesitation!!!

I just wanted to give a shout out to GoldwingDocs for fixing the off idle hesitation on my '85 Aspencade. It was not real bad but REALLY irritating!! Take off from a stoplight and a little hiccup and hesitation occasionally a backfire then it ran great. I forum searched the problem and came across an article crystolpistol posted using the do bro washers on the jet needles. THIS WORKED WONDERS!!! Easy to do, did not even remove the carbs. Runs fantastic, better than new! So thanks again for the best motorcycle forum on the planet and the best people who are eager to help with no attitudes. Our bikes may be old but they sure are Gold.....

I got the tip from another fellow in 1999, and if anything, fuel mileage was better maybe as I needed less throttle? Glad it worked for you too. :)
