Warm weather rpm race and no acceleration

Post by Achenbad »



I've had some issues in the heat after riding for about 15 miles the rpm's race and I seem to lose my momentum. Totally stopped yesterday until it cooled down. 97 Goldwing just turned 50K. I was told to change oil and run a can of Seafoam through it with oil for a while. I changed the oil recently because the same issue, however I put regular oil and another additive (stupidly) in and it definitely was worse. Any suggestions would be great.

Do a quick oil change to correct oil soon, two wouldn't hurt.

Thanks! I changed it today and put some seafoam in also. I planned on put some miles on this weekend and doing another change.
