No Acceleration

i am having a problem with my acceleration on my sachs 505/1, columbia commuter. once it gets to top speed and slow down a little it accels good, but not when the bike is stopped. gas flow is good. what is wrong???????

Re: No Acceleration

and it also loses power climbing hills, where it used to have some power.

Re: No Acceleration

statistically speaking, it's probably a fuel related problem.

first see if the choke is completely open when it should be. See if the throttle opens all the way. Adjust cables or linkage as necessary. Check and clean the carb along with the tank and filters.

if you've got a wet clutch, check gearbox fluid level.

so many possibilities...

Some detailed history of this problem might make it easier to diagnose.
