1981 XT250 flat spot

Recommended Posts

Hi all forum members. I have just bought a 1981 XT250 and love it! I have 2 questions, when accelerating in 4/5th gear around 5-7000 revs I hit a flat spot and feels like the bike is getting starved of petrol. I assume this is a carburetor problem? I have never ridden of these before (main bike is a Ducati Multistrada) so not sure what to expect.  Any ideas? Also I mostly ride on the road and use it to go to work so would like to have a bit more acceleration and less worried about the top end. Any advice on front and rear sprocket sizes would be great. 

Thanks Farmer
