little power after 1/2 throttle ?

Recommended Posts

I have two xr80s 83 and 85 for the wife and son. son's 83 has very crisp throttle action, but my wife's is a totally different beast. it feels like the clutch is made from a wet sponge. after 1/2 throttle you continue to hear the RPMs increase with no increase in speed. I put a new clutch in it with no improvements. I have cleaned out the carb and its clean.

I have never checked the comp as my tester does not have the adapter for those small plugs.

kicks over fine, but it does idle too high and the plugs tend to fool unless driven pretty hard and hot, chuggin along fouls them in 20 minutes or so.

could the carb be really out of whack? I have only had these bikes a short while. despite all the same guts the two bikes sound and feel totally different.

And the adjustment screw on the case is set right.
