And i took it down to the shop today just to check something out and in talking to the owner i was told that i was running at too low an rpm most times. i shift from 1st to 2nd at 3k then shift up at 4k for each gear after but he told me i should be getting up to between 5 and 6k as running under 4k could most likely be lugging the engine. i shift the way i do due to firstly the bike having 40k miles on it when i bought it so i'm trying to put as little wear on the engine as i can in hopes of it lasting me awhile, and also just because past 4k the engine really starts getting noisy, i know this is normal, but i just can't help but think it is hurting the engine. is there any real harm in running the rpms a bit low like i have, or running them as high as the dealer said, for that matter is anything below the red line fair game? i just want whatever is best for the engine.,4500 to 5000 rpms and up is the area the bike has quickest reponse. But I only use that range for getting up to speed, then I generally shift to a higher gear and lower rpms. It makes a difference in the mpg. and I can easily shift down for passing. I wouldn't suggest going much below 3000 to 3500 in higher gears. That would be lugging it. You don't want to be in 5th and doing 20 miles per hour.,,,

Not good, too much pressure in crankcase, result from bad piston rings. If you are lucky, there can be clogged rubber pipe from engine to filter case.

ac compressor will drop the rpm by about 350 -450 rpm and this is compensated for by the CPU which increases the fuel setting to maintain constant rpm. Run fault codes if there is a problem

Check the condition of the air filter and replace it if dirty. Also, if the spark plugs have more than three or four thousand miles on them, try a new set.

Sounds like time for a new battery. A battery is only good for about two years. Then it starts to loose it's charge quickly and then it will not take a charge. Check the water level in each cell. The water should cover the top of the plates in each cell. No water = no charge. Install a new battery and start the engine. Put a volt Ohmmeter on the terminals as the bike revs to around 2500 rpm. The meter should show 14+ volts. If only 12 or less, the charging system should be checked.

Slow deceleration in neutral


it revs fine but then backs down to idle slowly. Cdsracer mentioned that his cousin's in SoCal also does this.... Is it due to the different dirtbike clutch basket size? Any idears? Something simple maybe?Mine both drop right back down. Sometimes a slight hover at 2200 RPM or so then settles at 2000 RPM (usually only before motor has fully warmed up) ,,,
