Question about 1989 Honda XL 600 V Transalp
Between 2000-3000rpm feels weak, usually have to be about 3000 to take off from a dead start. changed plugs feels the same. bike has only 12000 miles on it and uses no oil, thanks,Paul.
You need to set the valve clearance and the cam chain. After that try setting the fuel air mixture screw. Your bike is running lean off the bottom thats what's causing the weakness at lower rpms. My suggestion is to first adjust the tight valves and then the carb. The valves cause all sorts of issues.
Let me know if this does not work and I'll give you more solutions.
