Clean the carb plus check for intake leaks.
checking for intake leak warm your bike up take a can of WD40 while the motorcycle is running spray with WD40 with the nozzel attached around the carb joint/manifold if there are intake leaks the engine rpm will change then you will know you need to replace the o-ring or gasket or carb manifold/carb joint.

Very poor acceleration for up to about 6 seconds from 1st & 2nd gears but then okay. More prominent from cold. Engine Management light not on but suspect Mass Air Flow Sensor? - 1.9 Diesel Space Star -...


If you have verified it's an engine problem, not a transmission problem-by noting the same slow response when car is stationary and in park or neutral-then possible the MAF sensor. Clean it with a can of MAF sensor cleaner. If the throttle body is dirty inside, clean that with crc brand cleaner, a throttle body intake cleaner. Check or replace the air filter. If the hesitation is still there, it might be the throttle position sensor. And if still not it, scan for trouble codes and check fuel pressure. Good luck.

Kia optima hesitant acceleration


could be spark plugs, dirty fuel filter, air filter, Mass Air Flow Sensor. bad spark plug wires. Dirty throttle body or injectors. I would start with the cheapest and work my way to the more expensive things if it doesn't improve.

95' cavalier hesitates to start and switch to 2nd gear


My friend it sounds very familiar to a TPS (throtle position sensor). Locate it by the throttle lever on the intake box.Place an ohmmeter on little brute while unplugged set the meter to 100 ohms and manually activate the throttle lever.Should read at 0 closed and 8 to 14 open . If not install a T P S unit.Cheap and readily available at most auto parts stores

More likely it is a slightly bent shift fork not fully engaging into second. The clutch and bearings are not suspect. Remove your foot from the shift lever then go full throttle in 2nd. Those new riding boots may be doing the magic unconsciously. Adjust the shift lever height if that is the problem.
