Question about 1978 Suzuki GT 380

2002 jr 80 will idle but will not rev up

I have a 2002 jr 80 we bought, not running good, so we do not have any history, oil injection has been removed, low hours, hard to start, when we do get it running, it will not rev up, idles ok, but bogs bad when you try to accelerate.
New plug, pre-mix in the tank, Compression seems to be ok.
Will this bike run without the oil injection tank?
The carb is very clean. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NEXT?

Carbs really need to be inspected-a manual is a must-or a similar *** make-if oil n gas mix is rite ratio then ur ok-look at the electrical for any cuts,corrosion or looseness-no wheelies

Low oil pressure 93 GMC P/U w/350 motor w/205,000 miles gauge

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

Triumph Bonneville T120 oil pressure issue

The oil pressure on a new engine is:

Idle is:  20 - 25 psi
Full pressure is 68 - 80 psi.

Pressure switch operates at 7-11 psi.
The pressure switch could be faulty.

Pressure when hot may be very low
and  if it is returning oil to the tank
that is a good sign it is still pumping.

Bike starts ok runs ok when first started,when temp gets to about 80 degrees,it stalls,runs jerky,wont idle ,lack of power,could it be the T.P.S.

i think the engine oil is the problem.
because i think at above 80 degrees it is loosing its viscosity due to which the piston is slipping inside the cylinder.
change its engine oil .

Change all the filters (fuel and air). check and see if all your spark plugs are firing or just change them. if it is fuel injected make sure your injectors are working. Hope something there helps get it running good.
