    thank you for your help because the mechanic clearly does not know what hes doing... he changed the carburetor and said he changed the spark plugs i have to bring the bike bac to day so we will see. I was thinking could it be the chain because my chain does need oil bad its almost rusted...
    thanks for the views and help guys i just wanna ride>>>>>>

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, "sputtering" at 3K would indicate an air leak and/or a very lean mix; too much air, too litlle fuel. To confirm check the sparkplugs. If the tips are whitish gray, then the lean mix is confirmed.

Offhand, if the bike in neutral will rev past 3K, possibilities are:

  • an aftermarket open breather air filter is installed but there was no re-jet done on the carbs;
  • an aftermarket exhaust is installed but there was no re-jet done on the carbs;
  • there is no air filter installed or not installed correctly;
  • the airbox is not sealed;
  • the airbox to carb rubber coupling is loose.

Alternately, it could be fuel starvation, check fuel delivery to carbs. Drain each carb and measure / compare the quantity from each bowl.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Hi! YOu may have fuel flooding but its good you replaced the carb. You may need a better fuel burning sparkplugs like IRIDIUM or PLATINUM to prevent fuel flooding. Change the sparkplug wires too for better electric flow. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    For now, please replace the plugs for it may fix it. New plugs to avoid fuel flooding. Can avoid, sputtering.

    The chain will be out of the issue, but it will be good if its gonna be fixed or lubricated.

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

No problems with EGR valves/system on this model car. Its located under the throttle body. Your valve is electronically controled by the ECM/Computer. Pretty bullet proof setup. What is the actual code number that autozone gave you?? Let me know the code number and will take it from there.

RPM QUESTION


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.,,,
