Running sluggish even after adding air cleaner, this is poor fuel delivery.The carb needs to be cleaned and then checked.This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

    Check the air boots to the throttle body assy. Check the clamps and make sure they have not vibrated loose off mounting flange and make sure they are tight. Sounds like your fuel air mixture is screwed up, Check for the air fuel mixture screw beside the carb or on top of carb.The clamps may have got misaligned from its position.---------- This should help.thanks.Helpmech.

Oil leaking from air filter 2006 sportster


Hi Anonymous, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck

I have a 2007 suzuki C90 anyone know of any enexpensive way to get a little more power out of it I already have cobra pipes and a fuel management system on it have


Apart from going full tilt and bombing the engine. I might suggest putting an aftermarket air cleaner on it. Either a hypercharger or an Arlen Ness kit, maybe even spiked air ram. Either of these will give you extra performance.
I have a VZ1600 with PC III, Cobra slash cut pipes and a Hyper charger and it really pulls hard and goes far faster than a stock bike. At 80km/h in first there is a rev limiter that prevents you going over that, but second so far I have had it up to 130 km/h and still more throttle to go.
