Default chuggin

Slow speed maneuvering with my bike in 1st and at just off idle, my by 'chugs' or a better description would be it sounds and jerks as if its only firing on one cylinder. It runs like a champ other than that, had the tank off the other day and cleaned the throttle bodies, wich were hardly dirty, but got cleaned anyway. Was thinking maybe a touch too much advance? P.I.T.A. on my bike to mess with the wheel on a maybe thats it. I will tho, but wanted to hear from some guys who know, first

Are you operating in the "friction zone"? Accelerate to keep Rpm's up to say 2000rpms and slip the clutch. Also slightly drag the rear brakes at the same time.You will have great control that way. It takes practice.

Got the taking off part down, but going thru the parking lot at bike night at the local quaker steak and lube (not a paid spokesman) at slow speeds it chugs, id like to just putt thru there, as they tend to frown on the guy blasting away thru pedestrians

No sucking intended Sly. I have been riding over 62 years and always had problems with making tight, or U turns until I got a RLAP video. Viewing that was not only good for me, but good for my bike too. Just spreading the Gospel Sly.

All the time or just when cold? My bike when cold has a cyclic grabby clutch. Not a smooth slip. But a grab and release, grab and release.

But this is the bike movement not the engine.

I love the smell of Freedom in the morning... smells... smells like... Victory!
