Default Low Speed Lugging?

Hi, it might be my imagination but my bike seems to lug a little bit now at low rpm. Could that be because of the Timing Wheel? it is only minor but I find myself using the clutch a little more to smooth things out. I have only done a few hundred miles on my bike so I could be just imagining it.

Any thoughts?

Gear, speed and what rpm is the problem at. 2000-2500 about as low as you want to get and you shouldn't need clutch to smooth anything. The recommended shifT points in the owners manual should give you a solid starting point til you get used to the bike. If it sounds like a HD at low speed your probably lugging it. Lol

should be better with the wheel, try some different settings, mines fine at 4 adv but all motors and states of breathing respond different to different advance

The throttle is there for a reason. Use it...or down shift.

My bike feels like it's lugging when I give it full throttle at 1250 rpm in 5th. What do you think the problem could be? Do you think the timing wheel would help?

Thanks for that. I'm talking about in 1st & 2nd gear under 2,000 rpm like when in traffic or car parks. I don't remember it being like that before the timing wheel.

NO! You obviously need riding lessons. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

I wish I could help Tav. I'm at 950 to 1000 at idle. Leaving a light or whatever other conditions, I won't go to 2nd until 2500-2800. If traffic is putzing along so slow that I'm below 2000 in 1st, I'm too pizzed to worry about it anyway.

All I'm trying to say is that I'm an experienced rider so it's not that I can't ride. I have just noticed that I have just gotten my bike back after the Timing Wheel and the baffles changed and I am noticingbi have to slip the clutch a bit more than what I should to stop it from lugging in 1st under 2000. I don't think I noticed that before. Maybe the fueling/map from stage 1 is not quite keeping up now and it's time for a new intake and PCV?
