Don't trust the other guy. Drop in new plugs. You need to know this for sure, and plugs are dirt cheap.

By the way, even if the plugs were changed recently, if leaded fuel was used in the bike, you could get heavy carbon buildup in a very short mileage run - although 50 miles does sound ridiculously short. Also, incorrect spark plug heat range could be the cause here. Simplest solution for you is to change the plugs now, and see if the 2-3000 RPM symptoms go away. If they do, pull the plugs in about 1,000 miles to follow-up on their condition.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

You could clean the throttle bodies and run a full tank with sea foam in it. Probably a good idea to do each of these fixes at a time, then test ride the bike to see if it cured the problem. Otherwise, if you try all the fixes at once, you won't know what was the problem - and it's always good to know in case it comes back in future. ;-)

Default New/used

New to you,but it is used. Have you checked the air filter? If it is old and dirty it can make it run way to rich. Cheap fix if that's the problem.Also everybody has there preference,but I would not run Champion spark plugs,have not had good luck with them in the past. Now I do not even know what my Victory has in it,but it only has 5K on it.Let us know what you figure out. Oh and does that bike have a cold start on it where you pull a cable out,if so is it adjusted correctly or shut off completely? Just another crazy idea. Good luck.

I checked air filter looks good. The choke/ enricher seems to work. I sprayed some cleaner in the throttle body. When the parts store opens I will be getting ngk plugs. I think their better than champions wich were in it.

Mine was missing at speed, I thought a plug wire was loose, reached down and got zapped. I changed the wires.
