My Sweet Vegas..... With Issues
Hello, My Name is Erick and I am new to this forum. I am a seasoned mechanic on many vehicles and several motorcycles. However, I am running into some issues with my '03 Vegas. I just want to ask someone here who really knows this bike.
It has the vegas performance pipes on it and everything else motor-wise is still stock. My prob is that while accelerating (in any gear) it wants to pull my arms off but when I keep the engine at a constant speed then it feels like it misses or is out of timing. Sometimes it backfires but moslty it just runs rough. Start up is fine, accel. is fine, downshift is good also. I changed the plugs/oil and cleaned the air filter, it improved a little but the prob is still there.
Could it be:
1) cam chain tensioner not adjusted? --how do I properly adjust
2) bad oxygen sensor?
3) bad/dirty fuel injector?
