    Lack of acceleration

    Ok here's what i have going on, first its a 2003 TW200

    I've pulled the carb, (carb was leaking now its not)
    replaced float needle o-ring
    main jet (130)
    fuel screw is 2 turns out
    needle shimmed

    it now starts way better cold and I did gain a little more power but nothing like a friends 03 tw same gearing and we both weigh the same and he can leave me in the dust on his.

    with about 60lbs of extra passenger i'm down to about 45mph and small hills about the same

    Switch your plates with your buddy's bike and then ask him why his bike is so slow !
