So I just recently put some new bars on my Suzuki GS500 (bikemaster sport), and I adjusted all my controls on the bars to the specs in my manual (throttle, clutch, choke, etc.).
When I rode it yesterday, the first time since making all the adjustments, I had a problem accelerating. It may have been this way all along, but it is definitely more pronounced now. It was fine while riding in the low RPMs (up to about 5000), but anything higher and it would just rev up really quickly, as if it was in neutral, and I wouldn't actually move any faster. So it was fine if I accelerated through the gears slowly, but when accelerating quickly, I basically ended up in 6th gear, revving at 9000 or higher, but still going really slowly.
Any ideas what could be the problem and how I'd fix it? My only thought is that maybe the clutch isn't entirely releasing??? But that doesn't make much sense, b/c I adjusted it to the specs in the manual (4mm free-play).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
