    Question Too lean or rich?

    Hi all, need some help with the carb. My bike seems to have a small delay in the middle rev range before getting power.

    For example, when the engine is at 6k or below rpm, I can give as much or as little gas I want and it will pull hard, and will keep revving up to really high revs. However, when I open the throttle above 6k rpm, it takes a second or 2 before the engine starts to pull. It doesn't bog down or anything, it just acts like everything has been delayed.

    I had the carb thoroughly cleaned at the end of last year, and I am suspecting it's fuel delivery, probably too lean or too rich that the second I open the throttle, there's too much air or fuel rushing into the engine?

    I had that problem before. I just cleaned the air filter and it fixed that problem
