I have gathered as much. NYC streets are brutalboth the 107" and the 117" tend to like to run at 2k rpm and will "buck a little at less than that. so which ever you get the best response, either 1st or 2nd, but keep it around 2k. close-in city riding is not your bikes friend.
Yes Sir..l was toying with the idea of switching out the transmission. Is that insane. Maybe l would think.If your only doing 25mph most of the time, I can see alot of shifting back and fourth. Your right at that odd speed. I don't think the tranny is bad. I think it's just the speed your at.
Dang Harry...put the beat down on the New Guy?...lolThis bike has a 6 speed. Not sure what speed you are "cruising" at. 1st gear in my Pit is only good for maybe 20 mph tops. These motors like higher rpm's but if you are "cruising" in 1st, you may want to take a riding course.
Yep, thank you so much for the input. I'm certainly not a mechanic but l dont think it's a cam because l know because it was a one owner bike and l work with the gentlemen.I sure like the paint on the Pitbull. Beautiful.
If a previous owner put a cam in it. An improperly adjusted carb needs could also add to the ‘loping’ you describe. There are instructions on how to adjust the carb in separate threads.
Hard to know if it has been cammed up without seeing the cam, so if the carb is properly adjusted, just live with it. I had a K9 that hated to run under 2000. Jerky as hell under 2500 in first gear especially. I finally resigned to running 2500+ rpm. Easy fix.
