Hello,
my bike has a slight hesitation when I change gear. The bike has stock jetting. It feels more lile the clutch cable is not pulling the cluctch tight enough. Is there anything i can do? i have ajusted the cable via the adjuster but it seems to just move the biting point out further. is my cable worn?

Can you be more specific about the 'hesitation'?
Do mean the rpms stay high then drop a moment after releasing the clutch? That would mean something in the clutch is either slipping, or the engagement is dragging before full plate contact(?)

Or maybe you still have the TPS plugged in and you are getting a igintion 'glitch'?

its as if when i change from first to second the bike kinda holds back a little and then speeds up. Could this have anything to do with the alcelerator pump? the squirt?
