Low torque and choque on 1st and 2nd gear

7 posts in this topic

Hi,  my bike never had a problem and now i noticed that in first and second gear it lags to give some torque, specially in first that now i have to turn the throttle grip a little more than before.

It starts right but has this behaviour then :/

The only thing that comes to my mind that could be related was cleaning the bike in the previous weekend and i forgot to occlude this hole (image below) and some water (very little) may have entered40dx.png

 

 

What can i do ?

can't be. that's the cylinder head. If water can get in there then you'd have no compression and you'd have pressure in the cooling system. Yeah, tear down your carb and clean it, that would be my first step. After I cleaned the airfilter that is.....

The hole you indicate is simply a drain port to allow whatever fluid may be in the spark plug well to drain away.  One of the potential sources is a leak at the cam cover gasket, as anyone who has ever changed the plugs on a high mileage Honda Accord 4cyl can attest.  (no such drains on that engine). 

 

As long as the hole remains open, nothing that gets in there can cause any real trouble.
