if your tach isnt working you must have accidentally disconnected it somewhere when you took the bike apart.

what is your tach at when you're in sixth and tapping out at 80?

It is a V-twin so the torque will come and release more directly but push harder.


People to answer this one: the 650 army... Vmaxgirl, thomasninja650, Dave C... And Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited should have some ideas.

sounds like the bike is running on one cylinder. whered you take the carbs to get cleaned? does the bike sit outside in the weather?

As Romeo stated, water can accumulate around the front plug from sitting or riding in the rain. Some folks "seal" the plug with dielectric grease.

Another possibility, is that your CDI is bad causing it to run on one cylinder.

Assuming somewhere near stock gearing, 4th gear 6000 rpm = 60 mph

the jets where replaced at the same time that the carbs where, also irrelevant was the oil changed, air box cleaned, seals checks, chain lubed, and everyother fluid check and filled

i actually solved this problem earlier today. after suggested that maybe i was running on only one cylinder i had a idea, if its running it would generate heat, heating up the exhaust pipes, so i took my trusty laser thermometer and measured the temperature the fron cyliner was 80 degrees and the rear was 130 and climbing, so i was getting no power out of my front cyclinder.... well maybe its the fact i have no spark??? so i took a timing light to it and sure enough i was getting no spark from the front cylinder. so i followed the path of electricity and found out sure enough there was a wire disconected from the front coil, so i reconnected it and sure enough noticed a IMMEDIATE DIFFERENCE IN TEMP and also notice that my tach was working again!!!
