Yesterday, when I went for a ride on my ZN700, it started bogging when I twisted the throttle and seemed to do it worse in the higher gears. Then, the engine would only rev up high and stay there. I wasn't far from home and managed to make it back by braking to keep the engine rpm down and the traffic lights cooperated. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but I'm suspecting a bad vacuum leak, possibly a bad carb diaphragm? Those carbs are not fun to remove and re-install due to the throttle cables connections. I did see some carb diaphragms for sale on fleabay. Anyhow, time to remove the tank and take a look.....
