Hey everbody, I just picked up a 1985 zl900 which I have not been riding too often (no licence yet) and over the past 100K it has been a bit of a disapointment. The power seems to drop a lot, at 5000 rpm it's like it goes from a four cylinder to a sewing machine. the rpms stay up but the power disappears.I'll pull in the clutch, rev the p*ss out of it for about 3-4 seconds and it's ok for a while. What could it be - plugs, gas line, carb?? Any ideas??? It seems to be happening more and more once the engine is warm, but remains an intermitant problem. Otherwise, this bike, my 1st Kawa, kicks *ss( too bad it only holds about 6 liters) Also, does anybody have information or any ideas about the torque or horse power of this particular bike? Is it really as powerful as it feels? Thanks for any input.
