sad but true... don't get caught. Last time police was hunting us with one van and one jeep, 6 officers for 3 offroaders. They used their radios to block the track ahead and behing of us, we were trapped. But they were nice, regretted of ruining our Sunday afternoon. Took our passports and sent us off with no fee. Depending where you ride and who catches you it'll cost you up to some 10k €. That's the downside of living in one of the overregulated western European countries.

That's the reason why I travel to Italy, Slovenia, Albania, Greece and this Oct. Tunesia for riding. And there are several rallies you can join for leagal offroading.

...and as my story goes, here in the US, I find myself working like a mad and have hardly time to ride. O man, I really miss the alps too.

Well i replaced my Fuel Pump with a brand new solid state Facet Pump.

Replaced the R/R with a sh548-12. It still gets at hot as hell as the old one.

But bike still splutters under power bad. Wont accellerate under load more than 3000 rpm with twist of throttle.

Idles fine. Just now power.

Any suggestions ?

Lots of things could cause that but since your carbs were so buggered I'd start there.

I'm thinking maybe the slides are not rising as they should. Take a look before you pull the carbs off. Remove intake plumbing and run the engine. See if you can visualize the slides rising.

If not, take them apart and look for tears and holes. Also make certain the carb tops are put on correctly...only one orientation is correct.

Well Bugger me.

Dropped the bowl off the rear carbie and the main Jet Fell into my Hand.

Black plugs on rear cylinders made a good starting point. Screwed it back in and put everything back together and its now got enough power to shred the back tyre.

I believe that picture is from a series of pics that was part of an original Honda brochure for the Africa Twin. Someone elso may know for sure as that is the only one I have found by googling. I'm sure I've seen more...but can't recall where.

However, I did find the following today. Not a bad scan...by someone.
