I have a 1999 Legend TT which has the same problem. I had the carbs rebuilt and syncronized, the air filter replaced, and it greatly improved the performance of the bike. Another issue with this bike is to really wind it out between shifts. It is a high performance bike and is easily lugged. BTW, I am getting ready to sell the bike for that reason (sad, I dearly love its handling). I'm not a good enough rider to correctly handle such a high performance bike. I hope this helps.
[QUOTE=Carl Sagan;1851773]Hey people! Just had a couple of questions for you.
I just got my 2001 Legend TT and I'm just getting to know the bike.
One of my concerns is that I feel like it's running a bit rich and the engine starts to break up in the lower gears...almost like it's coughing a little bit. when i open it up fully i dont get this this just happens in the lower gears.
Any idea what this could be and can i fix it without having to disassemble the carbs?
