Throttle lag on 68 Bonnie
Thought I would float this out there being it’s a rainy Sunday afternoon on the east coast of the US. A little background, 1968 Bonneville, 2000 miles on a complete stock rebuild, 932 Amels, running points, just charged battery to be sure. Took a ride last week and ran it up to about 80mph up a long smooth hill and at just a little over 80mph it started cutting out so I let off it. For the rest of the day and still it acts like there is a “dead spot” in the throttle where it lags and you need to push through that spot and then runs normal. I’d say it’s at about the halfway point or a Little less. And it feels kinda like your driving into the wind, like your pushing it a bit more than usual. So any ideas of where to start? Oh and fresh oil change to 20-50 V-twin oil if that is a factor.
