    Hello,newbie here,just bought first XV535,up to 60-65 bike runs fine.Checked compression,plugs,timing etc.All seems perfect to be honest.So suspect carbs, just not sure what fault I am looking for-diaphragms,jets.Any advise gratefully received. Thanks Paul

    What happens when it gets to 60-65?

    Hi Joker,
    Basically up to 55 or so,it runs perfect,up thru the gears without issue.Once over 55 it becomes a struggle,almost as though a restrictor was in place.Keep the throttle wide open,have a lnong enough motorway,and eventualy 65,but its seriously hard work.If I had a rev counter and ay redline was 8K,I would say bike does 5K in each gear.Fitting original exhaust next week to see if that makes any difference,if not then Carbs strip tiem I guess. Cheers PK
