Re: Bogging when accelerating in top gear

 Interesting story,? I have seen more than one rag pulled out of air boxes.? Who is putting them in or are they getting sucked in?? Wouldn't you notice if you lost a rag while working on your running bike? Are they trying some kind of "modification" to make the bike run better that I'm missing??

Thanks for those lines, John. That is the perfect illustration why all
of the really good mechanics always start by checking the basics.
