New to the forum, but I think im at the right place. Got an 84 1200a, when going thru the gears up or down I getacceleration instead of decceleration even as high as 4K, when I pull the clutch & try to throttle down, mostly past 2nd gear. Any Ideas ??:?

Yep, you have to start twisting the throttle back downin anticipation of pulling in the clutch. It's all in the timing. I used to do that with my bike but I finally have got it down to where the bike doesn't go "zoom" when I pull in the clutch.

Safe riding.:waving::action:

No, I mean when I pull the clutch in 2nd or higher it stays accelerated until I let the clutch out or downshift below 3rd.

Poor carb sync or a sticking CV slide can cause the rpms to stay up for a bit.

Go to Randakks.com and look for a tech tip on High or eratic idle. That will give you the list of possible suspects.

CV Slides are pistons that ride up and down in the carburetors. They are raised and lowered automatically by the varying vacuum in the intake system. There's a carb jet needle attached to the slide that enrichens the mixture as the slides are pulled upward and leans it out as the vacuum lessens and allows the slide to drop lower which reduces the amount of fuel through the jet. CV stands for Constant Velocity due to the fact that the slides tend to maintain the same velocity of air passing through the carburetor with varying power settings.
