Hi. I just picked up a 1982 Honda Goldwing Aspencade in a trade for my Pacific Coast. I've never owned a Goldwing before but I'm really starting to enjoy the bike. First time for a big touring cruiser too but I've owned several BMW 1100/1150's so I'm somewhat used to big bikes.

The bike is in pretty good condition, 55k miles and has had many upgrades. Now for a quick technical question in my "hello" if anyone has any suggestions...

The bike runs well and starts well but the carbs have a bit of a "bog" around 3000 rpm until you really goose the throttle, then it takes right off. If you roll onto the throttle moderately, it seems to hit a "flat spot" and the engine can sputter under load but punch it and it takes right off. Any thoughts? Carbs were said to have been rebuilt recently, vacuum advance appears to be working (not sure if it's holding)....

Thanks all.

Tony

I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here.
