If a bike has no power on take-off but has lots once you are past the 3000rpm range, what would be the most common item to check? The timing is spot on with the points set at .016, new condenser and coils O.K. Any help a/o guidance is appreciated.

Gilles,

Sounds like it's back to carbs again. The GL1000 needs all the poke it can muster on takeoff. I hate making suggestions to yourself as you seem to know your stuff already, but are you satisfied that the pilot screw settings are right? It really does sound like a fuel problem rather than ignition.

I had set the screws as per the info in the Haynes manual which I beleive was 2.25 turns. From there, I took a screwdriver with me and went for a ride. First, I screwed them in 1/4 turn at a time and it got worse as in very lean. I then decided to go the other way and screw them out using the same procedure. I am at about 3 1/4 turns now and it seems to be the optimum setting
