    Who's the best 8V 2011 Norge within 300 miles of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. that is not Leo's or Caswell?

    1. To avoid confusion, you might consider deleting your earlier post with same subject line.

    2. Not sure why you have ruled out the two you mentioned, but -- if he feels like taking on another customer -- try Jim Baron (formerly of Rose Farms Classics in Woodstock, Il.). Good luck finding him, but worth the trouble. Again, he may not have time for "unknown" customers.

    3. Bring it to the Moto Grappa -- OK, a bit outside your range fan :giggle: -- but I Tom Sawyer talented friends to do such. See, e.g., https://bill-and-kathi.smugmug.com/Mikes-8v-Norge-Exxon-Valdez/n-6gDHbq/

    4. More realistically, what seems to be your problem?

    Best wishes,

    Bill

    The bike hesitates (?) around 3800 RPM. Dogs along until around 4200. Then takes off like a rabbit. Caswell is swamped and I have lost faith in Leo's. They couldn't find the solution. When I talked to the Service Mgr., about the flat tappits he looked like I had just asked him to explain quantum physics to me.

    How many miles are on the motorcycle please? After 10 years, it is probably not unreasonable to assume that your fuel injectors are in need of service. There are several posts here about sending them to RC Fuel Injection. Money well spent.

    Remove them and send them in for cleaning, rebuilding, and testing ($28.50 each side). You will most likely fix your issue you are experiencing as I suspect your spray pattern is poor. Removing them yourself is not difficult. There are posts here about it. Use the SEARCH function.
