My money is on the carbs causing the problem. Maybe float level too high or float valves not closing properly.

A lot of bikes are like that, like my 2020 MT-07. I assume it's the norm now. I knew a guy who lived in England who died when his 1972 motorcycle's stand was down and it threw him into oncoming...

It sound like it's firing on only one cylinder. Normally problems like this are due to carbs that are dirty, or not fully clean even after an attempt at cleaning. They are a lot more difficult to...

It sounds like classic symptoms of clogged carb passages. These little carbs can get gunked up very quickly if left sitting without a fuel preservative mixed in.

If they behave like mine did, you'll be very happy with them while they're new.

Keep in mind that you originally asked about 80 aspect ratio tires and the Bridgestones I posted about are 90.

That's silly. Bridgestone BT46 are available in 100/90-16 front and 130/90-16 rear. I've been using BT45s for years, and will go to BT46 as required.

I'll be interested in how the Sport Demons...

I'm guessing that rpwils wants to lower the triple tree on the fork tubes to effectively shorten the fork (lower the front of the motorcycle).

Wow, my Ninja 250 regularly goes 250 miles without hitting reserve. My MT-07 will go 170-180 before reserve, but its tank holds only 3.7 gallons on a good day.
