Quick question, I have an 87 LT250R, yesterday when I was out riding it was unable to climb a hill in first gear it was pretty steep, but a hill I had climbed with it before. Plug is good and properly gapped. My question is if my powervalve was gumbed up would this effect the power when climbing hills, but not when running wide open on fairly flat fields? Tried to climb the hill twice and both times it lost power and stalled, didn't seem to matter how much gas I gave it, it couldn't make it!
So if it is the power valve what is the simplest way to clean it, I already have the replacement gasket just wondered what other people thought.
Sliding down hills backwards is not my idea of fun :angry3:
If you don't think it is the powervalve what do you think it is, it was able to climb smaller hills directly there after.
Thanks for any input!
