Hey everyone, I recently picked up a 2006 Shadow Sabre 1100. It starts easy and idles great but if you try and give it more than a little bit of throttle it cuts out and starts to die. I can get it to rev pretty high if I just barely hold the throttle open but then if you crack it it just dies. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

You could have a vacuum leak it's possible the carb boots aren't on right, you could be getting too much fuel or have a clogged jet in the carb. I would start by pulling a spark plug on each cylinder and see what they look like.
Hey sorry it’s been a bit but I finally got around to pulling the plugs. The plugs were black and dry so I think it’s running too rich. It does have a aftermarket exhaust on it so I’m wondering if someone did something to the carbs or something to adjust it for the pipes. How would I go about lowering the amount of fuel getting put into the engine? Thanks
