ok, i took better pics today, they're much clearer. i outlined the actual valves in red using microsoft paint, that's all they will close, does it look like they're closed enough? I was talking to my friend today, and he said that if they're stuck about half open, when i romped on it, it'd get too much air, and bog, just like my bike is doing.........what do you guys think? thanks

did you rebuild lately? could you have gotten the control spring criscrossed instead of having the spring ends parallel? could the spring be 'sacked'?

no, I have no rebuilt it lately, but when i bought it, it supposably had just been rebuilt before i bought it, only a couple hours on both top and bottom end. and i do not recognize those parts you described(control spring), i'll look all that up in my manual.......

Spit,

Your powervalves aren't going to close 100% of the way, maybe around 1/2 way or so. The only way you're going to really clean everything is by taking the cylinder off and removing the powervalves. You can use oven cleaner if you do this, just don't let it sit on the aluminum too long (15 minutes or so) and be sure to wash it throughly with soap and water when you're finished. If you can open/close the powervalve smoothly then you should be okay. The PV will usually stick open or closed. When opened the bottom end will suck, when closed you'll fall off power really quick when trying to wind it out. Your symtoms that you've described don't seem to match, but since you have it apart it's a good idea the check/clean everything.

Well I was going to say the samething Faded did about cleaning them but he got to it first. Like he said..the only way to actually clean the entire powervalve 100% is to pull the cylinder off and disassemble the valves.

If it isnt a problem that just occurred after a rebuild, I doubt it is the spring. I am sure you have already checked to see what the control spring looks like and have figured out what I was alluding to.
