Q: Vehicle only runs with high rpms with air box disconnected

asked by on November 11, 2017

My bike is a cb125. It bogs down in 2nd gear and higher with the air box connected. If I disconnect it it runs perfectly

Hey OC. Thanks for the question tonight. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer repair tips or services on motorcycles, ATV’s or scooters - only cars, trucks and SUV’s sold in the USA. You should probably consult with a motorcycle repair specialist.
