hi. my 89 rc seems to be getting sluggish when i try to get it revved up. by sluggish i mean, when i step on it, it seems like it has no balls anymore. it used to happen before but that was mostly old gas. im thinking it might be timing or the timing chain but it only seems to happen when i stomp it in 2nd (which usually revs up pretty good). its a 318tbi 2wd. thanks in advance.

Often replacing the fuel filter will help. My '88 was having similar problems, and the filter in the tank was the guilty culprit.

yeah, right on with the fuel filter. I did an entire tuneup on saturday, EXCEPT for the fuel filter(didn't have time), and it still ran slow/sluggish. on sunday, I got around to getting the fuel filter changed and MAN, what a difference!
