I just bought a 2000 321 Gas-Gas after riding a 1970's Cota for a long time. I really like the modern features, however, one area that has gone further than I can handle is the "light" feel on the throttle. I have a hard time modulating the power. Anything I can do?

Thanks in advance.



The 321's are great bikes and are adjustable for individual tastes quite easily.

Here's some possible solutions:

1) Cut two coils off the slide return spring (raising the spring rate) and stretch throttle slide return spring a little to bring it back to the origional length.

2) Replace the Domino throttle tube with a black one if it is white (the black tube has a smaller ramp and is therefore a "slower" throttle).

3) Retard the ignition a little to decrease throttle response (this really smooths out the bigbores).
