    rode my bike to work this morning and its not running right.

    the throttle seems sluggish on the bottom end when i twist on it, and sometimes it gets a high idle. no tac to tell how high.

    A little background.
    2007 dyna street bob. daily rider.


    I washed it yesterday, no pressure wash. Just a mister on the hose to wash off. but ive ridden in rain many times in the past.

    it was painted a month or so back, so there is a possibility of trash in the tank im guessing.

    i also live on a dirt road, but have cleaned my filter and didnt seem to dirty, didnt change anythign with filter off.

    im thinking its possibly something to do with something in the tank due to the paint. but the wash yesterday is just on my mind to. can i run some sea foam thru it or change the fuel filter if that dosent work. any help would be much appreciated.

    How does the throttle/response feel at running speeds? Say 50/60mph, does the throttle feel slugish?
