Guys,

My Birdie started having some problems about 3 days ago. It seems to run fine when I'm at speed, but at initial acceleration from a dead stop brings problems. If I touch the gas at all from a stop, and the revs drop there is NO power, and it really feels wierd. If I let off the gas and get up above 15 mph or so, and it drives just fine. Can anybody give me a pointer or two as to hwat might be wrong? Thganks a lot guys.

Sounds like you dont have a first gear to me? Probably tranny probs. This happened to me when I was manually shifting and accidentally left it in 2nd for about 5 mins of hard driving. (was trying to reset the comp by stomping it at stop signs at such) It would just bog hella from a stop but started to better at around 15. Make sure your in drive. (prob not the problem since youve been driving for 3 days like this. Then try switching to manual first. Im probably completely wrong since i have no expiriance and I dont even have a liscense yet. :)

Not sure about this but check your torque converter.
