    Remove limiter? or just tune up?

    Hello guys and girls
    Well I just bought "my childhood love" the bros 400 and I am slightly dissapointed with performance... :P Welll it goes, but kind of slugish... and just whatever I do to do a wheelle- nothing! kind of like clutch would be worn out (it is'nt really)
    And then I've read that the engine has some sort of limiter
    Is there quick fix for that?
    Many thanks
    Al

    its prime limitation is that it only has 400ccs and that is in a very mild state of tune.

        The 400cc is.....well a bit slow don't get me wrong I have two of them. The best you can do is try and remove some stock weight, put some bigger jets in, new exhaust system and better air flow.
        As for a "wheelle" go to wheelie school and learn to do it with skill instead of just pure power.
        Can I ask why you bought a 18+ year old bike with a 400 detuned twin engine to do wheelies on, I would have got a bandit or something.
        Hope you don't take offence by my comments.

          Ha ha.... (I use to wheele my old 125 CB, CB RS, and even CG)
          I bought the bike becouse I love it for what it is (apart from slightly irritating Not Wheeling!) Yeah! its a baby of mine and when it comes to slicing through City trafic- I do load of show off to all the Ninjas and else "Stop go" Bikers... yes! it is an perfect all rounder! (an exeption again- that when I feel a bit "Short of adrenalin" ) Regards tuning it up that might be the only option...
          Thank you all for the reply, I shall be less ambitios for some while
