Hi everyone. My 2007 LX 150 seems sort of sluggish since I started riding more after it finally warmed up. She starts fine. Acceleration is a little harder and requires a bit more throttle, but the problem is most obvious when I coast. When I'm using no throttle and no brakes, she decelerates more rapidly than she used to. I thought maybe the tires were low. I checked, and they were a bit low, but I filled them up and it had no effect.

I'll probably take her to a shop soon but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas, or anything I could check or adjust. I have a little tech experience. But my main reason for posting: is she still safe to ride? Might it be a potentially dangerous problem?

Thank you in advance for any ideas.

How many miles on that 2007? Could be time for a valve adjustment. Also make sure your air filter is clean.

Rollers may be worn out, it is not shifting properly.
