Now that I've put a couple hundred miles on my new ride, I'm starting to feel comfortable again.
One of my concerns about this new bike is a "Popping" sound through the carburetors when I rev up.
The dealer told me the bike's carburetors are set very lean to gain access into the country. He further stated he would richen up the fuel mixture to eliminate it after the break in miles. I've also been told it's mostly due to the emission equipment on the bike; I understand it has a air pump.
Is there anyone who could set me straight on what is the cause of this annoying Pop is?
Thank you in advance
