I just acquired a 2009 Yamaha Vstar650 custom about 2 months ago. I acquired it with only 700 miles on it. Its previous owner didnt ride it much. When I got it I had to get the carb cleaned and adjusted.
About 3 weeks ago, I noticed that when goign past 40-45mph, it starts making a hissing sound, that sounds kinf of like a fly, when flying by your ear. It also sounds kind of sparkly. The sounds is coming from the left side, by my left leg, or a little to the front of it. The sounds also seems to have intensified as I have been riding it. This ONLY happens when accelerating after 40-45mph.
I thought maybe it is the left spark plug. Has anyone had this problem before, or has any input on it please? I am new to motorcycles, and dont know much about them. I just donbt want it to "explode" on me lol
