Just signed up but cant post a thread??
I just signed up and tried to post a thread in the correct category but wasn't able to for some reason. So i apologize in advance for my questions being out of place. But I do have a few questions.
I'm in college and just went on my first ride yesterday on my 2001 Yamaha V star 1100 classic and noticed a few problems but can't figure out what it is. I purchased the bike used and it has a kuryakyn hypercharger intake and cobra 2 in 1 pipes.
When idling, it makes a clicking noise every few seconds which kinda feels/sounds like it may be misfiring but I dont know enough to make that conclusion. As result of this, it feels jumpy in 1-3rd gear. More specifically, it will be smooth and jolt forward a little. And when I rev the bike, the exhaust pops as the rpm's go back down.
Also when i shut the throttle, the engine stays revved up for for a little before it finally comes back down. I should also mention the carbs were cleaned very recently and the spark plugs are in good shape.
