Small, random pops.


How frequently should we hear pops from a 650 engine? I hear a small pop or two out of the muffler on decel now and I can't remember hearing them on the first 3000km I put on the bike.

Mine does it on ocassion. I think it's normal. If it's excessive the valves could be off or maybe need a throttle body sync.
In case you haven't heard.

Higher temps and humidity means leaner fuel conditions, and very sadly I don't think our friend Greywolf will be responding.
