Post-service question *updated*
Yesterday I had the Wee serviced at the dealer where I bought it. $47 for plugs, air filter, valve clearance check, and throttle body sync. I supplied the parts, which included swapping the CR8EK plugs from the 1000. They actually did everything, or so it looked that way. I placed a bead of nail polish on each cyl. head cover and it was broken, so they either had them off or cracked the bead to look like it. They said that everything was in spec and gave me the readings, and gave me back the old parts. The bike has 6200 miles on it. A little early for the valve check but a few others have said theirs were too tight, so I figured better safe than sorry.
Now the bike seems louder. It could just be me, but I don't think so. The airbox sounds like its open. Unless the dirty old filter was plugged enough to quiet it down. It also seems to have more roll on power, from about 3500 to 6500 RPM under a load.
Has anyone else noticed this after having this service performed? I'm just wondering if I should take it apart myself and double check everthing.
