Since putting rubber hoses around the throttle cables the firing problem has now gone away totally. The Seafoam has done its job and with the improved spark on the rh side alnost all the popping noised have dissapeared (slightly there on fast decelertaion, but that's normal on any bike) I am pleased to say that the bike now sounds like its got a new engine. Just for the recap I have now fitted splitfire plugs, (lifetime guarantee and easy starting) a manual tensioner on the front cylinder , new spring in rear tensioner, v&H cruzers with hardkore baffles,new Avon Venom tyres,new front brake pads, carb airscrew settings 2 3/4 lh side, 2 1/2 rh side, new air filters, seafamed the tank, and changed the oil every 1000 miles, (also some accessories mirrors, sissy bar, rack etc) I run premium unleaded gas as I find the bike just runs that bit better on it. It now returns about 50 miles per gallon, sound like a bike should and is alot of fun.
All these things were done at home with limited tools and knowledge. If your bikes running a bit rough there is usually a simple reason for it, do not be afraid to have a go...you may be surprised how simple it is to fix.
Oh yeah my shoulder is a lot better, still a litlle sore, but thanks to those who wished it better.
Take care and ride free...and have lots of fun....
