Ear shave question (done by previous owner) caused of exhaust sputter?
I love this forum. I often don't have to make a new topic because I find what I'm looking for pretty quickly when I run into an issue. (recently had the POOGS problem and currently having a problem with the left pipe sputtering on deceleration and idle). I found a similar issue here < https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19299 >. I haven't tried seafoam directly in the carbs yet because I have a question.
The previous owner did an ear removal and it appears fine, except there is no cap of the rear carb brass vacuum fitting. Could the source of the problem with the left exhaust?
Also, I pulled the seat earlier to get a look at everything and there is a crack in the piece in front of the battery (don't know the name of it, but I believe it is connected to the spark plug wires). Should I be concerned about this?
