Ok, so I installed a set of Harley Dyna mufflers when I got the bike and she has been popping a lot on decel since then. I tried a few things till eventually I got a pain in my ass and decided to attack the issue head on. I bit the bullet and got a complete Jardine exhaust. She is coastered.... I used the old reed valve gaskets and I found one to be leaking. I got new gaskets and now there's no leak...... Got 3 different types of exhaust gaskets (Harley, Kawasaki, and spurious). I ended up using the Kawasaki ones and there are no exuast leaks......... It's ear shaved, 'rejetted to 42/140 and the carb boots are lined up perfectly. No vacuum leaks any where. Right side carb nipple capped off properly, left petcock to carb vacuum tube repleced. Air screws turned out a whopping 3 1/4 turns!!!!!
My question is........ With this new Jardine exhaust, I was expecting some popping on deceleration but how much popping normal for an aftermarket exhaust? I am still getting some popping on decel..... About the same as the Dyna mufflers but of course it's louder.
So, how much popping is ok????
They sound amazing though lads, soooooo good!!!!
