R/R. new battery
i used the haynes tech book, i have what sounds like one piston slapping when i pull the plug and turn her over. i will use the book, and tech manuals for the rebuild, if that is what i do. i am not mechanical, but ive always been able to do what is needed from a book on all my vehicles. i just dont have a good place for the rebuild
i had run to the corner store first thing in the morning and when left the store i really got on it. heard a slight ping and it sounded a little odd, but i thought maybe it was just my imagination, the next day i went to the store again, and when i left it began to make a loud noise like something was in the cylinder bouncing around. then it died. i put it in my pick up and took it home. after a few days i pulled the plugs one at a time and turned it over. it seemed like something came out of the right front piston. maybe a piece of carbon, (i seafoamed the bike well this spring) maybe nothing but hot air, im not sure, but then the piston was slapping to beat the band. it may be something more. i wont know until i get it apart.
