blackomen If the cam chains are just a little too tight it can make it not want to start. I figured that out when I switched from auto to manual tensioners.

michiganteddybear the warm start issue may be a simple fix.. look into the pickup coil mod for that one. another cause of warm or hot start problem could be a weak battery.

thtanner You know, my petcock made that same noise that you're hearing when the spring was failing. The sound was radiating through the tank as if it was an engine sound, but wasn't.

in the left you must ignore the exhaust "leak"
otherwise the bike runs great
