Just home with my next project. My first 4 stoke bike after riding 2 strokers for decades, I though why not? I have started on the regular stuff for maintenance, SERVICE MANUAL!!, chain, sprockets, brakes, fuel screw, fork seals. I noticed the throttle is the push/pull. Do I really need the push cable? They both seem quite stiff to. Prob could need a good soaking. Packing the muffler this weekend. The test ride had a lot of popping on deceleration. I have done a search on this on the forums, no good answers. It sounded like a tuning issue to me. Needs a rear tire soon, shopping price now. Might have to wait and recover from this latest shopping spree. Any help on what I should be doing or looking at, I am all ears (said Spock). Checking bearing soon too....... thanks having the absolute best board for bikes on the net!!
