4rt Tick Over Question

Recommended Posts

Guys,

hoping you can put my mind at rest i have an 08 repsol and when it is sitting on tickover the is a definate miss or pop from the exhaust ??? I've checked everything and everything appears OK ?? I've changed the oil's and filter, changed the air filter (new), new spark plug and up'd the idle speed as it was a pig to start seems ok now though!! But still has that noise from the exhaust ?? maybe i'm being paranoid, i sure hope so!!

First four stroke i've had and i love it but still finding my feet with the maintenance side of things !! PARANOID !!!!

Cheers in advance !!

It is unlikely to be a problem but to cover all possibilities you should also check valve clearance, a tight exhaust valve will also cause popping in the exhaust.

Probably an air leak in the exaust joints, check nuts on cylinder head to exaust flange and joint to silencer. Gaskets at said joints may need replacing. The main symptom of exaust air leaks is a popping or backfire when snapping throttle shut. Check these joints first before getting too involved.
