Pow

When I'm getting off the freeway and I just let off the throttle and coast down in gear, I get a really loud POP.

Anything going to get hurt by this?

After this, I get some low grade popping on decel on surface streets, Not really like a pop, more like a puff puff...puff...

bike is all stock, under 1k miles.


Wise people talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.

I get one when I switch between Shell and Cheveron.

If it's more regular - you're lean and need to figure out why.
