For sure, I just figured I'd ask. Maybe I can find out if my issues are induced by my own tinkering, or pre existing. As well as any known mods done. I see the airbox was opened up a little, and the air screw was out at 3 1/4 turns. No sign of power in the electrical/lighting system, so hard to set idle to factory with no tach, etc...
Turns the header red hot in 10 min of riding around my neighborhood also, that normal? It's certainly not because it's hot out..
Uh oh, I'm not in a wrenching thread...
