Anyone familiar with R1's? I need help!
I recently purchased a 06 R1. Let me tell you first, it does not run NEARLY as smooth as my 600rr by any means.
At lower RPM, like under 5k, when I am just cruising in any gear, the exhaust sounds like its popping or "gurggling". Do ya know what I mean? The bike has micron slip ons with no power commander. Also, the throttle response is not as smooth as my 600rr. I really want to figure this out, because it is very irritating. Even if you don't have an R1, maybe you can help figure it out. The valve train is significantly louder then my 600rr, and the cam chain seems to be kind of loose based on the noise, so I may have to change the CCT. Would a loose enough cam chain allow the valves to be a little off causing rough running?
My possible thoughts of which it could be: Exup adjustment, valves could need adjustment, TPS needs adjustment, needs a power commander to adjust A/F ratio
Any other thoughts? There is no reason why this baby should not be runnin smooth as butter!
Bungle in the Jungle!!!
eep Beep YEAH!!!
