Put your left header back on. That always helps with the sound. :lol: :lol:
Just kidding. I don't know unless you disturbed something in the exhaust. Exhaust bolts tight? Shot header crush washers?

Sounds like crap meaning what? Exhaust sound or engine sound?

The starter has nothing to do with the bike once it's running. Did you touch anything else?? maybe a cable issue bad connection..clean the battery/cable connects.

FAIR WINDS,
