popping while decelerating can be caused by the air cut off valve I had it when a first brought my 86 aspy. my bike has sat for some time, so I put a cleaner in a full tank of gas and went for a nice long run, been great ever since
yep change of plugs is a good idea too

Re: Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra Tire

I put nothing but Avon tires on my 1100 and 1500 for many years and loved them. Last year I put an Austone Taxi tire on my rear, and it's amazing. The front is still an Avon. Highly recommend the Avon tires. The Dunlop Elite E4's have also gotten extremely, universally good reviews, although I have...

Hi, I saw someone with an adjustable aerial fitting that folded down when needed. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Well 1 and 2 are the softest settings 3 would be considered about medium I think. Sorry but I cant see how that would create a bo...

very nice to use Ive had them for several years now the foam does tend to wear a bit but it takes a long time to get there. if you look around, you can find the ones that have the goldwing emblem on the chrome edges very nice look

Re: oil in the radiator

oil in the radiator, would suggest the oil seal at the back of the water pump is faulty. seeing you in there, would suggest new seals and water pump all round.

Re: What is this LCD indicator?

It's just like the scale on the left side for the fuel - all it does is turn on when the bike turns on, to show a scale that indicates "higher than here is hot." So it comes on when the bike is on, and goes away when the bike is off. No additional funct...
