And has happened when engine braking. The strange part is when the other day I was in 5th gear going 60mph it did it again. It has 2600 miles on it from when I bought it new and and have followed the manufacturers instructions for break in & maintenence to the letter. I have been back to the dealer twice for the same problem and they can't duplicate the problem.Its normal.  Only things I have found that help to cure the problem the easiest way, is to re-route the breather and open up the airbox.,,,

Does God really exist?

This Question has been asked many times and its answer depends on person to person. I believe in God and they really exist according to my traditional culture. According to Science God does not exist, but there are a number of mysterious activity that is unsolved by the Science.

If you are searching for what is life, *****, soul, mysterious places then I suggest HERMETIC ACADEMY. This provides knowledge of the spiritual centers of many mystik and ancient cultures.

Bad fuel. Do you have locking gas cap? If not there seems to be a mysterious water in the tank. Otherwise, possible bad mass air meter, or timing belt. Bad electrical connections (from salt) cause bad behaviors. Clean electrical connections to bright metal both sides.

I am trying to change the clutch cable on a 07 xb12ss and a piece fell into the crank case. how do i remove the cover so that i can retreive the part this is such a poor design whats the best way to get it...

Not a poor design, if you dropped something down inside of a say Honda - you would be splitting the cases to get it out. On the Harley/buell motor you just loosen all of the allen head bolts and remove them and remove the shifter assembly and pull the inspection cover off. pull the next set of bolts if you want to remove the whole cover.
