Question about 2004 Suzuki VL 800 Volusia
Has a bit of a flat spot just above idle somtimes it will backfire has been this way since it was new
It has always been my experience, no matter if it's a car, bike, lawn mower, etc, if it backfires, it's the timing. If it's a constant poping thru the induction system, it's something to do with the valve train. Flat cam. lifter out of adjustment, bent push rod, bad lifter, etc. I think you get the picture. Mentiioning that you have a "Flat Spot also points to timing. Since it's been like this since new, I would look at the possiblilty that the timing marks on the cam and crank were not properly aligned when the unit was built. It's a long shot but work looking into.
