Question about Motorcycles
Make sure the rear wheel is in line with the front one and that the chain is running straight. Then check the entire chain run for a stiff link. Either of these things will give the symptoms you describe.

as per an OEM part, they did not make cowlings for those, local bike shops can fabricate one, fiber plastic or glass, but of course it may be costly.

It could be a simple timing issue or even bad fuel. Check out your fuel.Mix or straight fuel? If mix, chk oil to fuel ratio. If straght gas, up the octane. Good luck, Ned

If it is making a tapping noise at a constant speed the valve lash gap is probably to large. It can however be a sign of a worn rod end bearing also. The valve lash should be .004 for intake and .006 for exhaust. As far as the rod end bearing the only way to measure it easily is to disassemble the lower end of the engine and use plasti-gage (available at any auto parts store) to check the gaps in the rod end to the crankshaft journal clamp up gap. You remove the lower rod end half sector then place the plasti-gage strip across the mating surfaces. The amount that the strip spreads out or does NOT spread out will indicate the actual gap after re-clamping the rod end to the crankshaft. Once you remove the end cap again you will note the plasti-gage indication.
I would start with adjusting the valve tappet lash settings first. More often than not this is the problem. Hopefully you understand the importance of ensuring the adjustments are made when the piston is at TDC. Top dead center.
Thanks for using FixYa.
