Question about Vance & Hines Motorcycles
Purchased the longshots and retailer suggest: before installing ask manufacture about other modifacations maybe needed for such things as rejet carb? increase air intake? and better fuel regulation? in order to get better performance after instalation. My bike is a 1998 anniversary edition fatboy, 80 cub in, stock carb and air intake system. I need some advice. Thank You

SOURCE: Exhaust Popping Troubleshooting
My decel popping stopped as soon as I removed the air injection, but started back with aftermarket pipes. I adjusted the idle mix screws to richen it up and the popping almost went away.
Find answers/discussion at bonnevilleamerica dot com forum. Great sources for parts are bellacorse dot com, and newspeedmaster dot com. I don't know any European sourses for aftermarket bits.

SOURCE: white smoke coming from exhaust
White smoke could indicate coolant in the combustion chamber. Not likely if you have an air-cooled bike. It could also mean that you are running in a cold climate, if the temp is around 20 or less I would call this normal.
If your bike is water cooled I would keep a close eye on your coolant level and oil level. A blown head gasket could allow water to get into the combustion chamber (causing the smoke) or mix with the oil (even worse). If you notice it using coolant I would have it checked out by a mechanic. If you want to check it yourself, do a compression check on both cylinders. If one is rather low, there is your problem.

Well there only one way the fuel can get into the crankcase and that's from the fuel tank. The petcock must be draining and the float needles are not stopping the fuel flow. Do you have a prime position on the petcock? If so do not run the bike in the position. Try topping the tank off with gas and letting it sit for a while and see is the gas has gone down and then check the crankcase and see if there's fuel in it again. i still say its got to be your petcock.
