Question about Yamaha V Star Classic Motorcycles
I have a 2006 V-Star Classic. It had 3,600 miles on it last year when I bought it. It had the Harley pipes on it and I went back to stock. I noticed a clacking sound. I first thought it was an exhaust leak. It wasn't. I had several people listen to it including a couple of dealers. Nobody knew what it was. I rode it from Texas to Calif. (4000 miles) The sound was still there. Had valves adjusted no change. At 12,000 one dealer asked if the noise level had changed and I said no, so he told me just keep riding. To me it sounds like peston slap. I have 18,000 and it might be a little bit louder, but not much. Does anyone know what I am up against.
It sounds like something internal to me but i could be wrong-maybe the loud pipes caused something to vibrate loose-do a real good inspection there are many books in library under 629 that are troubleshoot manuals on internal noises
