It won't cause any engine problem, however it could get caught up where the exhaust exits the muffler thus causing a momentary power loss, the stock pipes are quite expensive you might be better going that route, you would have to cut the pipe open and then reweld it, that would be a lot of work, you are better off replacing it with either a stock one or aftermarket.

Hotwater heater new won't heat??


Is water inside tank Hot?
Open TP valve and also open drain valve.
If tank is hot, then you might have plumbing problem caused by bad faucet cartridge or check valve.

Red reset button is located on upper thermostat.
Test for 120Volt across top two screws on upper thermostat.
You might have a bad upper thermostat.
If electric water heater has some hot water, then upper element is good.
Electrician should enjoy following page full of information.

We do not seem to be getting as much heat from the stove this year as last year. The stove makes a loud clanking sound when it heats up and cools down. It is a regency wood stove Model R3/R9/RA3. There...


That stove has a metal baffle on top of an air tube that can warp with age. It might be changing shape as it heats up and making your sound. If this is the case it can block the path for the stove pipe and cause performance issues. The baffle plate and insulating blanket on top can be easily replaced.

My Honda VTX 1300 backfires when I close the throttle or when I shift down. What should I do. It sounds like a gun shot


Your bike is running lean (too much air and not enough fuel). What, if any, modifications have you done to the bike? If you changed the exhaust out for louder pipes, you need to adjust the f/a (fuel/air) mixture in the carburetor to compensate for more air going through the bike. Let me know here if you have made any type of mods to the bike.

Have a2008 fatboy put on a set of big radius when letting go of thrortle it pops what causes it to do that


decel pop is caused by a lot of things! if you have big pipes; ie:drag you need baffles to tune the exhaust wave; theoretically upon decel instead of exhausting you are actually allowing reversion- which allows exhaust to actually renter your engine and try to get compressed again; very bad for performance, etc big pipes are cool but need proper baffling and tunage to be useful; may be too lean possible fix w/ supertuner/ dyno runs; I like "lollipop" baffles you can make for under 5 bucks and tune as you need; thats what I run on my 95HP sporty; Have Rinehart true duals on my Road King and via ecm tuning you can really dial it in. F/I is great but you need to "pay to play" no quick fixes like in the carb days; really need a dyno or some sort of computer tuning capability; I recommend Super Tuner rather than the piggyback setups; more expensive at first but wont fry your ecm either. A good dealership will be able to tune it right the first time in under an hour...sorry for the lenghly reply but I see this question all the time...T

The flame starts to fluter after 5 to 10 minuets and it trips the


i'm guesing this is in a mobile home.this furnace is hard to see the baffles.you really can't check baffles unless you get on the roof and pull cap and look down with flash light but that still doesnt tell much. have you checked to see if you have combustion air coming in to that room. if this is in a mobile home should be a flex pipe in ceiling or some times it comes from underneath make sure you have air from out side coming through. If this is a mobile home if you have alot of snow on roof this will cause the same problem you are having. i would check the flue and intake air first before i took furnace apart. Gas valve doesn't usually cause this problem. the repair guy is probally right but i would check the two thing i told you about first.
