1997 fuel injected FLHTC? Hmm. Did not know they had FI that year.

Anyway, the DynaJet sytem needs to be enrichened up a little. The open exhaust probably contributed to the lean running too.

3rd cylinder misfire code 73

Okay, a Honda. I don't see a code 68 for that though. Code 9 is number 1 cylinder position sensor-this sounds like a crank position sensor? That may be the problem.
If you have multi port injection, check that injector 3 is pulsing and putting gas into the cylinder.
A new fuel filter wouldn't hurt, but I doubt it is causing a problem in only one cylinder. Check for vacuum leaks. Change the plug for #3. If still no help, check fuel pressure. Doesn't sound lean, either, although if fuel pressure is low, it might be. Spark plugs that are white is an indication of lean running, BUT I doubt that your plugs have been run long enough to determine that.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon, with a 2.7 odb2 scanner on it ... says it is bank 2 is running lean, but when you start it up it smells like it is running rich... Is it getting too much air or too much...

I'd trust the scanner and the exhaust sensor are giving you the correct information- running lean is too much oxygen in the exhaust. The mixture is too lean, whether from metered air (then the gas ratio is too little-check for fuel leaks if you smell gas around the engine. Check for cylinder misfires if you smell gas around the exhaust.), or from un-metered air.
The only two sensors that are for fuel requirements are the two front ones-on each bank of engine. The two rear sensors are for monitoring the efficiency of the catalytic converters.
Check the injectors on bank two. Possible that one of them is not letting in the required amount of fuel. Pull the spark plugs and read them. A good firing plug with the proper air/fuel mixture will have a brown or tan insulator and very little deposits on them or the electrodes. A misfiring plug may have black sooty deposits on it-you can spot it immediately. I don't know if the engine has run lean long enough, but a good firing plug in a lean mixture will have a blistered look to the insulator, like white or blanched. You may find a clue by reading the plugs.
Running lean in the worst case is a problem in the valve train, do a compression test if you haven't found the problem. Not a bad idea to clean the MAF sensor with maf cleaner, available just about anywhere.

98 ford ranger 4cyl 5 speed replaced coil packs plugs and wires 3000 mi ago #3 plug electrode burnt off just replaced plug runs smooth at idle but starts to miss after i change gears could it b inject

If the injector stuck open the cylinder would be rich and that should turn the check engine light on.
It could have been a bad plug, or a lean mixture on that cylinder.
How are the rest of the plugs ?

I installed straight drag pipes on my 2002 super glide. Runs great but second cylinder pops on decel and pops when idles. Also shows some sign of black soot at end of this pipe. Gets 48 mpg plus. there...

This is typical of all Harley's that I know of. rejetting is not going to help. Since the engine is a single carburetor engine, if you rejet to lean the rear cylinder out, you also lean the front cylinder as well. If it's running correctly now, rejetting to lean the rear will cause the front cylinder to become too lean and overheat.

Since you're complaining of "soot" in the rear pipe, I'm assuming that there is no soot in the front pipe. Most Harleys do tend to have a little difference in the mixture between the two cylinders but this sounds like a bit too much difference to me. The reason for the soot is that the rear cylinder is running richer than the front. A reason for that could be a vacuum leak to the front cylinder causing that mixture to be lean and diverting the fuel to the rear cylinder resulting in a rich mixture in that cylinder. Check for vacuum leaks at the intake to heads junction, at the vacuum port off the carb.

Another suggestion is that usually drag pipes have a "flat spot" in their performance at around 55 to 65 mph due to a lack of backpressure, I'd install a bolt in the rear of the pipes. On most drag pipes, there is a hole to bolt the baffles into the end of the pipe with. Take a 1/4" X 1 1/4" stainless steel bolt and insert it into the hole. Up inside the pipe, put three stainless steel nuts on the bolt. Do this to each pipe. It does not effect the sound of the pipes but does provide just enough backpressure to almost completely eliminate the flat spot.

Good Luck

Failed inspection on 2004 Ford F150,heritage series ; Fault Code; P0174: System too Lean.I changed PCV valve and Hose to valve cover gasketbut still failed inspection.Please Help

Have you checked for any small vacuum leaks on any of the emissions hoses? A vacuum leak causes a "too lean" reading. If no leaks, you could have a malfunctioning emissions valve, bad oxygen sensor or fuel injection problem. First I would remove the spark plugs to see if they verify that you have a lean condition. Lean plugs will look white. Google for an image of what a lean burning plug looks like if you like. If they look like burning lean then proceed to trouble shoot each possible area. For example if only one plug shows lean but the others don't you know to look at the injector for only that one cylinder. So don't mix up which plug came from which cylinder.
