No PC (would like to get one), but like Alan said, need to get better exhuast and take it to the shop. But getting new exaust anytime soon ain't going to happen. The Holidays have my wallet thinned enough.

a pc would go far to fixing your problem, you changed the exhaust, now you need to adjust the fuel.

Reminds me of my boat carb issues. If the boat sat for more than 30 days it was carb cleaning time. It was a new boat and the carbs were rebuilt twice with less than 50 hrs. on the clock.

Holy guacamole this explains a lot. Bought my bike in April with 1600 miles now I'm up to over 7600. She never sits for more than a week. Past few months she's been getting slowly worse. At one time I'm coming to a stop at a light and it made a loud bang like there was a fist-size wooden block bouncing between the fairings at knee-level, but I had no choice other than continue ridings. Problems started after that; harder to start (moreso when already warm, weirdly enough), blows white smoke after a minute of idle upon cold startup, sluggish through most of the rpm range, has a clunkity-jitter all the time.

I figured it's either (A) air filter (B) fuel filter, or (C) carb prob. I have no money for the stealerships or most mechanics, don't know which mechanics are reputable/affordable. Don't have any mechanical skills myself, and with 2 jobs @ 70+ hrs/week, little money or time about all I can do is keep riding and pray.

What I need is someone to walk me through things live and in person, I'll pay for all my parts and tools... but how do I go about asking for something like that?

Anyway if anyone has any insights into diagnosing what I've got going on lemme know. Sometimes the issues are worse than others; weather could be one factor and this ethanol/bad gas could be another guess.

Well, good news. I changed my fuel lines, flushed my tank, changed my filter. All of which had sediment and shyte floating around in it Put it all back together and threw some carb cleaner in the tank, ran that out and then threw some Lucas oil Octane booster in! It has been running strong!!!!!! lost my 4-5k rpm sputter at any throttle position AND it is pulling harder than I thought it would from these simple things. Cost, about 30 dollars for filter, lines, and additives, value,...........priceless !

Well, I didn't put octane booster in this new tank and low and behold I have my 4-5k sputter again but I am noticing that this is accentuated when it is cold out. I'm sure I could use a carb tuning but I think I may try the Amsoil additive and hope I don't have to rebuild my carbs. My bike has always run better with octane booster, this is my first bottle of Lucas oil octane booster (I usually use NOS offroad formula) there is a noticeable performance difference in throttle response (I usually portion it out by quarters of a bottle per tank). What exactly do you have against octane booster Blue?

Thanks, today was better than yesterday. It seems to the sputter when it's really cold out. This morning, not so bad, this afternoon, not at all. Definitely going to try the Amsoil asap.
