I have always been a 2 stroke guy, so think of me as the annoying 13 year old that knows nothing. Just picked up a nice 06 and it seems to have boatloads of horsepower but the engine just seems ungodly loud to me. It seems as though I can hear each valve getting slapped by the cam. Runs good and no smoke. Previous owner said head was redone with new valves about 2 engine hours ago. But you know how that goes. Just wondering if these bikes are just noisy or if I should get in there and check it out. It does have a powerbomb and q4 that has been bent pretty hard. Also, the previous owner says that the bike needs 100 octane ran in it but said the piston and crank are stock. s this true or is it a line of BS? Any help will be great and I will try to post a sound clip tomorrow.
