    Had the cam chain tensioners replaced a couple months ago. Just noticed recently a noise I never heard before coming from the pipes, especially when the bike heats up, a consistent popping noise similar to a cork from a bottle. To me it sounds like a airflow issue. Thoughts?

    Hummm is this popping happening during deceleration or while your cruising along, or perhaps between shifts? Do you have any kind of tuner on the bike?

    If the noise starts when you let off the throttle then you might have an intake leak. Do a leak test... While the bike is running, spray a little break-clean on the intake manifold by each side of the heads. If there is any change in rpm or a stall then you have a leak.

    Good Luck!!!!
