It idles fine, runs so so on acceleration, but the popping and backfiring during deceleration was getting worse.
When I would ride it for a few miles, shut the bike off and restart after a fuel fill up for example, it would run great and no popping or backfiring during deceleration.
Well, today I was on my way home and when I came in my garage to clean my bike I noticed a small oil trail coming from the cam sensor. The 6Mx1.0 bolt is stripped out!
I had a 6Mx1.0x15mm bolt to use instead.
Lucky the hole is deep enough and tapped. I cleaned the threads with a tap and all is good.
On another note, is this oil bottle level normal for 550 miles? First time I emptied it.
