What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

The exhaust is coming along on the CX. Chopped 13 inches off the rear of the ugly Harley mufflers to make glorified chrome meaphones. Looks much better but sounds like straight pipes but even louder somehow. Going to hopefully build some baffles for it tonight because my engine is not a fan of the low backpressure. Then a coat of high temp black paint and it should be good!

Hmmmmmmm I’m just gonna hope this is contamination from when the engine was apart. Changed the fluid. No coolant in the oil whatsoever so I doubt the mechanical seal is bad.

Clean as hell for a 60k mile bike.
