Pops on engine breaking ? 62k miles

Greetings,

Always get great info from this site.

My question:
2000 RC51
Mileage 62k
Original owner
Runs fine just put 6k on it this summer.

Replaced all exhaust gaskets from Cylinder head to mufflers last year.

Bike runs fine, seems under engine breaking in 2-4 gear. Slight downhill. I get an occasional pop out of the exhaust ?

Valve adjustment ?

Is there a vid on the valve adjustment . I do the valves on my duc no problem.

Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks
Cyril

Sometimes even with replaced gaskets, there can still be leaks. Check the front I'd say...you can usually hear leaks when the engine is cold too.

On Carlos' project SP2 we ended up using 2 Honda front gaskets. That worked OK.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

Do you have the flapper mod? I had the same popping in my 05' but after doing the flapper mod, the popping is gone.

Smile Questions

I will check the front cyl for a leak. I did change that (Brass or copper) like ring that fit into the head.

On the other reply. Sorry for the silly question.

What is the flapper mod and where and what is it ? Sounds like something to do with the exhaust ?

Thanks to all for the help
