Anyone ever have an issue with a little "cough" from the intake when opening the throttle?
I get one occasionally when opening the throttle from the closed position. The bike doesn't stall, doesn't seem to stumble, but it is annoying.
When it's cold after start up if you open the throttle a tiny bit, say 2000 rpm, it gives two or three of these coughs before it smooths out.
Are these bikes set very lean from the factory? At 6000 miles, could it need plugs? Is it time for a trip to the Dealer? (don't normally like to do that, but the bike has five more years of extended factory warranty).
Should I dig into the air cleaner and look around first? BTW, do you have to pull the tank to get to the intake box? looks like no small job just to get to it.
If'n I do it, I gunna git a wippin .... OK! I do it!!!
