2002 1800c Different valve clearances
I had done the valve adjustment over the last winter and in the spring I was having issues down low at very low throttle. Popping and surging mostly. I thought it was because I did some work installing the power commander 5 and autotune. I figure it was a tuning issue and just needed to get it sorted out. Then I checked the wiring from the sensors to the ecm all checked out. Today I broke down and took everything apart to check the valves. I guess I wasnít to observant the first time. One of the valves on the front cylinder was tighter then the other. One I couldnít fit the .004 in and the other I could easily fit the .006 found the same on the rear cylinder. The exhaust valve on the front was a little tight and the one on the rear was fine. Would these discrepancies cause issues like these. This time I took a time with extreme patience and made sure all were set right. I have put a ton of miles on the bike this year but I think the valve differences were my fault.
