Clicking Sound During Idle.. Reed Valve? Help please
Whats up guys! I have been reading this forum for a long time and I have learned so much from it, but this is actually my first post.
I have a 08 Vulcan 900 and recently installed Cobra speedster shorts, fi2000, and Barons BAK. I installed the pipes and fuel controller a couple weeks before I installed the new air cleaner. Here is my question:
Ever since I installed the Barons air cleaner, I have noticed a random clicking sound while the bike is idling. The sound seems to be coming from somewhere within the reed valve assembly.. maybe the vacuum switching valve? It is the same click that you hear when you release the throttle. I know it is normal to hear it when releasing the throttle, but should I be hearing it during idle with no throttle? I guess it could have been there before, but I just really noticed it after BAK install. If anyone could shed some light on this I would much appreciate it!
On a side note, I am planning to "marble" the bike to reduce/eliminate popping on deceleration... will doing this eliminate the reed valve and the clicking sound?
