Exhaust banging and popping
on: August 31, 2016, 07:37:01 AM
I'd never noticed before, but when on a ride the other day, it took about 5 minutes once the engine warmed up from cold for the pops and bangs on deceleration to appear, in Dynamic mode. When it was cold, there were no pops or bangs. Is this a stealth setting, so as not to upset the neighbours? :008:

In over 7000 miles, I've not noticed this before.

I'm assuming this is normal, and that I've just realised another characteristic of the bike?!  :027:

Mine is the same, and in a very childish way, I find myself riding along and closing the throttle so I can listen to the pops and bangs

Funny you should say that because I also fitted a Mivv and it stopped period.
