Sudden Loss of power
« on: Aug 02, 2021, 11:07:55 am »
So today while doing some spirited riding to my doctor appointment. My Raider backfired through the intake then i lost a ton of power and now its really quiet too. At first i thought i lost a cylinder but when i got home i unplugged 1 coil at a time and all looks good.  What are yalls thoughts?

    No, you'll be fine as long as it's open and not closed. Might have a bit less torque on the low end? Here's some good reading on what it's supposed to do:

      Looks like the pipe is broken or has slipped off

      Thank you all! I was able to rig it for the time being. Seems to be opening and shutting normally and enjoyed a nice ride. Thank you all! Been wanting to change the exhaust anyways.
