A week or two back I noticed my bike popping on deceleration and started poking around to see what the culprit could be. First thing I did was check for air leaks, and I noticed noise coming from the manifold between the carb and the head. A few shots of starting fluid in the area killed the bike and confirmed my suspicions.

Being that it was a part I'd somewhat recently replaced on my bike, I called Hall's and explained the situation. They were super cool about it and hooked me up with a new one for dirt cheap with free shipping.

Anyways I finally got around to replacing it tonight and the problem was very evident once it was removed.

You can see where the rubber has become detached from the flange at the bolt hole.


And the wavy lines on the inlet are where the rubber has peeled back, allowing air from the hole in the above picture to be sucked in.



Just a heads up for you guys running the repro units, it might be a good idea to check them.
