So, I can read, and some of the stuff I read is rather questionable. I read somewhere that my expensive NGK Iridium plugs weren't worth the money. I have also read about the dreaded "tailpipe explosion" that occurs with these bikes. My buddies riding tail gunner started calling themselves the Beemer Fart Smellers.
Slammed a pair of Autolite 3923's into it a few days ago, the Fart Smellers couldn't complain today.
In my opinion, started nicer, less hesitation and felt like an Airhead under my but.
