Hello, I have an LX50 with the big bore kit and perf cam. It has 4500km.
just for the last few weeks it makes a funny noise. It seems to run fine but when it warms up it makes a sound` like popcorn popping. not too loud but noticeable. Does anyone know what that is??
Thanks, Paul

Are you running regular or premium fuel?

Does it happen when you back off the throttle?

No it's more general and random but I notice it most when under load. It's been getting more pronounced over the last few weeks.
