Air box

IMHO, if your air box is full of fuel you might have a fuel problem. If so, and one or more of your plugs gets fuel soaked and stops firing, you still might have a fuel problem:D

Fuel in air box

I read some of the advice, here is mine for what it is worth, I don't care if a plug stopped working. If it was soaked with fuel and you had fuel in your air box, you have a fuel delivery problem....

Something happened

Something happened to cause the marks. I am guessing a clutch failure some where in the past. It might work fine and then again it might be out of whack due to the damage. I see these come up on...

Octane

It is true that you may get more power from lower octane gas in lower compression motors as it is a more explosive fuel. the need for higher octane fuel is to eliminate "pre detonation" or ping as it...

Ignites early

Not trying to start a fight about gas, but prem. gas ignites slower, the higher the octane the closer to kerosene it is;)

Exhaust

Also, your tunable exhaust is a much better choice for this bike then strait pipes, it needs a little back pressure to run right. Once you have it running right with that seat, "HOLD ON" or it will...

Knock

Back on the "knock" thing. I have found three things in the OEM design to be wrong. I know, with OEM 4 ME call sign, WTF.
First, the fuse box, everyone knows it is junk and should be replaced...

Sounds like a vacuum leak or clogged fuel flow. I would check all the vacuum lines and carb manifolds for leaks, then check to see if good fuel flow from the petcocks to carbs, if all is good, pull...

Miles?

Phil. I know you ride a lot of miles, I think you said around 300,000+ between two of your bikes, what kind of miles did you get before your pingel started leaking?
