I recently did some carb work, adjustments, breather bolt reinstalls on my forcewinder for the sporty. I now hear a sucking noise which i could just swear is coming from the filter area of the air cleaner. is it truly so free flowing that it makes a sucking noise?

The bike is new to me and i did not ride it all too much before this work. Its a little annoying cause i can hear it suck, then the exhaust noise a microsecond after. sound normal?

I have a mikuni 45 on my bike.When I switched to a open style air cleaner, I noticed a ton of noise that I couldn't hear before.

You could hear the air being sucked in through the filter on my sporty too.

That is actually the sound of your dollars being drawn into your bike from your wallet.

I get all kinds of hiss when i get on the gas, even a little bit. I like it-- sounds like power! BTW, I hope to see you guys on the memorial ride for Domenic on Saturday. I grew up going to his shop...
