Re: Huffberry disappointing
A lot of mechanical noise from these motors seems normal, but every motor seems to vary. The noise level isn't always an indicator of dependability though. One of my nosiest motors was also one of my most dependable. Another noisy one didn't last 600 miles. My last 2 Flying Horse motors were a little quieter then most, and have been reasonably dependable.
Have you done any tuning on your motor? You know they're not tuned very well from the factory. They're usually jetted too rich.
