Re: new bike new here help?

just thought i would upload a couple pics i took today, i cut the front fairing towards the top so i can put the bars more straight because they would hit the fairing and frame almost immediately so it was hard maneuvering at low speeds, also took off the ductape on the tail holding a piece of foam for the rear seat, he cut the section real wide so i had no other option its going to be replaced soon anyways, also how would i make the rear pegs so they stay open? i just bought a set off ebay for $20 brackets and all

Do you mean under load when riding?
It might be detonation if you are trying to accelerate from low RPM.
The tensioner is automatic and not adjustable. But if you only have noise at very low RPM it's probably not the tensioner.

Yes, but clearly something is preventing the spring from returning.

Yes, that's why you swap the spring around.
Without the pump you will probably not be able to use all the fuel down to the bottom of the tank.
As I said, to one of the vacuum ports.

No, it's not normal. Something is causing it to stick. Make sure the grip is not touching the switch cluster and that the cables are not too tight.

The pump will prevent it from gravity feeding the carbs.
If you keep the pump then you can usually swap the spring to the other side of the vacuum diaphram so it stays open, and clamp off the vacuum line.
If you want to use the vacuum diaphram then you need to connect the vacuum hose to a vacuum port on the intake manifolds, usually one of the synchronisation ports.

Then you shouldn't have a pump.
Is the vacuum line connected to the engine or carbs?
