the camera angle makes my head hurt. don't go for cool here.

looks like a typical hipster dipshit build is what i think xb is trying to say, but don't hold me to it.

specifically, does it do it while riding, or just when you rev it up. what carbs, filters, jets, etc. we need more help to help you.

are all the exhaust joins sealed?

I'll give you a hint; you have fuel and air mix combusting at the wrong time or in the wrong place ;) she ain't suppose to make pops and exploding sounds outside of the 4 sealed combustion chambers.

Step one, figure out exactly where the sound is coming from, one cylinder or all of them, inside the exhaust system or inside the intake system.
Are there any indications if you examine all four spark plugs together? Are you seeing any signs of blow by at either the valves or the piston rings? Oil consumption or combustion leakage around the cylinder head? Soot accumulation inside your cheap shit pod filters? Oil and crud spewing from your crankcase venting lol does it even have crankcase venting?

:D lets all take a guess at what it is based solely on his video, hopefully he will share the outcome once he figures it out; I vote one or more intake valve is fuk'd.

Solution: Put way too much theft insurance on it then park it someplace where somebody will steel it strictly for the front forks and wheels that don't really belong to it. Should not take long because I'm sure it has no steering lock, that was probably eliminated with a large hammer and a steel punch.

Sound is most likely exhaust. Put up needles one notch. Sounds like it's running lean right off idle. Why did you by a bike that was not tuned yet? If you are not mechanically inclined then you are going to have a hard time with that bike

Exact why do assholes respond... I don't get it. If you have no help...
I'm brand new to this forum so I can't speak for the 'assholes' but I think you misinterpret the intent and message they are putting out, I hope I don't step out of line here...

Forums are largely full of arseholes, I mean enthusiasts, who have many miles in the saddle and experience in working on motorbikes and they are happy to help those who have respect for their passion and knowledge.

If someone who knows nothing about motorbikes and has not even bothered to try and understand the very basics of how their motorcycle works comes on the forum and asks very simple questions which clearly highlight the fact they have not tried to research the issue will get flamed.

If you can't present a question with enough detail which shows you have tried to evaluate the situation or problem in order to recieve an educated reply then you really should not ask the question, just go and buy a new bike and don't mess with it and get it serviced by a professional and leave the modifying to people who put in the effort to understand what they are trying to achieve and the process it will take to get there.

This is a question that will get you flamed. "My horns not working, what could possibly be wrong with it?" or even better, "Does anyone know if 2011 GSXR forks will fit my CX500?"

It shows you have done stuff all to investigate the question you want answered and the people here are not at your beck and call to answer questions which have no well thought out content which might allow them to evaluate avenues to achieve the desired outcome.

The reply's you'll get will show you as much respect as you have shown to the people you ask the question of.

Do you even internet outside of facebook?

I'm not being an arsehole, if you're genuine and want good advice from good people this is just some advice on how to go about it.

Well as you have noticed your question has been met with a fair amount of ire. Warranted or not there is a reason for it to a degree. The same information could be delivered differently but whatever. The type of bike you purchased appears to be the one that form was the goal not function. Not a good bike build format. They are usually wrought with problems as you are finding out now. If you sift through the posts without getting caught up in the bashing you'll find useful information. That said, this is probably the start of a long line of shit you'll need to address. Unless "looks" is all your about I'd flog it and start again with a "Functional" motorcycle. Good luck.

dipshit build,yeah,polished with 3 day old soiled 2lb load diapers,to cover the stench of the con ,see,hipster is in fact defective, missing the part of the brain that can sense the con,hence the proliferation of cell/conning towers ,directing ,infecting and controlling the device laden hipsters....next up from evil apple the gadget
http://rarehistoricalphotos.com/gadget-first-atomic-bomb/
it is not a coincidence that "the device" was also a name for the most compact human destruction machine yet produced ,now the destruction ,no longer smelting flesh and bone,is limited to the destruction of the human spirit of creativty and individualality
this is why they build and are attracted to motorcycles so exactly identical in hideous form and function

Beside the cheap Chinese scooter shocks, I think the exhaust is sucking air in and igniting unburnt fuel in the exhaust, but that just a guess, better tune it, set the valves, timing and all that good shit before you even touch anything else. Don't just assume it's the carbs. U do know what the say about assume it makes an ass out of u and me

in 50 years of playing with bikes I have never came across that. looked odd to me
Its the OEM configuration for GSXRs for a while. And a few other sport bikes as well.
