    Looking for Ocala Florida help.

    Anyone near or in Ocala that knows how to diagnose the X? It's got a funny sound coming from exhaust I can't seem to get the phone to pick it up.
    Need to find out if it's something major.

    Please help a brother out!?!??
    Thanks

    I would be happy to help but it will have to wait until roughly Oct 1st when I return to The Villages, Florida for the winter. If you can't get it diagnosed/fixed by then, look me up.

    Loose baffle? Cracked weld? Almost need the 'feel' test while running. Use a thick glove when touching to prevent burns. Maybe use a wooden handle too, tapping or pressing on the pipe to figure where the noise is coming from. (Matt, Mark, etc. I couldn't help setting the table for your responses)

    Cobra exhaust. The pipe coming from the front cylinder sounds like listening through sea shells.

    I am sure it will be asked but once the more knowledgeable people start checking in. They will want/need to know some info about your bike (year/model, exhaust system). Also have you recently done any work on it right before the noise started or has it been sitting for a while? I am just guessing here as I am far from an expert but some things I would think about checking. Oil, check to ensure that it is properly filled and to see what the oil looks like/smells like. Did you check and see if the pipes are securely connected to the cylinder? Possibly a bad seal or gasket. Again, I am not the expert but I would start there and hopefully the more knowledgeable ones will chime in soon.

    I just passed through Ocala on 301 on my way back home from SC

    I live a few hours away and couldn't even meet you half way for several weeks as my weekends are booked until mid June

    try and put up a video on youtube. If you have a buddy with an IPhone ( if you don't have one) then ask them to take the vid
