Anyone know a mechanic in Houston who actually knows about 1800 engines?
I have had mine to 3 dealers and 1 independent about the poor throttle response and "blubbering" before catching and running normal when accelerating at highway speeds, and the weird clacking noises from the engine which existed from day one and only get louder. Extended warranty expired while fruitlessly taking it to the aforementioned places. Thanks.

If I had to "guess" based on your limited description, I would suggest that you have a failing FPR.
You would have to describe the "clacking" noise a little better for an opinion on that.

If you haven't already found it check out texasxriders.com for some local X rider contact. There are quite a few members there from the Houston area who might be able to assist you. Ride safe.
