NEED HELP.............This Just started yesterday. Bike ('60 R60) started as always on first kick. When bringing up the RPMs, I can hear a weird popping/snapping noise. First sounded as if was coming from the rear engine housing area but then heard it a few times through the exhaust. When I come off the RPMs, it stops. But it is sporadic not constant. Idles great but making this popping/snapping type noise. Any ideas????????? Oh, the generator light is now staying red.

Firstly i suggest to check

Firstly i suggest to check the sparks plug.If you have a new pair or known -good try them.After it's better to walk step by step
After that you can check the contact gap .
Let us know

Best regards

Luca

Yup, plugs were carbon

Yup, plugs were carbon fouled. Cleaned them up and made sure gap was correct. Runs like new!!!!!!!!! Just ordered a 4 pack of NGK B8HS off Amazon Prime. $13.22!!!!!!!! All better now.

I feel like an idiot, should have checked them first..............
