  4. Bucking under heavy acceleration

    General Mean Streak
    Could be a few things. Clutch starting to go, dirty air filter, bad gas, clogged injectors, low oil (doubtful), etc. Start with the simple basic stuff and work your way from there.
  5. Space Between Exaust Pipes

    General Mean Streak
    Kinda hard to tell from the angle in that pic but for the most part they look ok. BTW, those are straightshots.
  6. Space Between Exaust Pipes

    General Mean Streak
    Post a pic. Which model pipes? It may just be the heat shields need adjustment and not the mounting hardware. Also, you don't need to post it in multiple threads. It's not going to gain you any friends and with only five sub-forums for the meanie, it's hard to miss a new thread.

  10. Chrome Color Paint

    Mean Streak Maintenance
    Every chrome paint I have ever seen never looks like real chrome. It ends up looking like crap. You could strip the paint then polish them, but that's a lot of work. Just leave them black. Who's gonna care, the fashion police?

    Mine does it too. It's coming from the gas cap. If you pop the cap it stops for a short time. Is there a strong smell of gas when it whines?
