I have a 78 GL1000. When I really step on the throttle I can hear a loud knocking but if i accelerate slowly it's quiet. I am taking to to get tuned and sync'd tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what it might be.

Thanks,
Ken

While you are having it tuned up have the valves adjusted. A too tight intake valve will cause a popping noise in the air intake when you accelerate.

Dave O,
Will it sound like there is a leak in your exaust? I have a similar problem on my 83 Aspencade, and I re-adjusted my valves tonite, a little earlier, and got done about 10pm. It quiented down some, but I believe it also may be in the carbs.

Sounds like out of sync carbs to me.
