hi,
im new to forums,but thought i,d give it a go.
i,ve owned many harleys and recently aquired a xg750 street.2016 ,400 miles on the clock .its not been used alot and been stood in garage for a while.
my problem ,the bike has no power very flat and mid section of exhaust glows red hot after a couple of minutes of riding.
ive removed rockers covers and vavle gaps look ok,but ive yet to check gaps and do a compression check..
sorry to dive straight in,but i could,nt think of any other way.
best regards dewhurst8888

Welcome to the forum from Connecticut.

Since it's been sitting most of it's life, maybe something made a home out of it.
It happened to a friends bike,, he doesn't ride much..... 2 years ago his mufflers had green rat poison pellets shooting out the back when he fired it up in the springtime.......last year it was pumpkin seeds shooting out the mufflers.

Run some seafoam thru it. Might get the clogs out of it
