    anyone ever heard this sound?

    I'm installing a new engine in my 03 gp800r. I noticed a wierd sound when I rotate the drive shaft. I thinks it's my reeds. Is this normal? Sounds like it's only coming from the PTO carb.

    sounds to me like that's just air coming out probably into the spark plug holes. Stick your plugs back in and see if it dissapears.

    I've never hear that before but the only thing capable of making that noise would be something flapping really fast like a reed. Same principal as a duck call. Pretty sure it shouldn't be making that noise. I'd check the reeds just to be safe. Even pull them out

    Yeah it sounds like a duck call! I wounder if it's because I replaced one set of reeds. Not sure if this is the new set or the old. I was thinking the reeds might be dry causing the reeds to not seal. Maybe spray some 2stroke oil down the throat of the carb to see if lubing the reeds makes it go away. I hate to take the carbs off but if I have to, I will.

    I checked the reeds and all are fine. Lubed them with 2stroke oil and used a gasket sealer on the base gasket for the carbs and it still honks! A friend of mine said he's heard that honking sound on other 2 strokes and it's normal. Idkw

    I've also heard it on several that I've overhauled. I'd say just a thing that happens sometimes under the right circumstances.
