I have a #2. I read about others trying out a 4 but it slowed turn-in too much.

It's a pretty drastic change in the A/F ratio. It will idle horribly (if at all) and it will make a rattling sound. Power above idle will be way down.

Over-tightening probably wouldn't cause a noise. I've found over-tightened chains make no noise, and in fact the bike runs great, right up until the chain snaps and you lose the motor. Any noise you...

I swore off all K&N filters after I had one fail on my Honda, fortunately at low speed and I kept it up. It wasn’t covered in the recall. Not worth your life, get something reliable.
