ok so i fired up my wing today after work, took it for a quick run down the block and noticed that i have a loud rapping sound when i let the clutch out in first gear. this noise also can be heard when i give it gas in second and third but is most noticable in first. when i go to start off it will lag and cut out unless i have my rpm's at around 3,000. any advice would be great thanks.

It sounds like fuel problem, one cylinder not running right ( knocking sound ) no power. try adding sea-foam to clear the jets.

Pull your plugs and check them for indications. Sounds like one cylinder is not firing. Variety of causes but the most common are: stuck carb float that is not letting fuel in the bowl or fouled plug that won't fire.

Some of the older Wings had a bit of a problem with the carb slides sticking. That could also cause your problem.
