My buddy has a 2110, its starting to pop thru the exhaust ALOT at a sustained speed like on the highway. What would cause this? There's about 1500 mi. on the engine, maybe it needs a valve adjustment?

Thanks for all the links and replies. I had planned on spending $400.-$500 for a "good" starter. I'm leaning towards a 5 string, I do love that bluegrass sound.
