Hey there!

While enjoying a nice ride last night, my bike emitted a loud backfire that scared the crap out of me. Only 7k miles on it. Completely stock. Synthetic oil, had a valve adj. at 4k miles. Didn't do it again.

are fuel injected bikes supposed to do this? Any ideas why it happened?
Thanks!
Adrian

My C50 seldom backfires, but when it does........I know that it's time for a dose of injector cleaner.

Mine has backfired a few times...and I have no PAIR. Is Fuel Injector cleaning common. I do it on my car but I guess the thought never occurred to use it in the bike.

Fuel injectors become clogged, particularly near the tip so I would add some cleaner from time to time. :wink:

If your bike has Fi the backfire may be from raving you bike at a stop light so you can hear the pipes. when i picked up my C50T I was raving it up and the mechanic at the dealer said with FI raving it all the time like that will couse it to backfire. And not makeing fun of the HD but he said its not a HD you dont have to keep it running.
