So this backfiring while starting thing...
I noticed just recently my bike will backfire LOUDLY, like gunshot loud. I keep seeing older archive posts about a maintenance free AGM battery fixing this problem. Makes sense though. I have only had the bike since May 2012. The first 440 miles I put on it I didn't have this problem. For the last 90 miles, first every now and then it back fired, put in some fuel cleaner and it went away. Now it back fires every time pretty much. Since the guy who sold it to me said he had the carbs rebuilt, the plugs and wires changed.... it has to be the Walmart looking battery. Seems like the fuel air mixture is perfect the rest of the time so this is what I will invest in first.... eventually. Any other thoughts?
Pretty much bone stock, un-moded
as far as I know.
