Re: Backfire on startup
**As a side note, I observed something worth sharing during the plug change. I wuld recommend heartily that befor you pull the plug from the deep recess, you tip the bike to that side for a few seconds. It may just be an issue in the soggy Northwest, but that socket could hold alot of water that you would be dumping right into your cylander if you don't drain it off first.**
I read a tip that suggested blowing compressed air in before removing the plugs in case you've caught some sand or small rocks. Imagine letting something like that fall into the cylinder, ouch!!
