michiganteddybear hehe, had that happen to me one day when a neighbors house was being watched by the police for some reason (which I forgot, they had enough bad shiat going on there who knows why they where there that time).. mind you, I am 3 houses away, and when it backfired, the cops all looked around looking for what caused it, with their hands on the grips of their weapons. luckily my wife was chattin with one of them and once they realized what happened, they all laughed

Bottom line, get a new AGM battery.

The old double-barrel shotgun . . . no worries... it was probably one of your exhaust pipe covers slapping from the shock, but who knows? That volume, though, is normal for a backfire on this bike. I hope you live in a neighborhood with a low crime rate, friendly neighbors, and a poorly funded SWAT team ( unlike my own ).

Everything looks and sounds good, started right up after that....even drove it to work.
I'm not sure what it was, but i'm sure it wasn't good.
