I was riding my bike today on the 4 lane and I was doing about 80 85 mph for a solid 10 or 12 miles. I didnt let off the whole time. Then I came upto some traffic and let off the throttle and as soon as I did the bike back fired pretty hard and loud. Is this a problem, should I be worried. I recently removed a power commander from the bike, and havent reset my TPS yet. I appreciate any info anyone may offer. Thanks, Matt Tully

Could be the beginning of an intake seal leak! Easy job but tricky the first time! When i first found badweb. I was informed you must change the intake seals every 2 yrs.
But i don't know for sure.

You should change the SEAL,intake manifold PN 26995-86B every TWO YEARS if it is an everyday ride ...
Every FOUR YEARS if you have a COOLING FAN
KIT(S3/M2 PN Z0008.M or X1 PN Z0008.KA which have the same parts in the kit) ...
Head "HEAT" does a number on these seals ...
MAY THE LONG LASTING BUELL BE WITH YOU !!!

when my x1 was backfiring bad it was due to a crack in the header. Take a look at that.

RIGHT ON !!!
If you do not install the exhaust system correctly it will self destruct and you must PREVENTIVE MAIMTENANCE it event then ...
If you do not use GASKET,exhaust port PN 17048-98 they will leak and not stay tight ...
