I just recently made some modifications to the bike which include, V&H
, jet kit and ignition module. Bike is running awesome and there was a noticible increase in power, so I'm really happy. Tuned the carb
to the settings suggested by Baron for those modifications and seems to be pretty close to where I want to be.
My only complaint is the occasional backfire/afterfire within a second of two of shutting the bike off. I've search previous threads for this and it sounds like some people have fixed this by slowing the idle or making adjustments to the carb. My thoughts are that it's running a little rich and after the bike is shut off there is some unburnt fuel that makes it way to the hot exhaust pipes and ignites. My first instinct is to adjust the PMS
to lean it out a little bit.
Am I on the right track? All suggestions welcome. I will eventually bring it to a shop that has a dyno
and air/fuel analyzer to get it as close to "perfect" as possible, but until then I like giving it a try myself. Thanks in advance, Pat
