My 05 vt1100c2 backfires on deceleration, usually when I have been on the throttle hard, and back it off fast, like when I have to go around someone quick and immediately back down. Around the 60-mph DOWNWARD decel, it will do a quick backfire and be done with it.
I took it to my local Honda guys who said that it wouldn't hurt the bike since it was occasional and not constant. Told me to quit riding it like I stole it. . .
Love those guys.
I'll track this thread to see what you report. Good luck.
Oh, what is all this "plugging" stuff that you are talking about? Are you restricting intake? I'll do a search to see what this is all about.
I agree with you on the stock pipes. I sold the god-awful LOUD pipes that were on this bike and went back to stock. Didn't mess with the baffles or the jets.
