All I can say is this bike is a weapon . We rode for 120 kilo's (75 miles) and the bike was running better as the day wore on
( so was I ). Can't say enough about how brilliant this bike was. Ecept for back firing on long steep downhiils with the throttle off. This seems like an over rich condition with the throttle closed, as the bike was not popping but every 10-20 seconds it would backfire with one loud bang. Has anyone else had this happen and how did you fix.
Also is 2.5 wt fork oil good to use ( I weigh 220 lb).

(If you can't resolve it with the fuel srew, check the exhaust system for leaks, fuel + air = bang )
