    Just a question.
    Sometimes when I start my bike it will pop like a gun shot. It doesn't do it all the time. When it does the engine light comes on and goes back out. I have tried checking for any codes, but nothing comes up. Thing is it only does it once in awhile.
    The bike is an 04 Heritage with a stage one up grade. A/C and S/E slip ons and no tuner.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks
    Duane

    How many miles on it? And is it a backfire through the Air Cleaner or exhaust?

    It back fires through the exhaust. It never use to do it and only ever so often now.
    Would a fueler help that much?

    You really should finish the stage 1 by adding a fueler. Yes, it will help tremendously. Your bike will thank you for it. Get you a TFI. Forum members get a discount and so do Vets. You'll be glad you did.
