Capt. Kurt I use non ethonal and run sea foan in my tank every couple of months.. my 07 vtx 1300 r quit backfiring. Replace all 3 of the small hoses that come off the petcock . Just to be on the safe side i bought all new hoses for the bike.. kept all the old hoses and take them with me for my long rides just knowing if i blow 1 i have an extra in the bags

Bubblechaser Good riding to you sir. I have a 2007 vtx1300c that had decel back firing problems. I corrected the problem by de-smogging the bike.Not only did it clear the backfire but the bike runs fantastically better. There are several forums here on it. You may consider this option. Good luck and ride safe.

Hans&Feet You probably have an open vacuum hose at petcock.
Two "Tee" fittings, several hoses, one to PAIR valve if you have it.
Intake manifold is vacuum source.

Vacuum Hoses also crack on the interior causing vacuum leaks.

You can read Eurodude adventures because he pulled a vacuum hose off.
