I sure hope not. :wink:

I get the occasional backfire on mine after doing the stock exhaust pipe mod. But unless you really try to make it a bad one, you won't hurt it.

I have heard some bikes that sounded like the front line of a battle zone on decel and they seem to keep on ticking.

removing the PAIR valve stopped the decel backfires for me, now i get a very nice rumble on decel.

I have the PAIR system removed. The bike runs and sounds great. The plugs look fine. Mech. says they are right on the color they should be. We thought it might be a small exhaust leak. He took pipes off and checked the gaskets he replaced when he mounted them and then remounted them and tightened everything down. Couldn't detect a leak.

When it does backfire, it's a pretty loud single ker-pop.

Mine will backfire from time to time and it still makes the fart in the can noise, but the plugs look great and I don't mind.
