My 09 is only about a month old. Haven't use it much at high speeds but when I have it hestiated and sputtered like there was a governor holding it back. I can believe that and don't have much need to go that fast so no big deal but then it backfires afterwords which is bothersome. Is it limited and should it backfire under any circumstances?

I just installed the meter package. That went fine. Now I'll have a little more data when it happens again.

I can not recall a backfire, but i dont think it is anything to be alarmed about. All BR's have a rev limiter. Mine kicks in between 40-42 mph. Mine does not lose power, just limits it.

How long has your foot been “on” the throttle when you note the backfire? For cost reasons it’s easier to shut off spark rather than spark / fuel. Leave your foot on the throttle when the rev limiter is active and fuel could build up in the combustion chamber. This make for favorable conditions for a backfire when spark returns.
In short, when she cuts out, back off! :twocents:
