What causes a backfire when rolling-off the throttle in third or fourth gear, usually around 60MPH? Not hard to repeat.

2000 LT 132,000 miles.
2002 motor 40,000 miles.
Less than 1,000 miles are mine. Only had bike since late July.
New fuel filter and hoses, TPS, oil and filter.
Mileage sucks too. 30-35MPG.

Thanks.

With that kind of mileage I would replace the O2 sensor. Unless you spend all your time at 7,000 RPM or pull a trailer in a head wind your mileage should be well above 42 MPG.

That's what I got from this forum about the mileage. Part came in last week. Anything I need to watch out for? I bought the Bosch universal replacement from Beemer Boneyard.

If it has a round four pin connector it should be install and play.
