Angry Stratoliner is running bad

Hello guys. I have an 08 Stratoliner with 34000 miles. The bike just recently started to run bad. It would start and run great initially while cold but after its warmed up and I try to start it, it doesnt want to start, it takes 2 or 3 tries before it does. When it starts and as Im riding it, it runs horrible. Backfiring, poor acceleration, bad idling. Please, what can this problem be? I replaced the air filter, tried using fuel additives, but to no avail. SO I was thinkg it might be the ECU. I unplugged it, looked at it and and smelled the connection port and it has that burnt smell. Could this be my problem?

Thanks
