Well i've owned my Vstar 250 for like 4 or 5 months now and all i've mod'd on it is the back sprocket to a 40... and i've been reasonably happy with it ... but suddenly now when i run it for along while and get it good and hot then turn it off (say to get gas) and Start it back up ... it tends to Backfire on the First turn of the engine ... never while its running or idling or any other time ... just when you start it when its hot .... now from what i understand backfiring is the collection of gas in the exaust pipe that then blows up in the pipe... My Question is ... what do you guys think may be causing this. i haven't had my valves set since i bought it ...and its got 3500 miles on it ... i thought that might have something to do with it ... and also ... it seems like it got a good bit louder ... guess the backfiring has kinda moved some stuff out of the way in the exaust ..... i think there's like some kinda Cloth in there isn't it?
