So I go out to start the ol shovel this morning, and it ain't havin none of that. It wants to stay in the shop today I guess. Kick er over a few times and it just only runs for a few seconds then dies. So I gives it some more gas and boom!!! She backfires outta the carb and sets the air filter on fire!!!!! Needless to say, at this time I'm shittin bricks! get some tools and get the hot as fuck air cleaner cover off and put out the fire. I'll be taking the carb off and rippin it apart to check for damage now. Coulda been way worse, coulda been way better too!
I still love this bike no matter what!!!!
