Fuel system running rich

Sounds more like it's running lean. Have you checked fuel pressure at the rail? Could be the filter. Also try pulling the vacuum line off the regulator to see if the diaphragm is split and leaking fuel into the manifold.

My Liana got a problem of Back fire I changed ignition coil first then i Change their complete head but problem remain same?

Back fire back to where, the intake or exhaust.
intake backfire is a pop sound, not too loud, and is bad timing.
exh backfire means, fuel plus air is in the exh.
and explodes with a loud report , we call it muffler explosing to help
with clear meaning.... in this latter example
you have a bad running motor (rich as pig) a dead CAT and exhuast air leak
all at the same time.

05 acura tl had both heads replaced and the rear bank is running very rich

since you have a cherry red catalyst surely you have a clogged cat and if you do emission test surely is going to indicate the catalyst. now if the one of the cylinder heads is running rich just confirm whether you have any injector with a malfunction and instead spraying the fuel is pouring the fuel and cause fuel to go through exhaust not burnt and possible that is the reason which damaged the cat.

Rough idle and back firing at idle speed

Sounds like it is running rich, and needs timing checked. I would check the fuel pressure regulator, and the fuel lines leading up to it. If you are throwing an engine code check that out as well. Let me know. THanks.

Back firing & cutting out

If a stock intruder is running rich it must have a restriction in the air filter or a problem with the carbs. These bike are always way too lean from the factory. Check to make sure the filters are not plugged up. Also if it is truly rich it will start and run well without the choke on. You may have inricheners that need adjusted.

Back firing

what do you mean stupid? 87 89 90whatever unless you got some serious mods you shouldn't really notice that much difference in the performance between redily available octanes in pump gas. more likely a coincedence. timing; rich fuel mix; jets in carbs among other things can cause back firing. run the tank off or drain into yer mower and put in summpin else if it gets right again blame it on the gas if not the GAS didn't break it somthin else just got screwy good luck bro
