    I have a C-90T and had cobra longshots put on and it backfired like crazey, than I did some research and baught a" Bully" computer, specifacally programed for the C-90T and with a little twixing I stopped the backfiring, This computer is programmable and I had to further adj the computer , but it did fix the problem , so it definatly was an air fuel thing going on after the new pipes were installed.

    Mine's an '06 with Cobra pipes - Power Commander installed. Backfires and gargles when downshifting or letting off the throttle. One suggestion I heard was to block the emissions control off.

Backfiring means you have an air leak or a lean mixture. Look for leaks at the header pipes or perhaps a crack in the exhaust.
Cold air getting into the exhaust is usually what causes the backfire noise.
You may have a lean engine running situation but the bike would have other issues besides the backfire.
Let me know if you are having any other issues or if it just the backfire.

The popping sound is indicative of the Suzuki C90 line. To minimize the popping noises, perform the pair valve removal and switch to NGK Iridium spark plugs. Also, look into a Stage III kit for your bike and find a fuel map that best suits your needs. It won't eliminate all of the popping, but it will get rid of about 95% of it.

I have a C90T with all the same specs and even with the Bully you can get some backfiring. The only way I was almost totally able to stop the back firing is to complete the pair value modification (block or remove). Google 'Mocc's place'. He has detailed instructions on how to complete the mod. Very easy and makes all the difference in the world (even if you do not have the bully or pipe mods).

Setting idle


If you have carbs:

http://www.bikebandit.com/2005-suzuki-boulevard-c90-vl1500-carburetor/o/m147639sch503698


Part #60 adjusts both carbs' idle speed evenly.

If you have throttle bodies:

http://www.bikebandit.com/2005-suzuki-boulevard-c90-vl1500-throttle-body/o/m147639sch506971

Part # 14 should adjust the idle speed on both.

Suzuki C50 Boulevard (4k miles) backfires during deceleration when under pressure. (the clutch handle is not pulled or it has just released.) It really gives one loud POP! The rest is the usual sounds of...


Backfiring when the throttle is closed shows a lean mixture. Either you, or your mechanic should take a look at the mixture, and there's a 99% chance that that was the cause of your problem :)

Backfires


Hi ......... sounds like the petrol is igniting in the pipe, could be valve needs reground (carryout a compression check), leak in the exhaust system (all gaskets & joints good ?). What colour is the spark plug ? Have you recently put a new pipe, filter or re jetted the bike ?
