If it is backfiring on deacceleration you have a fuel mixture problem and need to "sync" the carbs.
Sync Pro carb tuner works well. This is a precise four channel vacuum indicator designed specifically for intake synchronization of engines with multiple carburetors or throttle bodies.
Also, if you have not done so, check your plug wires for defects and resistors, if your wires have them.
Good luck, hope this helps.

After battery in my 2001 jimmy manual 5 speed battery was run low till almost dead twice in 24 hour period, due to leaving key on too long while not running, it started after using jumper cables both...

The reset rate for vehicle computers vary by manufacturer, but 50-100 miles sounds good for the relearning process. As with the RPM's climbing unexpectedly, as a precaution I would look for a vacuum leak under your hood... it will be a hissing sound around some rubber hoses, as this can cause the RPM's to fluctuate and possibly give check engine light codes.

New spark plugs turn black after going twenty miles

Make sure the air filter is clean (& not over oiled if sponge type)
Make sure that the pilot screws on #1 & #3 are 2 turns out and #2 is 2.25 turns out
Try turning 1/8 of a turn at a time
Also change to a softer plug - NGK DPR7EA-9 or equivalent as these stay hotter to burn more carbon off

Hi the battery is flat on my speed triple its

hi might be able to help,if the bike has been stood for a while and the battery is flat,you will need to either slow charge the battery(if it will accept a charge) or replace it,jumping the battery will only give the battery a surface charge and will not be adequate to run all of your electronics effectively,this may be why the engine management light is staying in,hope this helps..cheers

Buyinf question/maintance costs

All bikes are expensive to service. The Legend is easy to work on so buy a Haynes manual and order OEM parts from dealers or Bike Bandit. You might have an ignition coil or fork seal to go bad. I've had my Legend for 9 years and have had one of each. Every 2 years change the hydraulic fluid for the brakes and clutch. If you use fully synthetic oil in the engine it will last 6,000 miles or 1 year as will the oil filter. Replacing spark plugs is difficult but they last a long, long time. Valves are shim type and rarely need to be reshimmed. If you replace the front sprocket you will need a new gasket for the sprocket cover. Trust me on that. Good luck and ride safe.
