Honda Hornet 600's surprise backfire

MCN, 08 September 2011 16:22

Yesterday, when I went to start up my 1998 Honda Hornet 600, I got a massive backfire. It’s never happened before and I’m wondering if it’s anything to worry about (damaging valves, etc)? The bike ran fine afterwards, in fact it felt smoother. But I don’t know if that’s because I have changed the oil or it’s just in my ...
