After washing the bike today I was running the engine to get it hot so it would dry. After it got warm I was playing with the throttle and whacking it open (I like the sound..hehe..) and since it was idling and not really hot yet it kicked back through the carb. WOW was that loud! Sounded like a regular backfire but I could hear it and feel it. All of the water on the seat and sides of the air box jumped right off! I haven't looked at my filter yet, I hope it's still in one piece. OK I had nothing important to say, just wanted to babble a bit..
