I have an 07 strert bob, with efi. The bike has appx. 45k, i was out riding today and started riding a little rough. During idol at traffic lights it would back fire. When i was finally able to stop, there was a smell of fuel. Also had a loss of power, was still running byt does not have the normal power. It was definitely burning more fuel then normal. Any suggestion? I checked the air filter it was clean and left the cover off until i arrived home, seemed to run a little better without the cover. Any suggestions????

Not sure just bought it last month. Was running great, then out of no where started backfiring and spuddering. Does that sound like the fuel filter?

I think there was a fuel filter recall for the '07 models. The filter was cracking causing a loss of fuel pressure. That should have been done already tho.

Thanks for your response. I did a search on the VIN, and it said all recalls have been performed.

UPDATE!!!
Noticed today, spark plug wire must have vibrated off. Reconnected and all is good.

You should still Drain the tank check for water or rust and check or change the fuel filter. Maybe run some Seafoam thru it to so you know where your at . You don't want to get Stranded out on the Road .
