I recently purchased (2 weeks ago) a 2003 Fat Boy Anniversary. It has 2700 miles. It looks better than new. Beautiful Orange Pearl paint and some extra chrome. Also been lowered. With only 2700 miles in 10 years, this thing has been doing some serious setting around. I would ass-u-me that the Harley dealership I purchased it from would insure that it is in perfect running condition. However, Sometimes when I start it it'll back fire, If I baby it, it runs fine, except for some back firing now and then. If I lay into it a little more it feels like the clutch is slipping or it's " floating " and just starts missing very noticeably. As far as I know the only changes to the engine are the Screamin Eagle exhaust. I have only run about 3 gallons of gas through it and added some Sea Foam gasoline addative. It came with no warranty so I opt'd for 2 years extended warranty which covers the running gear and electrical system. Not sure if it will cover cleaning of the carbs and not really sure if that's the problem. I'm going to take a look at the plugs today and change them regardless of how they look. Just wondering if taking the air cleaner off and spraying some carb cleaner into the carbs would help at all. Any thoughts on what the problem might be or any suggestions ? Thanks .. I appreciate your thoughts..
