Hi Fellas,I'm a new RE owner, and this is my first post. I'm glad to be a part of the club, and I love the bike. I have a 2009 Military (C5 / UCE / EFI). The bike has approximately 4300 miles on it, and I've only had a few minor problems: bad battery (twice), replaced chain at 4000 miles, and now I'm having a performance issue.The bike misfires and backfires. Sometimes it is REALLY bad. I worried that I wouldn't make it to my house 2 miles away a couple of days ago. Sometimes it doesn't happen at all.
Whoa!! Major problem. The reason I started the bike smells like it is burning very rich is that the fuel tank is actually leaking gas! Near the rear bolts on the left side where there is a welded seam, gas is oozing from the tank.I assume that something from the tank actually broke lose and made it into the gas line a few days back when the engine was running at its worst. The performance of the engine has been great for the past two days.I guess this calls for a trip to the dealer in the morning.Mance
Thanks for the note.Yes, I forgot to mention that I changed the spark plug. Replaced with stock equivalent. I don't have any experience looking at plugs to tell if the bike is running lean or rich, so I can't say much about how the old plug looked.

You should change your riding habits. Ride more and longer.
Should also install a battery tender to keep it charged up if you can't ride it for long distances. Cost is generally less than 30 bucks and will eliminate lots of problems.
