My 500 started acting funny the other day when I would start it. It would rev up to about 3000rpm for a second and then settle down, miss, backfire, miss, backfire, and shut down. I am getting a code 26 and have found the bolt head broken off at the intake. I would imagine the broken bolt is letting air in and causing the backfire, but what would the code 26 have to do with this? It says vehicle speed sensor, what the heck is that?

HA! It looked broken off when the tank was still on it. It is just gone and the other side is loose and the gasket has shifted. Can't say that I have been too pleased with this machine. Faded camo plastic, broken wires in the front wire loom all the time. Now this. Oh well, it rides like no other, that's for sure.
