I have a 2005 Predator 500. Have been riding every weekend with no problems. Went riding yesterday and it ran fine, washed it fired it up and loaded it on the trailer. Went to unload it this morning and it back fires out the exhaust. With the choke on, it backfires, without the choke, it just turnes over and doesn't start.. I know its getting spark as it backfires and I know its getting fuel because I smell gas from the air cleaner. Does any have any suggestion. I hate to take to the dealer. Thanks

possibly the coil is faulty. like it fires every other compression stroke? Ohm the coil. Get yourself a book and save you bunch of money. I had this happen to my buddys Predator. hope this helps.
