The next big issue...

As always... here it comes

Ok... took the bike out for spin 2 last night and everything went for the worst...

my can that is zip tied on fell off when i pulled off the curb..(bracket on order)
when i took off my bike had NO power... it would go about 15 mph and that was it
a block or so later it would slowly pick up speed but im talking like 1988 beat up ford escort speed.
then i pull back up to the house and i notice flashing lights behind me...
not those kind... i was spitting fire, then the guy that was riding behind me tells me my bike was throwing flames the whole time.. :eh:
and it was backfiring like crazy...

did i bend some valves? or what the ?

as always im open to all input and I will be patiently waiting for the good word from the Experts over at Motorcycles Unlimited.

i had the same problem with mine...it was from injectors being clogged up and they stayed wide open and you could smell raw fuel coming out the exhaust. fire and all also like yours. we tried all kinds of to get it to work, but patrick helped out, and it runs like a champ again.
