I was just thinking about just riding until the problem become an everyday thing and take it to the dealer. If there are problems with the valve, is this something that I can hold off or is it something that will damage the engine or other components?

Don't take this as gospel, but if the problem has gone don't read more into it. Has all the suggested servicing been done by a "competent" mechanic? If so, the engine will settle with use and valves will need to be adjusted, but that is life for motorcyclist. I would say continue to ride like you stole it and if something comes up then find you a mechanic you like and you can trust.

Thanks for the suggestion. The suggested servicing has been done, so I think I'm going to just ride until the next major service and get these things looked into then like you said.
So far, I have never had any starting issue incidents.

Thanks!

i just experienced this today with mine, exactly as you described. i'm going to do the same and wait to see if it becomes a regular problem. that will make it easier to diagnose anyway.

do me a favor and keep us posted and i'll do the same if the problem becomes worse.

Will do. It may take some time but I do want to share the "solution"

Unlikely to be the fuel filter from what you say. Possibly running a bit lean or could be throttle position sensor. Duc dealer should be able to run diagnostic check for you to rule out any electronics but this doesn't sound a major issue if it only happens once in a while.

I have a 2012 Monster 1100EVO and it does it EVERYDAY!!! I hate to actually say this but, this bike is the biggest POS I have ever owned. Just recently my front brakes have zero brake pressure. Anyone have thier duc backfire through the throttle bodies? Mine does it all the time. DUc dealer says there is nothing wrong with the bike. Been to two differant dealers too. Anyone want to buy a lightly used EVO?

My 2013 did the same exact thing, but then would idle really high after riding for a few minutes. There was a split in one of the vacuum lines connecting to one of the throttle bodies. Once this was replaced, everything has been great, no more surging at low speeds either.

could the backfire be due to poorly adjusted timing belts?
