Is there a reset procedure other than disconnecting the battery ? On my former 690 KTM it was a 15 minute reset at tickover from cold. The Triumph is something similar and I think I read somewhere that my former NC700X had a similar procedure.

I am not sure but I just got off the phone with my dealer. He informed me that Honda is aware of this problem and is working on a solution for it. They said it should not cause any harm to the bike. So now I play the waiting game....

Not that I'm aware of however it's only a matter of using the supplied Allen key under the seat to remove the "Tool Box" and removing the neg terminal on the battery for 1 min. Put everything back together and it should be good to go. I was having heaps of trouble with the backfiring and crap starting and since doing this it's never happened since, was quite surprise how well it worked for such a simple fix.

Dealer asked me to call Honda Customer Relations as well to explain what the issue was. He said he does the blip thing too even though he has a slipper clutch.... that is a harder habit to break than smoking haha

Mine does the same thing, it kind of @"belches/burps" itself out.

There will be a sotftware update at some stage to sort out the little issues out

I agree. I have no issues with the bike other than that and some personal preference issues. Other than that, I think Honda did extremely well with it.

Mine did this the first time today after sitting for the first time for 3 days.
I have just over 1600 miles on it.
It backfired when I started it which was the first time ever, then it did it again when I shut it off after riding it.

Odd.

my bike does exactly the same and has since I've had it

I had a major starting issue with the temp and tilt sensors failing

these were replaced taking over a week

it starts okay 95% of the time now

but with the spokes corroding after 4 months of summer riding despite constant cleaning and the crap heated grips and back fires I cant do with the hassle of having it off the road in the summer.

a dealer in our region has let slip they are getting quite a few problems with the AFI

I am intending to trade it in next spring for another triumph 800XC

pity that as its a brilliant bike to ride and mega fun but shockingly appalling build quality for a Honda absolutely shocking

The troubles annoying you will be fixed long before next spring.

A solution is reportedly coming for the grip heaters.

The spokes are a batch issue affecting early bikes, most owners haven't had the issue. 10,000 km on mine and it still looks new. Have the dealer replace your wheels.

Either disconnect your battery or have your dealer do a factory reset using the computer and see if that solves your backfiring issue.
