I don't see any reason why an Elefant would be more prone to an intake fire than any other motorcycle.
The carbs say Mikuni on them, if that helps. Also it had pods on it, but not K&N. Maybe be time for an upgrade on that. I'm taking the carb apart now to soak, anything to note on this. Thanks Again...Rob
