Does your V "burp" periodically?

I have noticed a few times that my 2010 V seems to "burp", for lack of a better term. Almost like a backfire, or like a problem with the EFI mapping. Usually happens when at idle and I give it a little gas. Is mine the only one doing that? It only has happened a handful of times.

Unburnt fuel gets fed air thru a PAIR valve causing the "burp".

All EFI bikes do it.

Swap to loud pipes and you get a pop not a burp.

Nothing abnormal.

Couple of other things to mention...

My C50 mades burbly wet fart sounds instead of burps

The GW that I see you own have an amazing ignition and timing system that pretty well eliminates those quirks. Anti knock sensors and a KILLER 1st gear!

If my bike made a wet fart sound I think I would have to trade it in.

Funny, I just came off the C50. It was a great bike. Never had a lick of trouble with it. The Versys is so much more fun though

My bike has ~19K miles. It's stock and I don't remember it ever backfiring. I know the guys that replaced their mufflers complain about backfires, but I don't remember this being a common problem with stock setups.

Same here, except I don't hear it when I'm wearing earplugs. It worried me when I first heard it, but the engine ran fine and I didn't notice anything wrong. Figured it was just a parallel twin thing.
