Is editing / changing item title kills all the backlinks? since the item name changes so does the url?

Nope, you are safe. Title does not matter, number at the end does, which never changes.

Note that it will wipe out all the likes / shares on the item description page.

And to continue this … Even if you put back your original item title, the likes & shares will still be wiped :)

And to continue this, if your item has a good ranking in search results for a specific keywords, it may affect it too.

I did it once and after google indexed it with new title, my sales dropped for 2 weeks. Then changed it back to its original title and my sales were back again…

Of course this is for items that has good ranking in google search results :)
