Starts popping and I get an occasional fireball out the pipe. I checked the coil and the rectifier both of which are working fine and I put in new plugs in before the test and then swithced them to make sure it wasn't a bad plug. Any ideas? Maybe a valve issue? I think I'd do a compression test now. That might help steer you toward a solution.,

2001 1200 sportster cranks and backfires, carb and fuel good, could it be crank sensor?

Wasted spark system. If fuel and electrical is all good/correct it is often the case in these symptoms that motor cycle spark plugs that although looking good and firing outside of the engine are breaking down and will not fire under compression pressures on a power stroke but will fire unburned fuel on the unpressurized exhaust stroke when the plug again fires in a wasted spark ignition system and when so firing the result is a backfire, usually quite loud.

backfiring through the carb sound like a timing issue, odd though, should me an automatic adjustment, may have slipped a tooth on the cam witch may indicate a bad timing chain or chain tensioner/guide, May also be a serious carb adjustment is required.

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

backfire can come out carb or exhaust--could be runnin to rich-is the float level set rite-jets may be wrong too--1st chec spark plug quality-wires-coil etc for correct fire--but since it kiks in then probly the high speed jet is fine

Had carbs rebuilt on my 1975 Yamaha Xs 650 now the left side cylnder fires infrequently and backfires loudly with new plugs. could this be a timing issue?

If it's just one cyl, then I doubt its timing.
Check to make sure the carb boof is tight and not leaking
also check any vacuum hoses.

My 1400 intruder pops and back fires

I think maddogcycle is right. One cylinder is running rich and the other running lean. It seems as though they have not been balanced properly and the mixture not accurately adjusted. The settings on these carburettors are critical and must be adjusted with the proper gauges. I'd advise you to have the carbs cleaned and adjusted and tuned to the engine for balance of inducted air flow and fuel/air ratio (mixture)

My 84 f350 is having fuel and air problem. It ran fair but it would backfire when i let off the accelator,so I had the carb rebuilt that made the backfiring worse. So now I have replaced the carb mounting...

It seems that you have a vaccuum leak around the intake or carb, Check all hoses for good connections. You can spray carb. and choke cleaner around the intake and carb whole it is running and if the engine rise and lowers. you have a leak

Craftsman Edger Pops while running

Hi you have your float set about right but your air gap should be at .010 , The other thing you can check is wether the flywheel key is partly sheered i have seen this a number of times and they still run.
