Bikes normally have vent/drain hoses for overflow and whatnots. Nore than likely, the hoses you see are them. Trace them to find out for sure. As for your bike, you might have to do a little carb tuning. But to start simple, run some cleaner through. Maybe you just have a little gunk in there. I also suggest if you do not have already, purchase a repair manual. It will help you troubleshoot in case you need to do a little work.

4 wheeler has sat for 3years. New carb diaphragm & idles fine. hit the throttle & it backfires & dies. Carb has been apart numerous times. Starts right back up. Not flooded.


Have you changed the fuel out, bad gas can cause this, also fuel lines and filter should be replaced as the ethanol eats the lines and filter.
Those hoses sound like the vents for the tank and carb.
When you replaced carb did you tighten the rubber boot that mounts the carb to the engine? if there is a crack in this boot it will suck air and cause this engine to stall,

My gsx600f runs great on warm up but when its all warmed up it starts to backfire & then dies...i had carb. cleaned,replaced plugs also air cleaner & changed oil please whats next to check?


I would look at the intake boots, make sure there are seated and look for degradation of the rubber. If you can spray some carb cleaner around the intakes and listen for an increase in RPM's which will identify a leak. If it is backfiring through the exhaust upon decelleration it would indicate a lean condition, or if it backfires through the airfilter upon acceleration it would also indicate a lean condition. both of which could be an intake leak.

I have a 2003 ttr 225, it is tough to start, when it does start it idles high, when i get into gear it has trouble going, when it does go it bogs and sometimes backfires.. drove today it stalled in second...


Remove, dissemble and clean the carb. Check the rubber diaphragm for cracks, pinholes and poor seal at the gasket. Install a new spark plug, clean the air filter. The high idle is caused by a lean fuel mixture. Outside air is entering the mix. Look at the rubber "O" ring on the carb joint. Check for cracks and hardening of the ring. Your carb will have a plug or a hose at the front edge of the carb joint. Check the plug / hose and clip. Check for cracks in the plug / hose and hardening. Check the entire length of the hose if a hose is present. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_43.gif

Intermittent problem. Truck ran fine one day and barely ran the next time I started it. Runs incredibly rough like it's missing but not like a consistently missfiring plug but missfiring on all plugs...


Check for sticking idle air control valve and stuck open EGR valve. Both are common causes for very rough engine operation due to fuel-air ratio being too far off. Also check for large vacuum leak such as from rubber hoses connecting PCV valve to intake. Feel around for squishy or oily rubber which would indicate a leaking hole in the rubber hoses.

88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.


If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.

Backfire Tecumseh Generator


To maybe convert your Flamethrower back to a generator, Make sure the fuel line is a good quality thick rubber material (like OEM )since it passes through the engine,HEAT is a issue, if it has been modified to steel, or it's thin rubber, it will overheat the fuel on its way to the carb and cause backfires after the engine warms up , ( vaporizing gas and pressure bypassing the jets flooding the engine) I use 1/4 inch Goodyear sold at Autozone , one of very few name brand quality parts you can get there. The other possible cause is carbon deposits built up on the leading edge of the valve not allowing the valve to close all the way, just clean the valve, it is caused by too lean or rich carb setting or clogged jets, if it is a newer style carb with a pink main jet then debris in this area will always cause backfire, check and make sure the old tiny O-ring on this jet is not still in the bottom of the shaft, people forget to pull them out all the time or give up trying to pull them out, I use a paper clip and bend the end 1/8 of a inch @ 90 degrees to fish hook it out of there, CLEAN THE SHAFT with carb cleaner and a Q-tip.... A Tecumseh engine will always backfire if the carb or airflow is not perfect and sealed tight !!!!!! it looks simple to rebuild the carb but you must take your time and look close, clean it very well, make sure the jet is SEATED properly and all tiny holes are clean, use guitar string not torch head cleaners as they will enlarge the holes and make your carb run rich.
