Engine skipping & popping

When I'm slowly going up through the gears or if I am downshifting, Bike does some skipping and popping not smooth running at all. Some one removed the baffles on the stock pipes, If there is nothing to give it backpresure, could this no baffles be causing the skip and pop?

    I just bought a used 2004 VL 1500LC intruder, carbureted. It has Vance and Hines Longshots on it, the baffles have been taken out, the pipes look new, the Bike has 2087 total miles and on it and it llooks it as well. Problem is I have to keep the choke on it to get it to run smooth. After it thoroughly warms up it runs better with the choke off, I took out the plugs they are very light grey to powder white. The bike was sold new in May 2004 so the low miles may well indicate a lot of setting in the garage, I bought it from an estate sale, it starts very quickly and runs ok with the choke on until it warms a while then it idles too fast. I have orders a set of quite V&H baffles for it - hoping the backpressure will help with the overly lean running. My questions: should I flush out the fuel system, change the filter, drain the carbs, etc or do you think the backpressure will be enough. It does seem to surge quite a bit while running at a steady speed. Any ideas would be appreciated. Ron - Flagler county, FL

Sounds like a lean out condition... pull plugs and look at them if there white and sooty its to lean.... jet it up or replace baffles..i think your on the right track with backpressure theory!

Bike engine stopped


This problem may have many reason but you can try one of the solutions, when suddenly engine stops and kick rod is going smooth without resistance try push and start by directly in 2nd gear or 1st gear and after it starts keep the engine running by giving small revs for a min....

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

I have had my 2005 Suzuki boulevard twice now, when I came to a stop and was in 3 or 4th gear, it would not shift back down or into neutral, it seemed to be stuck in higher gear.....and it was when I had...


This does happen on many other bikes; the shifter pawls do not mesh smoothly at low RPMs. Simply let your clutch out partially to "bump" the pawls and gears into better alignment, then engage it again, and it should be much easier to downshift when at a stop.

Concerning gear shifting. I have an 86 VT500. I bought it with 14000 miles on it and have ridden about 600 miles of my own since. Downshifting from neutral into first (when prepping to move) it is rough...


Don't shift from neutral into first until the engine is at idle or just above idle. NEVER force the shift lever. The shift forks engage into "slider" gears and the dogs on the sliders must mesh into the side of the gear you are shifting into. The "clunk" you hear is the slider engaging a gear that is not moving at the moment. The higher the revs, the louder the clunk. The diagram shows the slider in neutral. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Hardly start; skips badly at low rpm; smooths out some after 3000


I had a similar problem and traced it to the hole in the gas cap was rusted shut so that the engine was starved for gas. I drilled a small hole in the gas cap and it runs like new. Sorry-no new gas caps are available through the Honda dealer as the bike is so old.

Loud Downshift


My 2004 Sporty shift pedal is "notchy" especially when cold (allow 20-30 sec. of idle after starting) to allow time for oil to wet the shift forks and gear assemblies before shifting into first driving off. Also when down shifting, I usually do NOT use engine/trans gear braking on the street to save wear and tear on the clutch and running gear...brake pads are a lot easier (and cheaper) to replace over the long haul
