    have a flat spot between 5 and 6 thousand rpm when pulling need to find a diagram for the vacuum hoses on where they all run to . anything I have found has at least three different diagrams . hopefully it will take it out of my bike. thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, I would suspect an airleak on the airfilter box, most likely the seal between the air filter bottom housing to the mouth of the carb. Might as well check for a vacuum leak on the rubber coupling from the carb to the intake manifolds. Pls check for craks on the coupling wall. It would also be worth your time to check the mating of the rubber coupling to the carb as well as the clamps.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    It is not a valve problem.

Why when I am riding my motorcycle and I pull the Clutch to gear down my motorcycle it cut off and take long to start back.

Are you saying that when you put the bike into gear to pull away from standing, the engine cuts out? If so, then check your side stand switch. It is there to cut the engine out if you try to ride off with your stand down. Your stand may be up but the switch may be telling the engine it is down.

4 wheeler backfire on start

incorrect air fuel mixture or a leak check for damage to the intake boot or airbox

i need to know more about how its running at low mid and high rpm to help you troubleshoot and you need to check for leaks especiely the intake boot if the intake boot is leaking that will need to be fixed before running the bike asumeing that is ok or fixed run the bike listen to it at idle standing is it surgeing with a good fast acceleration off the line with you siting on the quad ? or just realy rough ticking over with little guts off the line ?

midrange rideing how does it feel is there a bwarrr noise as u accelorate hard or does the engine roar up fast

is it reaching a good top end with good pulling power or poor pulling power

are the backfires constant or mainly whyle slowing down from high revs

if all are effected but there are no leaks then it may be float / fuel level that needs ajustment fuel level in ur float bowel effects all stages of rpm low mid and high

A rich problem gets worse as the engine heats up.

A lean problem gets better as the engine heats up.

hope this helps if u dont fix it your self first try and do them little rpm backfire tests for me itl tell me a lot

Recently went for a ride and everything was good. Made a stop, when I came out bike wouldnt start. turning the key everything was normal, rpm gauge spiked, lights turned on, fuel pump was heard. Went to...

Did you leave your motorcycle in gear when you turned it off? It sounds like the side stand safety switch is keeping the bike turned off. If my Suzuki is running and I pull in the clutch, with out raising the side stand, and I place the bike in gear with the side stand down, it will immediately shut off. The cycle is set up that way so you will not drive with your stand down and go out of control when you take your first left turn. If your cycle is not in neutral and your side stand is down, that would cause the condition you describe. If that is not the case start by inspecting the side stand safety switch and the clutch safety switch for proper operation.

Engine cuts out with clutch engaged.

idle adjust?
there SHOULD be an adjuster under the seat or gastank within easy reach. Clockwise to increase rpm, ccl to decrease rpm. idle around 1400rpm when engine is at normal operating temp. Good luck!

Idols high when comming to a stop wont idol down

Sounds like you have either a carb with a sticky slide. Pull air box and look down carb throats while twisting throttle (assuming the bike is not EFI)
