Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On most bikes, your described problem indicates too lean a mixture. The air/fuel mix would have to be adjusted by reducing the air through the air adjustment screws. Additionally, you may want to check for any air leak on the air filter, air box and the bottom half of the airbox that is seated to the barbs.

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

Install a power commander. This will take care of any backfiring by adjusting the air fuel mixture. You can program the power commander for the type of pipes you are using and high air flow air filter. I had the same problem when I changed out my pipes for Yoshi and installed a BMC air filter.

What fairing kit do you recommend for a Suzuki Tl1000r 1998? Have you bought any injection mold? What tire do you recommend for the rear wheel?

Hi, Yeifri the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

My lt 133 john deere mower has gas in oil and back fires. runs 5 min and stops.

It's going to need a carb kit to fix the problem. Make sure your gas cap is venting ok, because gas expands in the summer and can force gas to pass thru carburetor and flood the cylinder then passing down into the oil. Depending on the age of your mower, the carburetor may have a gas shutoff solenoid on the bottom and this may have malfunctioned. Another is a bad float or needle valve which a carburetor kit would fix. A needle kit with bowl gasket may be all it will need. Hope this will help.

My passlode 18 guage finnish nailer fires intermittently. Gas catridgev is good and battery is now only fires twice after it has been idle for a few minutes.Is this an easy fix?

This is awkward to diagnose. Sounds like a gas problem. Ensure the gas cell is in date. paslode print use by date on bottom. next ensure valve fitted to cell is correct normally yellow. When stopped firing press gas cell door (actuator) does it fire one more time? If yes it could be the actuator getting weak I have seen this cause similar problems to what you are experiencing.

97 chevy c1500 timing chain install 350 it will not run put gas intake it back fires.

Two possible errors . Check that the timing marks are correct and check the firing order of the plugs as the leads may be swapped around or the distributor has be installed incorrectly causing the firing order to be out. Do a compression test to check for bent valves.

Truck is not firing on 3 cylinders yet it runs.. Runs really rough, back fires, under powered.. Plugs are Wet, Firing order is correct. New Spark plug cables. Don't know that is wrong! Please Help

Check for spark at the plug ( may have coil problem).
If spark is good then do a compression check. Pressure shouldn't be less than 75% of known good cylinders.
