Hi ...... If problem continues try switching petrol off at the tap overnight or when you stop the bike. Sounds like petrol is leaking pass the petrol tap and sitting in the bores and exhausts, soon as you start it up it's igniting in the pipes. Remove the plugs and the colour will indicate how the jetting is set up.

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.

Backfire smoke


This could possibly be caused by several things however the most logical and common reason is simply a sheered flywheel key. This will throw the engine out of time allowing it to fire out of sequence when valves are open instead of closed. I hope this helps you and gets you going again.

12 hp briggs backfires doesn't start


This could be a result of several different things, however the most common of these would be a sheered flywheel key. If this is the case it has throwed the motor out of time and is trying to fire while the exhaust valve is open causing the backfire and lack of compression to start. I hope this has helped.

Check your mufflers. Such problems are usually common with exhaust systems so the first take you should have had was to check them before thinking of your plugs. If you need more about bike functionality then you can check my exhaust for details..

2003 H-D Sportster 883 XLH backfire and sputter problem


There are two things that can cause what you describe: Lack of fuel, and lack of spark.

The easy way to eliminate is put an extra spark plug in your pocket....Ride the bike until it quits, then pull one plug wire, plug in your spark plug and hold the base of it against the block, and crank the engine, while observing the plug.

If you have spark, fuel flow issue is likely, check all filters, and strainers (in tank too). You can pull the fuel line and open the fuel valve and observe flow, but be careful of spark and fire, happens EASILY.

If you do not have spark, investigate the ignition system, if electronic, you can be overheating, usually requiring component replacement.

Why does my ttr 125 not start then backfires?


Your bike has a diaphragm on the carb. Every time you twist the throttle a shot of gas goes into the cylinder. Chances are you are flooding the engine by twisting the throttle too often. Flooding can create a backfire. Start with a clean dry plug. Twist the throttle once then leave it alone for about six kicks. Repeat the process if needed.

What causes our 1986 chevy motorhome to back fire through the carburator? This occurs when you first take off, it stops after awhile when warmed up. Carburator has been rebuilt, new plugs, wires and cap....


Backfire in an automobile engine typically results from various malfunctions related to the air fuel ratio. Backfiring can occur in carburetor engines that are running lean where the air-fuel mixture has insufficient fuel and whenever the timing is too advanced. As the engine runs leaner or if there is less time for the fuel to burn in the combustion chamber, there is a tendency for incomplete combustion. The condition that causes this is a misfire. The result of a misfire or incomplete combustion is that unburned fuel or flammable hydrocarbons are delivered to the exhaust manifold where it may ignite unpredictably.


When starting an engine, timing that is too advanced will fire the spark plug before the intake valve is closed. The flame front will travel back in to the intake manifold, igniting all of that air and fuel as well. The resulting explosion then travels out of the carburetor and air cleaner. A common air filter will allow the gases to escape, but will block the flame front. On many small marine engines, no air filter is used, but a screen is placed over the intake of the carburetor as a flame arrest to prevent these flames from escaping the intake, and potentially igniting fuel, or fuel vapors in the enclosed sump or bilge of the boat and causing a fire or explosion. Improperly adjusted carburetors that create a lean condition during acceleration can cause the air fuel mixture to burn so slowly, that combustion is still taking place during the exhaust stroke, and even when the intake valve opens. The flame front can then travel up the intake and cause a backfire. In this situation it is conceivable that there is a backfire occurring in the intake manifold and exhaust manifold simultaneously.

Good luck and hope this helps, check the carburetor settings to make sure it's not running too lean and the timing . Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your RV running 100% again.
