Start with the basics, (****, Squeeze, Bang, Blow).
Check fuel is getting to cylinder.
Check Spark plugs by holding on cylinder head and cranking see if sparks.
check compression, should be approx same across all cylinders usually about 120-140 psi at a guess. I have had an older engine still running fine with 100 psi. (Workshop manula tells exact limits)
Check exhaust is clear some idiot could have blocked it for a laugh!
check air filter is fairly clean. Oil type can be cleaned paper type are disposable. I would initial just hoover it if its a paper one.
If you have a spark and fuel and compression and it still plays up check the ht leads are in good condition, even dirty plugs can arc to earth loosing the vital spark needed. Older coils do tend to break down particularly yamaha ones! I do not know where triumph source there parts but i know it is from various countries.
Hope this helps a bit

O7 rhino 660 runs good,then backfires and stalls.starts every crank,but will run short time then stalls.does not backfire everytime.seems like it runs longer when it sets couple of days.


I would overhaul the carby and check for corrosion in the main jet and other circuits
if it is a 2 stroke I would check the crank shaft seals as they may be hard and leaking mixture and running lean ( backfiring)

Why does my engine back fires sometimes on constant throttle and chek engine light is on?


It's time to run diagnostics. I presume that bike supports OBDII... get codes - they'll tell us what's wrong.

SOUNDS like a crank position sensor, though.

2009 Honda Shadow Aero ran fine yesterday, stopped for about 3 hours would not start last night. Turned over would not start, help?


sounds like a CDI issue!
could also be an ignition switch or run/stop switch issue.
is the bike lacking any power when running?
Maybe stator pick-up coil as well.
Have electrical components checked at the dealer.

Chances are there is a water build up in the carb float bowls. The water comes from condensation in the gas tank. Try draining the carbs. Another possibility is carburetor main jets partially plugged up. You must clean the carbs if plugged jets are found to be the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_152.gif

Hi Mrcherry99, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service department and inquire about any possible quick fix. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if possible, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.
