You might consider the fuel mixture being too rich and that excess gas is getting into the exhaust and exploding there; it could also be that the exhaust valves in your engine are not closing all the way and excess gas is pouring into the exhaust, last is timing...if it is off, the exhaust valve will be off cycle too and might do the same thing...Check it out!

SOURCE: backfiring on deceleration from exhaust pipes

May be running too lean or too rich. Check the color of your plugs, black dry and sooty means they are rich, white with blisters lean.

SOURCE: ok put new jets in carbs due to sloppy low end

try with the choke on and see if it gets better or worse, will help you work out if it is lean or rich.
popping on decel can also be loose exhaust clamps or gaskets

That is sometimes caused by leaking exhaust valves or air getting in to the intake manifold.

SOURCE: My Sabre has Cobra pipes and a Jet Kit, but I can

The jet kits do not come with slow/idle jets. They only come with main jets and needles/springs. You need to order slow jets in size 48, stock are size 42. Also, if you installed a dynojet kit, which the cobra kit is dynojet, the best jetting that I have found for the setup you have is 165 front 170 rear with the 48 slow jets, also add a k&n filter and you will be excited the next time you ride. One other thing, don't buy the dynojet slow jets, get the factory kein jets. Hope this helps. I forgot to mention, the popping is in the slow circuit, that is why I recommend upping your slow jet to a 48, this will take care of your problem

2006 VTX 1300c neutral light won't come on when in neutral and won't start@


Hi, Tommy and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.
