    Hi ads,

    You have to check the ignition coils.

    secondly if there is water in gas it does behave like tht too.

    What type of igntion system is fitted in your bike?

    Electronic or conventional?

How do i fix a bike that keeps backfiring after having it in a shop?


black plugs is running too rich
you lack of information doesn't include relevant information like engine size, 2stroke -4stroke-points or ignition module
backfiring is the combustion of a air fuel mixture when the inlet manifold is open to the combustion chamber
if 2 stroke it can be from a lean mixture from leaking crank shaft seals, worn rings
if 4 stroke it will occur when the inlet valve is open
this can be from incorrect valve clearance opening the valve too early
the ignition can be from a loose earth wire for the points or ignition module, faulty module or loose wire in the ignition switch or kill switch
I would take it to another bike shop for a diagnosis as the first shop is missing something either from a poor evaluation of the problem or from a lack of experience by the mechanics

Whats wrong when your riding and the bike starts cutting out, backfiring, then just goes dead?


The first thing that you can check is the fuel pump, wiring and fuel filter. The power wires coming from the ignition, sometimes get corroded. the symptoms sounds like fuel starvation.

562xp backfire loss power


There were some issues with the fuel hose becoming kinked under heavy load, there is a later hose to stop this happening, the hose has a grommet which pulls into a recess in the plate under the carb, you can try removing it from the recess which gives it less bend as it comes up to the carb.

1996 Suzuki Savage 650 backfires on cutoff


I had the same prob with my 97, It was not the head gasket but the O-ring on top of the head. Replaced the O-ring and has been running good for a year now with no backfire. Hope this helps.

2003 dyna ignition breaking down


It never hurts to check your grounds, they have a habit of loosening up. It sounds like either the voltage regulator or the stator is failing to me. If you can get it to fail at home take a multi-meter and get a reading on the stator, I don't know the values on a dyna, but you should get a reading at idle and it should climb as you rev the motor. When my sporster did this it turned out to be the stator.

Backfiring, flames coming out of exhaust and cutting out


Sounds to be a timing problem or burnt exhaust valve.. A compression test will tell the story.

06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph


It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.
