    That could be any number of things. Worn shaft splines, output shaft fasteners giving out, final drive wear. How many miles on the bike and how much play in what direction(s)?

Check your u-joints, and your final drive gears. Could be play in either of the two.

Why my TVS Victor Glx bike misfire on breaks application or de accelerated .Mileage is around 30.Spark plug is replaced,regular service is done.it's accelerate a lot when fuel is going to finish.Help


Hi, Anonymous popping or backfiring on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec. Coughing is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals. Spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.

It is pretty normal for many engines to backfire while decelerating. Bikes have much shorter exhaust and much less sound control so it is much more obvious. If it is running good while idleing and while accelerating it's probably not a fault.

Bike popping after deceleration. also coolent coming out of over flow hose and bike feels like its over heating yamaha 2003yz450f


Hi De Lara, popping on deceleration is usually caused by an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and the correct torque applied to the exhaust clamps where present. Coughing is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs of location by a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals. Spitting is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw set to lean. Good luck and have a nice day.

Just test rode a 1998 Yamaha Royal Star and there is a noticable whine in the drive train when I let off the throttle. Having never ridden one before I need to know if this is normal for that bike. Thanks


Shaft drive vehicles do make whining sounds you do not hear in a chain or belt drive models. Some whining sounds(also speed related) deal with the brand, mileage,and pressure of the tires. This bike also has two 90 degree turns in the drive line. One at the motor and one at the final drive. This takes more energy for acceleration and causes quicker deceleration when you let off on the gas, even without using the brakes.

Chatter feeling when under acceleration


Not sure what problem is but my 97 does the same thing it has a rattle or chatter at low throttle and deceleration. Did you ever figure out what the problem was?

2006 suzuki 1300 hayabusa cranks and runs great but smokes alot of white smoke


Crankcase oil is getting into the combustion process. Check the following: Crankcase oil level - make certain it is not overfilled. Crankcase ventilation system - check for blocked or kinked crankcase vent hoses.
If the smoking persists, try to take note of weather it is during acceleration, or deceleration. Smoke during acceleration normally indicates worn piston rings, while smoke during deceleration means worn valve guides and/or valve guide seals.
If the smoke smells like antifreeze, then you most likely have a leaking head gasket.

the main shaft bearings in the gear box may be worn allowing movement, & when under load then unloaded gives you that thump!

Steering wobble at 65km decelerating


No this is not normal. I had to go through 2 different times having a tire balanced once to get a wobble out.
