I would think that the valves need adjusted or the timing could possibly need adjusted. Check to make sure the screws are tight on the timing plate and verify timing marks on the crank and cam.

Just bought a 1994 Shadow 1100.Bike was sitting for a while Got it running but wont idle,and Back fires .Would this be a carb.problem or something else?


Yes, it is a carb problem. The carbs need to be thoroughly cleaned. It won't idle because the slow speed circuit is gummed up. The back fire is a situation where one carb is driving another. The best carb is driving the engine and the worst carb is running rich. This imbalance causes the backfire.

I have a 1985 Yamaha Virago and the front cylinder is back firing and it breaks up at low RPM


Yes, the problem is likely the "low/idle fuel circuit". There's choke, idle, and hi rpm fuel "circuits" (not as in electrical). The idle clogs first since its small, and the front cylindar seems to go first on this bike. rebuild w/gaskets. 3 hours shop labor = ~ $240. good luck.
