Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks spellbound2! :)

Why is my bike not idleing properly and backfiring/popping?


Could be dirt in carb. Clean out all the jets. Could also be sucking air between manifold and head. Make sure gasket/o-ring is sealing and that there are no cracks in manifold rubber.

My r1 wont start


I think you broke the timing chain. You have to take it to a specialist. Don't try to crank it you will only damage the engine. The timing chain is something like the picture... 11_22_2013_11_35_23_pm.png

Will not start after rebuild?


Sounds to me like the fuel isn't reaching the main jet,which in all probability is due to either the needle valve being stuck and/or the float height out of adjustment

81 honda accord runs real rough and backfiring out of carb


That is a car not a motorbike. Bikes only have 2 wheels. But you may want to set up the cam and ignition timing. it is only timing that will cause backfires.

The carburator prolly needs to be cleaned out. Try some carb cleaner through the gas tank first.

You can trouble shooting it with these methods..
1.check your spark plug.
2. If it is CDI operated,replace it.
3. If it is still Contact Point operated:Check its timing,and if you sure the timing is good but nothing's happened,try to replace the condenser.

Motorbikes backfires, and is irratic with accelration.


Nice bike and an annoying issue. Backfire is unburnt fuel that then detonates.

Hopefully, it's just a plug going bad. Pull the plugs and see which one is black/wet. That will be the tell tale sign which cylinder is acting up.

I'd replace all, set the proper gap and install them and take it for a test drive.

Good luck hope this is a simple fix.
