I have a 95 yamaha virago with 12,000 miles on it. The tick is normal... The backfiring is not, back pressure is cuz of the drive shaft. I had a similar problem when cracking the throttle at a high rpm. check you plugs for fouling and gap. clean them and regap to around .030. sand inbetween the electrode and outer pin and the outer pin. if the electrode is shot replace them but remember to gap it. should fix your problem. good luck.

Car won't pull back speed when foot off accelerator

Very possibly a vacuum issue. Maybe a line that needs vacuum for the trans is on an inlet that effects the throttle. Not sure how old your vehicle is.

Mazda3 rpm's go up and down while driving

After I had the throttle body of my 2005 mazda3 cleaned, the RPMs would jump drastically - bouncing back and forth up to 16 times! The service manager seemed perplexed...and ultimately the solution was TIME. The bouncing gradually diminished and then stopped...can't remember for sure, but it was probably over about 6 weeks, maybe about 1000 miles.

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Yamaha xv 1100 virago

To me it sounds like the coil is breaking down and not working at higher RPM's. You can take them off and have them tested at a service shop.

My gsxr 1000 is running at 5000 rpm's and it wll not come down

sounds like somthing is wrong with the throttle and its just a fluke with the gas. try removing the ground off the battery or postive which ever you can get off let bike sit for half an hour disconnectted reconnect and see if it still does this if it does bring it to a dealer as it should be covered under warrenty

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.
