Question about 2002 Triumph Bonneville America
Triumph starts easily,revs cleanly but soon as throttle is released to decelerate very loud backfire occurs,would spark plugs be the cause of this as they have not been replaced for quite a while,any ideas would be much appreciated,thank you.
One of the carburetors could be sucking in air through the vacuum port. Had a similar issue on a thruxton. Triumph puts a rubber cover on them. Sometimes the rubber cracks and sometimes the covers just fall off.
