Running rough and backfires

I was riding my 2005 honda spirit750 and had to flip to reserve that's when the backfiring and rough running occurred barely made it home any ideas? My friend has the same bike so we swapped the icm but that was not the culprit Could it be in the carb?

Yes tht could be the carburator since the dirt / fine rust tht settles at the bottom of the tank has found its way in to the carb.
Clean the carbs. and replace the in-line filter.
Water in gas could also be it, since water floats and you had reached the gas to reserve the water may have found its way to the carbs and thus the rough running and back firing .

Why is my atv Honda fourtrax 350 backfireing


it sounds like its starving for fuel, when it runs lean you will get backfires and if its running rough then it may be starving for fuel at idle. Try adjusting you mixture screw and see it the engine will smoot out. Your carb my be dirty and not allowing enough fuel through it.

Why does it backfire and quit after riding for 1 hour?


is it running out of gas? backfire is caused by a lean condition. I'd check the fuel path from the tank to the carb and clean the carbs. could have something floating around in there occasionally blocking fuel flow.

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.

My 05 crf 450r will not idle when I turn off the choke it also is backfiring and poping when I give it gas . Could it have something to do with the hot start cable ?


Check your pilot jet is not blocked or try adjusting your idle screw for the idle issue and it sounds like its runing lean which can also make it idle low and rough and will cause it to pop and backfire. Dont think it has anything to do with your hot start cable that will make it run it run better if its running rich but your is doing the opposite

2007 Honda Shadow Spirit VT1100c exhaust leak at cylinder head and it backfires


Hi, Ltbuerkle #8 looks good and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Rough start on Honda 750 Aero Shadow. Starts great in reserve, but when you shut reserve off it stalls out. Backfired too. Any advice?


Chances are the main filter screen is plugged with rust and trash. The reserve filter screen doesn't get used much so trash hasn't been drawn into it too much. Remove the gas petcock assembly and clean it. You may want to consider a liquid tank liner. It will seal the rust so that it will no longer be a problem. Google “ kreem liquid fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html
