SOURCE: Stage 1 Low rpm backfire

If you are running straight pipes they might not give you the right back pressure. This can be reolved by either going back to riginal pipes or instaling a bolt into the pipes about 5 inches in to make back pressure. Another thing? Did you have the bike's electronic ignition reset after you messed with it?

Any change or modification to any of your vehicles systems can effect your bikes factory warranty! Removing the baffles from the existing mufflers is possible with the proper tools but I think that the internal catalytic converters will prevent this. Changing the entire exhaust or just the mufflers should require the addition of a electronic "fueler" to ensure optimum operation as your bike is delivered to the showroom from H-D running lean thanks to the EPA. For the DIYer I suggest looking at www.vanceandhines.com for exhaust options and accessories.

This is a timing issue and has nothing to do with the fuel system that you have. You dont say how many miles are on it. Run a cylinder leak down test on it to see if the valves are seating correctly and the mechanical timing is right.

SOURCE: bike runs but back fires

You didn't say what year or model bike it is but I would guess, and that's all this is, that the rear cylinder is running lean for some reason. You may have an intake vacuum leak sucking air into the rear cylinder. That's my best guess.

Good Luck
Steve

Hi,
That looks like a REED VALVE leak.
If your 2 stroke kept coming out from the carb air intake and as you say that sometimes a back fire in the exhaust.

Check these....
  • Reed valve
  • Crank oil seal ( there might be air leak in the block )
  • Exhaust pipe ( might be already blocked )

Hope that helps you out!

there is not too many combinations of firing order to check.
one coil fires plug 1 and 4
the other coil fires 2 and 3
just turn the flywheel past the pick up for 1,4 and make sure the coils are correct
the only other things that could happen in a straight engine swap are exhaust and inlet gasket leaks and incorrect fuel line , vacumn hose.
I assume all the wiring is replaced in the correct plugs

Low rpm loss of power with aftermarket vance and hines pipes


If you have carburetors you need to install a jet kit. If you have a fuel injected bike you need to add a Power Commander and program it for the changes you have made to the intake side of the engine. Make sure you installed all new exhaust gaskets or you will have lots of popping and back firing.

I have a 1992 Suzuki GSX-R 750, that wont start


It is in the carbs, A bike will act like that when it needs to be jetted, most jets are not adj, but whoever built the bike, must have messed with the carbs, you can go back to factory settings, which is about 1 1/4 turns out, and try it, you might need to get new jets, you might want to try dyno jet kit, they are adj and work great.. I had to do my bike, the exhaust was burning my eyes, backfired, wouldn't run, factory jets didn't work. But I found a dyno jet kit on ebay, and it works great. But before you take the carbs off, take a piece of heavy paper and cut the air intake in half with the paper to see what it does, then cut by 1/3, then 1/4, just to see if the intake is messing with you. Check it out, hope it helps.

Make sure intake and exhaust are clear of any obstructions. It really sounds like its a timing issue. Not coils. Its firing when the valves are open instead of when they are shut. Check timing, and get new plugs. You may have to replace some of the timing parts.

What size spark plug for a 2000 harley davidson road king carbed,


Your Twin Cam plug should be a 6R 12 Harley Plug. Often times the back fire is just the nature of the beast depending on what type of pipes you are running. Harleys do run lean, its an EPA thing thtas why they choke them down from the factory. Since you have a carb you could have an intake leak around the Intake. Also Under the carb is an adjustment screw. Harley plugs it up so people don't play with it. You have to just drill out the plug this will set your air fuel. Whenever I take a carb off I drill out that plug. Heat your bike up operating temp and ear tune that screw. Only other way is with air fuel analizer or a dyno. good luck.also that backfire is caused by fuel hitting your exhaust when you let off just to let you know.
