Question about kawasaki Motorcycles
I have a Kawasaki 300 KLF ATV. Run's good cold but no power hot. Also hard to keep going when hot. I could hear backfirein the carburator when trying to rev the engine. I've check the timing and looks Ok. I also had the carb clean up and adjust. Thank you for your time people. Mike
Check the valves sounds like the intake valve is hanging up and staying open this causing back fireing through the carb

It sounds like it is running too rich (too much fuel). First, make sure the air filter is clean and that there are no intake leaks between the carburetor and the engine. Also, try a new spark plug (they can go bad without warning). Then, with the engine at normal operating temperature and idling, adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the highest idle speed. After this, set the idle to the correct speed using the idle speed adjustment screw.
Test ride. If it still spits and sputters at half to full throttle, then you will need to get a smaller main jet - or go to a less restrictive air filter, such as one by K&N.
Finally, I am not sure what prompted you to put a carburetor kit in, but if the bike had been sitting for any lenght of time (more than 6 months) make sure the carb isn't plugged up.
