Did not backfire but , boged out appling fuel. Found it was flooding because
the floats were over filling the chambers. Adjusted float settings (by eye )
problem solved !! Keeping the chambers 1/2 to 3/4 full worked for me.
My Bike is a 1983 Midnight Maxim 653cc. 4 Cylinder. Maybe yours is fuel injected ?
Best of luck !!

1. Remove the plug from the cylinder.
2. Put the plug wire cap on the removed plug.
3. Have a buddy push down several times on the kick starter
while you look at the end of the plug for a spark.
This works best in a dim or dark garage.

Any chance the valve spring has collapsed? Cam shaft thrust washers missing? Cam shaft bearing gone bad?
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

The spark will fire at top dead center and you can see it with a timing light or in the dark with the spark plug removed from the cylinder head but still connected to the coil wire and grounded against the motor (don't hold the plug or you will feel a shock, hold it by the rubber insulator.
