    have you checked the inlet rubbers between the carbs and engine for cracks? they can perish with age.....and cause the symptoms you describe.

Make sure you didn't lose one of your screws in your idle adjustment or carb. Happened to me. I additionally had loss of power. Maybe lost 15 to 20 mph. I adjusted my idle screw too much and it flew off. Few bucks, good as new.

My 1999 honda shdow aero backfires on de acceleration.ihave changed plugs,coils &wires.


Backfiring on deceleration is air getting into the exhaust and igniting unburned fuel. You probably have an after market exhaust on. You need to seal up the exhaust system by replacing all the exhaust gaskets. Dig the copper crush washers out of the head and replace them with new copper crush washers. This should take care of most of the popping. If the problem persists,unbolt the fuel cut diaphragms from the side of the carburetors and inspect them for holes and stickiness. Replace the fuel cut diaphragms if they are bad . Fuel cut diaphragms are on almost all Honda Kei Hin carburetors to stop the cycles from popping or backfiring on deceleration With the stock exhaust.
