Sounds like water in the gas. Bad gas at an old filling station can be the source. More likely is simple condensation in the gas tank. Drain the carbs if not fuel injected and also drain some gas from the tank.

Depending on the mileage of the vehicle sounds like the timing belt has stretched. If the coughing is when you give it gas but not when it is not under load timing belt would be my guess. Good luck and drive safe.

Motor coughs and splutters upon acceleration


Hi Anonymous, if you have a carbuerator the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system (gas cap).
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Vacuum piston malfunction.
4. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
5. Plugged bowl vent.
6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.
9. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
10. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

you will need to do a cylinder leak down check, preferably when it is hot to see if a valve is getting exceptionally hot causing it to lose compression

My bike coughs and splutters and backfires constantly. It's unrideable. It also has an engine knock under load. I use BP ultimate and have tried fuel stabiliser. Any ideas?


Make sure you don't have water in your fuel. Also try a different brand of fuel, some bikes don't like certain types of fuel.

Sounds like you have a plugged up catalytic converter. You cant clean them it will need replaced. If it is the 4cyl engine, the converter is the exhaust manifold on the front of the engine.

Bike coughs,splutters and even backfires more so in low rev's


Either take the carbs off and clean them or add some fuel additive to clean the system. Sounds like you have a clogged jet.
