Carbs. Need to remove and fully clean the carbs. This is a task best left to dealer unless you fully understand motorcycle carbs. Lots of small little parts and pieces to lose.

My 1998 honda ace is poping when i get on the gas

Could be a carb problem or a firing problem. Use a inline spark plug tester to check the fire on both cylinders to make sure spark is there. Afterward,use a spray bottle with water in it,and spray the plug wires with bike running. If it arcs,or starts running rough, needs plug wires. If neither of these are the issue,then most likely you have carb problems,and they will need to come off,be cleaned and synched.

These are the procedures.......

First remove and replace the spark plugs.

Check the piston by using the kick start if it still loose.

Change the engine oil and oil filter

Drain the old fuel and put a new fuel and filter.

2000 honda 1100 shadow spirit. Rough idle, little power.

Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

92 honda accord #3 cylinder no spark

Trade #2 & #3 plug wires. If you loose fire on #2, you have a bad wire if not, replace cap & rotor. The TCU is transmission controller. The ECU is not going to cause a single cylinder mis-fire.

Not hitting on all cylinders 1999 honda shadow 750 with 5000 mile

HI harleyrider6,
No hitting means not firing?
Assuming tht its not firing up upon cranking,
please check if theres gas coming to the spark plugs and sparks too.
Not a bad idea to replace the spark plugs if they are fouled up!

Good luck.
