Hi, Keith and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test "WARNING" you can have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps and the battery must be replaced.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Backfiring and trouble starting


If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

I have a yamaha dirt bike that someone stole and


Check the igniter. Go back to the dealer and ask him to see one. Then go back and find it on your bike. Yamaha's usually have them under the seat, or left side. But I don't know exactly what year you have. Run the VIN on the frame under my tips and tricks is a web site that'll break it down for you.

baffles are on a bike for a dual reason one it cuts down on noise and the other real important one is proper back pressure your valves will get no commpression relief if the air can just escape to fast your bikes motor will get hotter faster damage depends on how your valves are set and the choice of spark plug you run i would say for your peace of mind if you want a loud pipe get power cones to give back the pressure your motor needs and then you can run a free exaust flowing pipe that back fire is your valves already going out of adjustment they are not closing right and extra air is sneaking in during the intake /exaust transition i hope this helps you

My bike is back firing, how do I fix it?


open the airbox and clean the airfilter. If you have made any adjustments on the carb you may need to retune it as sometimes vibrations can alter them. Also if it has a file line filter check that its not clogged or obstructed in anyway.
