Rapid popping/crackling noise in xr80

Just bought '03 honda xr80. Started making popping/crackling noise when kids are riding. Appears to be coming from exhaust. Mainly hear when bike is being ridden, not so much in neutral. Runs good, but still concerned bout cause of noise.

A four stroke will pop and backfire under decelleration when it is lean, or not enough fuel. (Jetting too small in the carburator) But, look at the spark plug for color, white is too lean, black is too rich, and chocolate is just right. Make sure the air filter is good and clean. And lastly... have the valves been adjusted?

I have a Mazda 6 5sp Manual, Crackling/Popping when stopped.


Could be something jumping around in the exhaust. Is your catalytic conv in that area?

Honda CB250 ticking after it ran out of oil


Is there any area on the bike that is covered with what seems to be "wet dirt"? It is entirely possible you could have a blown seal and are therefore dumping oil. If the dipstick is showing nothing, there is not enough oil for the engine and it will seize so don't run it until you locate the source of the leak.

Unless the bike has constant white or bluish-gray smoke coming out of the exhaust all the time, it's not burning oil.

The tapping you are hearing could be a a lifter, valve, connecting rod...whatever it is, the tick started recently and you don't see oil on the dipstick, there is a major oil leak somewhere.
