HEy bedfords, Sounds like a blocked pilot/idling jet, go get youself some carb cleaner to poor into ypur petrol tank, if that fails then carbs need to come off and cleaned...also check tank for build up of rust,dirt, etc.

26" Hyper Havoc Full Suspension Men's Mountain Bike is it good ride for around town as well as country terrain


Looks like a nice bike to ride everywhere and as an urban commuter I would love to ride it in traffic instead of using a road bike or commuter type. If you need more speed in town or want to compete, a road bike might be better. A mountain bike will probably last longer than a road bike under all driving conditions.

Coughing and splattering


have you had the dispack changed on any of this trips to the mechanic's as it sound to me to be this. it would take around 30 min for it to over heat if it had a fault. then you would get a low spark, no power and eventually just stop working all together.

My triumph tt600 2002 has developed a cough and splutter when idle and low revs! It did back fire and cut out when slowing to stop. I have taken baffles out and been running like this for a year. Just had...


I would start with new plugs and cleaning the air filter. Also, if the bike has carburetors, I would drain the carbs. Condensation from the gas tank may have gotten into the carb float bowls.

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.

Misfire & spluttering when warm


Hi wayne

Not knowing what you have checked or done already, I would first remove the spark plug from the bike and check it fir a carbon deposits. If it has not had a new one for a while, Just get a new one and replace it. Before I drop the oil for a service(as it can dirty up the oil), I also like to run a fuel system cleaner additrive(I use a Nulon product) to my bikes every few thousand kays, just to keep everything tip top. If you still have misfire problems, then it will most likely be a faulty sparkplug cap, ignition lead or other ignition part. Change out/clean spark plug with a wire brush first. I think that will fix it for you. If you still have problems,happy to talk to you more about it.
