This really sounds like a timing issue.
May I suggest a trip to your local library. Cycle repair books should be in 646 stacks of reference.
The plug is firing at the wrong time.

open up the ignition cover plate and check the backing plate. it may have come loose and threw the bike out of time.
make sure your plug wires are plugged on tight and the coil wires are secure.
It is most definitely a timing problem.

Check the wiring to the spark plugs and replace if necessary.If that does not solve then go one step further backwards towards cdi etc...

There is probably a small leak in the intake tube to that cylinder. Remove and carefully inspect and reinstall carb and induction manifold.

WHAT MAKES A BIKE BACKFIRE


Backfires are usually caused by an ignition timing problem. The spark comes when the intake or exhaust valve is open this caiuses the ignited fuel to burn in the carb or the exhaust pipe.

CB250 is backfiring


Backfire when throttle down can be;
1. dirty carbs that are running lean and need cleaning. Also the rubber grommets that hold the carbs can be leaking at the backside or even dry rotted.
2. no air filter
3. broken or open vacuum lines
4. an aftermarket exhaust that needs rejetting or an open exhaust system

My harley 2004 sportster XL883 is starting, but it is backfiring alot and when i try to ride it has no power.


Is it backfiring through carb or exhaust? Has it been sitting for any period of time? We suspect carb issues. Try cleaning carb, pay special attention to the pilot jet and main jet circuits. Clean with spray carb cleaner and air, do not use wire. Make sure needle and seat are clean.

My 1999 Honda shadow backfires on deceleration after steady throttle what could cause this? I have tuned it and cleaned the carb but it still does it.


The most common reason for backfiring is lack of back pressure from changing the exhaust. To compensate for the flat spot you get you put in a jet kit. This leaves the possibility of more unburned gas getting into the exhaust. Honda uses Kei Hin carbs with a fuel shut off diaphragm to help limit this condition (backfiring) by turning off the fuel to the carbs during deceleration. Even stock exhaust can pop or backfire. Typically it is caused by air getting into the exhaust either past the copper o-ring gaskets in the head or leaking muffler connections from the head pipes to the mufflers. Try replacing all the exhaust gaskets and you should minimize this condition.

My sportster backfires constantly. How can I resolve this problem? I had the carburator cleaned and adjusted, but it still backfires.


Ok, due to different terminology used by different people, I'm going to assume that by "backfire", you mean it pops through the exhaust system when you back off the throttle. On stock exhaust systems which use the "crossover" connector to connect the front and rear pipes, the backfire is usually caused by an air leak somewhere in the exhaust system.

When you back off on the throttle, the mixture is usually too rich to burn in the exhaust system. But, if you have an air leak allowing the scavenging effect of the system to **** air in, the mixture becomes combustable and is ignited by subsequent exhaust pulses.

Check your exhaust system gaskets and replace them if necessary. This should stop your problem. Rejetting the carb may be necessary as well.

Did you sync the two carbs? If not the rear may be getting all the gas from the rear carb and none to the front. Twist throttle engine off and see if front carb cable is pulling the carb open.
Also unscrew the spark plug boot from the front spark plug wire and trim 1/8th inch off the wire and screw the boot back in. The plug wire end may be corroded on that wire.

check for leaks around the exhaust headers,mine did what yours is doing,i replaced the copper exhaust seals in the head(exhaust ports),air is getting into your exhaust system and it mixes with the unburnt fuel and ignites causing the backfire,i replaced copper seals(about $2nz each) and problem went away
