Backfire & Jetting: Yes, the backfire is caused by the bike running lean which is caused by more air than fuel the "air fuel mixture."on the left side above the engine cover there's a side/tool cover. Take it off. Under the tool compartment and above the air injection canister there's a hose. Take it off and hide it for a better time. The air inlet metal nozzle should be plugged. If you have the plug/rubber cap delivered with your hypercharger use it but turn it inside-out attach to the nozzle and let it plip back dragging aroud the tube. ------------- The bike is running lean.Its the PMS adjustment problem related to carbs problem. owever, you will need to adjust your PMS screws, so you will want to start that process while you have the carbs off the bike to rejet. If the carbs had never been touched before you will have a thin brass cap with a tiny pinhole in the center that covers your PMS screws. You'll need to enlarge that hole, you can use a drill bit (but be very careful because the screws underneath are soft brass so easy to mess up if you drill too far!), insert a self-tapping screw and yank those caps off. After you rejet you might want to run the screws all the way in until lightly seated, then back them out about 3-3.5 turns. While you have the carbs off make sure to do a bench sync to get the sync on the carbs close and then once reinstalled you will want to do a proper sync on them.The carbs have a idle enrichment circuit. If the idle enrichment diaphragms are stuck in the closed position, the bike will backfire when the throttle is shut down. You can't remove these parts for cleaning without seperating the two carb bodies (and then needing to synchronize the carbs after reassembly). Working on your carbs is not difficult if you have a basic grasp of tools, a basic understanding of what you are doing and go slow. The other option is to get it done by the professional mechanic in your area. Have them re-jet the carbs and synchronize them.....that high of an altitude would probably change the air/fuel mixture......If the front header pipes are turning gold it is too lean and if they are becoming blue it is too rich.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Just picked up a 2006 v-star 1100 custom. when the engine is warmed up i am hearing a ticking coming from the front cylinder. the bike has been sitting for awhile and only has 5800 km(3625 miles) on it....


The ticking could be excessive valve clearance but since it's popping on deceleration, it's possible what you hear is an exhaust leak. Check the pipe connections at the cylinder. This is a very common issue - especially because the front pipe has to be removed to change the oil filter, so if the problem began after service it's entirely possible they re-used the exhuast gasket.

I hope this helps.

A kuryakin hyper-charger installed on a 2004 Yamaha V-star 1100 custom. has tendency to back-fire a lot whenever i let off the gas.


Hi, Patwhite64
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING or backfiring on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.

I'm replacing exhuast pipes on my 2004 honda sabre vt100c2. What are the torque specs for the bolts going into the cyclinder?


I always just do them by hand but not more than say 20 ft lb as per my book

I have a 04 1100 sabre also. I installed cobra slash cuts. I had alot of popping on decel. Then installed some thunder monster baffles to regain some of the backpressure and now I have no decel popping. Also have K/N also with a jet kit. I installed the 175 and the 170 jts as per instructions and my milage was about 150 when you hit reserve. I then moved the needle up one notch and the milage went to abot 110 at reserve. About 3.1 gallons. Today I am rejetting it back to specs and installing the 165 and the 170 jets. If your not aware of this yet the carbs do use differnt size jets, even stock. i'l let you know how this works.

Dj683 i installed bub pipes on my 2000 yamaha


I too had this popping back fire on my 2004 Yamaha 1100 custom.
Seems the AIS system is causing this.

This site has an excellent PDF file and instructions.
http://www.sloneservices.com/SilverBack/Other-Stuff/AIS%20Removal.pdf
There is also a simple way to block of the AIS without stripping it off the bike. Reversible too!
(Usually my first choice to see if the desired results are achieved.)

Good luck!
Loved my BUB pipes too!
