Sounds like a spark problem ,coils once the carbs load up it takes off and the extra fuel in the cylinder is not fireing so you get a back fire check the plug gaps and make sure it;s the right plug , then check to see what kind of spark you have if it's weak replace the coils

2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Sabre starts fine but acts like its running out of gas after riding a half mile. Let it sit for awhile and It will ride for another half mile then stop again. I have changed the fuel...

Next time it does this, remove/open the gas cap and see if that helps.
If so, then the venting system for the gas tank is plugged somewhere, and you're vapor locking.

Front Tyre feathering on Silverwing 600

The OEM Dunlop, IRC,Bridgestone, or quality major brand tire should be adequate. I have always had the best life and wear out of my tires by running higher pressure (usually 35-36 pounds ). The ride is harder but it reduces cupping on the tire sides increasing usable tire life.

1986goldwing will start and idol but when you give it gas it dies

BO, to check the fuel pump, disconnect the line running to the carbs, then start it up , to see if it is pumpping,if it is that means your high speed jetts might be stopped up, if you do not want to take them off to clean them, poor some SEA FOAM in your gas tank ,and let set there and run for a bit. It might smoke but after it stops ,it will be cleared up,
