Hi! You surely have fuel flooding causing the bike to misfire. I strongly suggest that you replace the spark plugs and plug wires for better fuel burning. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Misfire po300


po300 is a code and it means missfire on multiple cylinders.you say it has multiple missfires on cylinder 1,you should check the spark plugs on this cylinder they may need replacing and if so replace all plugs on motor.the other thing to check is injectors to make sure they are being powered up and have good grounds,and are flowing properly and not plugging up with dirt.you should also check the compression on the motor don`t just do cylinder 1 as a problem could be starting in another even though its telling #1.its also possible you could have a rotor problem on your motor.you don`t say what year this is so you should check with mazda if it is a compression problem as they have adjusted their warranty because of rotory engine problems.just some places to start.expensive to repair depends on how much experience you have on working of rotory engines and if you have the proper tools to do the work.some people feel 100. dollars is expensive some are okay with 2000.dollars.you are the only that can determine this but either way you have to find out what the problem is first.

if its a multiple missfire then i would suspect your fuel pressure is dropping or your regulator has failed and is sucking too much fuel causing the computer to overcompensate, these engines are also known for intake leaks

Car suddenly started running poorly, Difficult to start, and bogs badly when gas pedal is pushed. Gradual acceleration up to 2500 to 3000 rpm allows it to go but it does not get better when warmed up. Some...


popping out of the tail pipe is usually a tell tail sign of a timing issue. Pull the timing cover and hand crank the engine. If the marks on the crank and cam line up check vacuum. If needle fluctuates roughly 2in/hg take note(possible burned valves) Inspect the plugs for signs of carbon fouling(fuel injector issue). if the plugs show good burning with a yellowish white check compression. If compression is good check cylinder leak down. if cylinder leak down is less than 30%. check exhaust back pressure.

A blinking check engine light indicates one or more cylinders is currently missfiring. You will have to scan the computer and get the code to determine which cylinder it was. Then you can start you diagnostics to figure out why it was missfiring.
