Backfiring can be caused by fouled spark plugs (you have four,two per cylinder), bad spark plug caps, bad air cut valves on the side of the carburetors, but most likely leaking exhaust gaskets. I am guessing that you have changed the exhaust system but did not put new crush o-rings between the cylinder head and the head pipe. You should also change the tubular gasket/seals between the head pipes and the mufflers. If this does not fix the problem , take out the two screws that hold the air cut diaphragms in place and remove the covers . If the rubber diaphragms have holes in them or have become sticky they need to be replaced. Air cut diaphragms turn off the fuel during deceleration to prevent back firing. If they go bad they can cause poor running , popping , and back firing during normal operation.

    Everything you are saying makes sense. However, I've searched the internet and I'm trying to find where you can purchase the parts you are describing above. Any help would be a ton of help.

My kindlefire fire is not staying on it will show the kindlefire logo but turn right back off I have a brand new charger and wire but still no luck

Did you turn the Kindle Fire on immediately after inserting the charger?
The battery may be so low that it will not operate until after it has charged for more than 24 hours.
If that is the case, it is also possible that the battery life has been permanently compromised and won't last long even if you finally get it to work.

It is also possible that the charging port on the bottom edge of the Kindle Fire has been damaged...possibly from forcibly inserting a charging cable upside down. If the port is damaged, the cable would not make contact properly and would not charge.
