Looking at this problem laterally rather than logically, what if the pipe leaks when the bike is working and just happens that the air intake ingests the water at high speed. That would make it misfire.
Does it misfire due to revs or speed?

Cranks no start or fire add gas down throat of carbs and it back fires out pipes and carbs


bikes that sit for long periods of time need there points or electronics pick-ups serviced , rust and aluminum corrosion happens over time on these

miss fires are sure signs of this to mean out of time

and yes the carbs/tank will need a total cleaning out too

After changing the spark plugs, and riding the bike for about10 minutes, I heard a back fire , and the bike started smoking, and gasoline leaking throught the tail pipes.


When you drove it for 10 minutes did it work & run perfect without any missing? One cylinder possibly started missing backfired and then maybe the carb flooded some how. I would pull both plugs first. Have a look at the plugs, then you will be able to tell which one was missing (wet with fuel). Check compression on each cylinder and then check the carb. I hope this helps.

Might be your miracle in a can fix burning causing the smoke. If its coming out of a joint where it clamps, try to tighten the clamp. Sometimes there is also an exhaust gasket where the one pipe slips into the other pipe that could be broke or missing.

While driving on the freeway about 40 miles into the ride the bike just shut off. I pulled in the clutch, coasted, and hit the started an the motor re-fired. total one way trip was no more than 70 miles....


It sounds more electrical in nature to me. If the bike just shuts off, it has lost spark. If it's running out of fuel in the carb, it sputters and coughs out of the carb usually. Not only does it sound electrical, it's an intermittant electrical problem. These are a real bear to find as you have to find it when it's broke. As you say, when you press the button and the bike restarts, it ain't broke then. Start by checking all electrical connectors and make sure they are plugged in good.

Good Luck

DRAIN CARBS FROM PETCOCK AT BOTTOM OF EACH CARB MAKE SURE FUEL DRAINS COMPLETELY THEN TURN FUEL BACK ON, IF THIS IS AN INJECTED MODEL DRAIN TANK AND FLUSH THEN RUN IT HARD FOR 20 MILES OR SO, MAKE SURE YOUR OIL LEVEL IS OK

Engine stalls after running for 25 miles?


Sounds like a fuel or intake problem to me, start the bike and spray brake cleaner onto the intake where it goes into the head, if the bike stumbles then you have an intake leak and have to change the seals or just tighten up the intake manifold. Another thing you could do is remove the carb (if it is carburated) remove the float bowl and clean everything including the jets, you could have some **** in there that is plugging things up. Also try removing the air cleaner and spraying a can of carb cleaner into and around the carb. Also try removing the gas tank and completely cleaning it and the petcock screen out, you could have something in the gas tank that is migrating to the petcock and causing a blockage.

Hi, Sounds like a sticky float valve in one or more of the carbs. When sitting, the carb overfills causing the revving when you start it, then it dies cause the carb isn't filling. Also check the exup valve in the intake, it could also cause the exact same symptoms but because of too much back pressure once it starts. Good Luck to you, hope this helps Fixya!
