Try with the choke on and see if it gets better or worse, will help you work out if it is lean or rich.
popping on decel can also be loose exhaust clamps or gaskets

I have a 2000 kawasaki zx6r. i layed it down at about 50 and put new plastics on a took off carbs and cleaned them because of throttle stick well when i put them back on i synced the carbs and it revs...


You might still have clogged pilot jets, also check the cold start circuit and idle circuits, when you synce the carbs did you do them at idle and 6k rpm?

Sloppy idle,sloppy low end throttle,back firing when coasting down


Back fire on coasting down,deceleration,is a lean condition,that will also cause the idle,low end sloppy throttle,idle speed jet has become dirty,a good carb clean/rebuild with carb kit,carburators synchronized,and fuel mix adjustment,I would also check for any air leaks,that can cause a lean condition too.

2002 polaris scram. 90 cc. all new top end and new carb. Come 2 me with no compression, found rings stuck to piston and jug scratched up. Like i said new top end and carb. starts great and idles great,But...


First question since i am assuming it was just sitting around for some time if i am correct you need to pull the carb remove the float bowl and components if everything was done correctly with your rebuild the likely problem is your carb is gummed up remove everything in the carb low speed jet etc. soak everything in sea foam fuel cleaner overnight and hopefully you have some compressed air and blow out that low speed jet and passage way pay close attention that you have see fluid coming from the other end and check the jet make sure it is unclogged hold it up to the light.

My 1999 Honda shadow backfires on deceleration after steady throttle what could cause this? I have tuned it and cleaned the carb but it still does it.


The most common reason for backfiring is lack of back pressure from changing the exhaust. To compensate for the flat spot you get you put in a jet kit. This leaves the possibility of more unburned gas getting into the exhaust. Honda uses Kei Hin carbs with a fuel shut off diaphragm to help limit this condition (backfiring) by turning off the fuel to the carbs during deceleration. Even stock exhaust can pop or backfire. Typically it is caused by air getting into the exhaust either past the copper o-ring gaskets in the head or leaking muffler connections from the head pipes to the mufflers. Try replacing all the exhaust gaskets and you should minimize this condition.

Backfires on down shifts and when reving up. Mainly when the rpms are going down


Your idle mixture is too lean. You can adjust this by locating the mixture screw on the carb(carbs) and turning it counter-clockwise an 1/8th turn at a time. This will not affect running above 1/4 throttle, but will richen your idle circuit and the lean popping on deceleration. If you have misses above 1/4 throttle when accelerating, tou likely have trash in your jets and the carb will need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned.

2004kx250f won't kick start, can push start. popping when decelerating, won't idle


idle jet has probably got blocked, there are two jets, an idle and a main, when your bump starting it is most likely using the main jet and when you decreas the throttle it is coming onto the blocked idle jet. take the idle jet out of the carb and check it.

1986 honda shadow vt500c throttle hesitation.


If your bike has carbs and not fuel injection, ( difficult to remember back 23 years ago ), then remove the carb slides and move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix and provide it sooner. You may need to go two notches but start with one notch. Also, sync the carbs such that the slides on both carbs move at the same exact instant when the throttle is slowly turned from idle speed < engine off. Clean the carbs when you get a chance.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Cindi!
