The carburetors have air cut valves that should minimize popping. Inspect the air cut diaphragms for air leaks, cracks ,and holes. Replace them if they are bad. A lot of backfiring is caused by air leaking past bad exhaust gaskets. Try replacing the copper o-ring style crush gaskets where the pipe goes into the head. If the pipes are two piece replace the gaskets where the head pipe meets the muffler ( or make some using fiberglass cloth).

CB250 is backfiring


Backfire when throttle down can be;
1. dirty carbs that are running lean and need cleaning. Also the rubber grommets that hold the carbs can be leaking at the backside or even dry rotted.
2. no air filter
3. broken or open vacuum lines
4. an aftermarket exhaust that needs rejetting or an open exhaust system

great news you can only win with this. i bet if you pull a spark plug and look at it, it will be white or close to it. if so your motor is lean, it's not get the right amount of gas. when you put pipes on a bike it lets more air flow and you need to jet your carb. you local bike shop can help you get a jet kit and handle the install if needed. when done right you get more performance out of it. while you are look into jets get a high flow air filter or look into a hyper charger they come a jet kit, k&n air filter and the air scoop price isn't bad rsports.com/wps/Honda_OEM/HondaMC.asp?Type=13&A=474&B=25

My Honda VTX 1300 backfires when I close the throttle or when I shift down. What should I do. It sounds like a gun shot


Your bike is running lean (too much air and not enough fuel). What, if any, modifications have you done to the bike? If you changed the exhaust out for louder pipes, you need to adjust the f/a (fuel/air) mixture in the carburetor to compensate for more air going through the bike. Let me know here if you have made any type of mods to the bike.

Bike backfires and misses.


Run some Seafoam through the carbs. Should be available locally at a parts store. Mix with your gas according to directions. This will clean out the carbs, which sound like they are a little gummed up.
