Had carbs rebuilt and suppose synced but bike starts hard and when running backfires whin you let off the throttle

1. choke circuits still plugged up or carbs not cleaned correctly; most people that attempt to clean their own carbs do not have the proper equipment to do it with. Most carbs have really small orifice(jets) and require really small jet drills/orifice cleaners to clear them out. Cleaning them in a caustic soak tank will clean them out but the carbs must be taken completely apart or it will damage any gaskets or rubbers parts left in it. Carb cleaning should be left to professionals unless one has experience doing it.

2. Open/broken vacuum lines can make it hard to start and backfire when letting off the throttle; jets that are not cleaned out correctly can also make it backfire.

3. If the backside of the inlet grommets are not sealed at the flange and have a vacuum leak, that will cause hard starting and backfire also; this applies to carbs with a flange style grommet. If the intake grommets are cracked or leaking it too will cause hard starting and backfire. Remove the carbs, wipe the head and mating flange surfaces with laquer thinner, let it dry and then reseal the grommets back to the head with rtv silicone rubber. Make sure to wipe any excess rtv(before it drys) from down inside the port before putting the carbs back on.

I have a Ski doo 583 RAVE motor theat backfires

It sounds like you have a reed problem they should be in a "cage" just behind the carbs on the cylinder and if they were missing a piece or if they were cracked it would cause the engine to backfire. If they are in good condition they should close against the cage and stop the back pressure coming through the carbs.

Hesitation and backfiring

sounds like maybe you have some trash in your fuel tank. Try changing the fuel filter and cleaning the carb. If the problem persists, you may have to drop the fuel tank and have it cleaned out.

Four wheeler back fires

If the motor has two carbs then balance the carbs. Balancing the carbs basically means being certain the slides on both carbs open up simultaneously. If one carb opens sooner than the other then it 'drives' the other carb and can cause the backfire. Other things can can cause a backfire but lets start here first.

Samurai backfire

It sounds more like a timing problem. If it backfires through the carb that means the intake valve is open when the spark plug fires. Same with the exaust but it the exhaust valve that is open.
