This sounds like you might not getting good spark, and since that's happening, gas is building up in the cylinders and backfiring. Make sure you have a good, clean spark plug, and that the wire to it is clean and making good contact. I hope it's something simple like this going on, but here's a discussion about the same problem from a web blog I found:

    spark is fine, took the top off confirmed the key way is in place, sounds like the timing is off.

    This mower started every time then , pulls the cord out of you hand and sometimes back fires.

Firing problems 2000 honda civic


From easiest to hardest on fixing would be to use fuel cleaner, if that doesn't work then you need to change the fuel filter, if that doesn't work then you need to check your injectors, if it still isn't fixed then you need to pull and clean (and possibly replace) your spark plugs.

Why does my 03 holden rodeo back fires & misfires under load, i have replaced sparkplugs but still slugish?


It sounds like your engine needs a tune up, the timing may be off and the carb may need adjusting to get the fuel mixture correct.

Please check your spark plugs , if they are ok , then check if there is any wiring problem , or a loose connection somewhere, the bike would normally **** because of a bad spark plug or plugs.
