SOURCE: Backfiring won't start bought new coils still won't start and pops backfires

Do you have a carburetor? If you do, it is set too rich. Also, your timing appears off. If you do have a carburetor, adjust the setting to the left a couple of turns. This will lean out the gas mixture. If you have a fuel injector, have the system checked. The air filter could be clogged and the fuel injector could be misaligned.

A backfire is often created because the timing is off, forcing the spark plugs to fire before the pistons get to the top of its power stroke, causing the mixture to burn prematurely.

Did the Impeller Pitch Change? Pitch will change the Max RPM, Are you Pulling harder out of the Hole than you did prior? You may have traded Torque for Top End

Engine will not idle when warm, hard to start


There is one screw that adjusts the revs,you can increase the engine revs and it should solve the idling problem.Be careful as there may be one for air mixture which could look similar..make sure you adjust the one for the revs only.If this does not solve your problem then let us know.
