backfiring

Post by Drtchmp180 » Mon Aug 10, 2015 7:47 am

My 2004 1300s runs great,good acceleration,very smooth but she backfires really loud.It looks like the previous owner drilled the stock exhaust.I was told that this is a sign of a finely tuned engine!Some feedback would be good.Starts good,runs good but scares the bejesus out of the locals when she backfires! lol. Dave. :cheers:

Check the exhaust crush gaskets.

"The sign of a well tuned engine"? Seriously? I have a bridge over some swampland in Florida for you!

It's called the Clayton mod (no relation to me) and 9.9 times out of 10 it's done by folks with a drill and a want for louder pipes. I would argue it probably hurts overall performance as it would decrease back pressure.

You could also do the PAIR removal/desmog. I know that helped my backfiring problems on my 1800. But definitely, as they said, check them crush gaskets.

My VTX would back fire as well. Since using Premium Gas best one is Shell Nitro my backfiring has all but ceased.. As told by another biker that was told by a bunch of young bikers.

The 1300`s are prone to vacumm leaks on the rubber lines connecting to the carb.
Check them and replace any with cracks .

Backfires??? Hell, my 1800 will spit 3 ft flames ! Gotta hold the throttle just right decelerating! :lol:

All engines will backfire on decel, a stock muffler will choke the sound out. Aftermarket exhaust lets everything out. You have to be sure to have the throttle on or off, if you are decelerating with a bit of fuel still going into the cylinders, you are going to be backfiring and popping. If I wind my 1800 up to say 5000rpm and them decel down, I am bound to have a very large explosion and flames coming out the exhaust. It is fairly controlable, I find the biggest problem is when I am trying to be very quiet, like when in Downtown Vancouver, when you try to be very gingerly on the throttle, it pops and backfires. Like I said best to be on the throttle or off. :)
