Just did tons of work on this bike. runs ok, but I think it can run better. Sometimes when I start it, it will backfire once. Never done that before. Also, i took the plugs out and they are super clean. I set the pilot screws at the default 3 turns out from seated. I cant find any vacuum leaks. Does it sound like its running lean? What advice to you guys have?



I need help. :?

Lean running doesn't normally cause backfiring, but running too rich might. Did you look at the spark plugs yet for clues?

Plugs are super clean. Too clean, I think. That is what got me thinking is running lean. The backfiring is super minimal. Only did it a couple times.

The pilot screws are for idle only.. Too lean with these screws might cause a hesitation or a "pop" backup through the intake, but the plugs would not be a goodindication of idle condition (unless you spend all of the time idled).. If, in fact, it is lean during riding, it is more likely a float level and/or other fuel delivery issues.
