Hey all. What would cause my bike to backfire when decelerating when the engine is cold?
Ok, originally the bike didn't backfire at all. Winter hit and when it was really cold the engine would backfire just a couple times after startup when decelerating within the first minute of riding, but not after that. When it got warmer it wouldn't do it. I figured the cold was making the oils thick and making it happen, didnt worry about it too much.
Now though it's starting to do it even warm. It never lasts beyond the first couple minutes of being turned on, and they're not huge backfires, just baby farts, but it doesn't seem like a good thing that it happens every time I first start the bike up again till the engine warms up. Only when taking the throttle off.
So can anyone tell me what the likely cause of that is and what I can do to remedy it? Also, are these little backfires going to hurt the engine or parts in any way, or is it just annoying to me?
