The backfiring and dying while going down the road sounds like an ignition problem. A wire loose somewhere or something temporarily shorting the system out. If the engine is hard to start in gear, your clutch needs to be adjusted and it's probably dragging. Or there's too much oil in the primary making the clutch drag.

Good Luck

Ok so my Suzuki Marauder 800 backfires all the time now. It also will feel like it loose power then all of a sudden takes off.


Get the fueling set up on a rolling road. Bike makers set the fueling up to match the exhaust they fit. Your new exhaust will have less backpressure and this will cause popping when you close the throttle to slow down. It will also cause hesitation when you accelerate.

Get your battery checked. If the battery passes, make sure it is fully charged and check the charging system (stator and regulator/rectifier).

It sounds like a fuel flow restriction somewhere. Sure, it'll start every time and idle for a while but take it down the road a bit. If it quits, I'd suspect that for some reason it's not getting fuel to the engine from the tank. Loosen the fuel cap, the cap vent may be bad. The vented cap the right side tank cap. If it's fuel injected, it could be the fuel pump or something. It sounds like a fuel problem to me.

Good Luck

Why does my ttr 125 not start then backfires?


Your bike has a diaphragm on the carb. Every time you twist the throttle a shot of gas goes into the cylinder. Chances are you are flooding the engine by twisting the throttle too often. Flooding can create a backfire. Start with a clean dry plug. Twist the throttle once then leave it alone for about six kicks. Repeat the process if needed.
