  • Carburetor popping discolored air filter

    Hey friends,
    my carburetor makes a loud pop every couple minutes or so. Also my air cleaner was red now looking faded and blackish. What's the deal please help??

    Do you service the bike yourself? Do you have a k&n air filter? If so, the red on the filter could be the oil that is used to recharge the filter. It has a red color and will be bright red if you put too much oil on the filter. It will become black once it is dirty. Sounds like your carb needs some cleaning, rejetting or gasket sealing. The experts will chime in here. I have a fuelie.

      your profile says your jetting is stock, is that correct? did this just start or have you recently done some work on the bike?

        Popping could be a cracked enrichener cover. Common thing.

          We are all assuming that there was nothing done recently. All of a sudden this just started happening, no maintenance or no nobody touched the bike. We're also assuming that you have fresh fuel in the gas tank and the bike hasn't been sitting for an extended period of time. We're also assuming the bike didn't get soaked in the rain . We're also assuming the bike has has had a historical history of proper maintenance. So tell us more

            Also we are assuming that no one snuck some Orville Redenbacher popcorn into the carb.

          Always start with the simplest cure first . you can pick up a K and N cleaner kit for $20 , good for a couple of cleanings. instructions in kit, pretty straight forward
