Default carbs

Hey guys me again. well, here is another one of my problems. lol. well, my bike basically is missing out. it really isn't running right. It backfires but not very loud, and it is clearly having some problems. Do you think my carbs might need rejetted or synced? Or could it be a problem with the gas feed? Any help would be appreciated.

ok I am last to give repair advice....
but my old bmer used to have floats stick
I would turn gas off take them off and make sure there was not
any carbon or junk blocking or making them stick.
There are some additives you can pour into tank with some supreme
( Like Chevron with techron) that may help clean lines too.
I got some bad gas once (watered) and put dry gas in tank
and some good Hi test and ran it out never to use that
Stations brand again

check your plugs to make sure you have not foiled them
( if they are all black or oily they might be)
after that well thats why I have a mechanic I trust
Good Luck

What work have you done to your bike? i.e. new pipes. If you have not done anything then it might be your fuel filter or line. Check these before taking anything apart. It could also be an intake or exhaust leak. Use some soapy water in a spray bottle to check for leaks.

hey guys thanks i appreciate it. My bike is running great now. I went out for a good ride today, beautiful here by the way, and after about 10 minutes there was no hesitation, or anything like that. As a matter of fact, my bike has never ran this good. I probably just let it sit too long. Lesson learned. Or I had something in the system like water or something. It still needs a little work but its running like new. I appreciate it.
