The other day I was riding and I shut my bike off and when I want to start it again it started first kick like always and idled fine but when I gave it gas it bogged and shut off and wouldn't start. I jumped started it and it started but when I gave it gas it back fired and bogged. I was told it was the reeds and I was thinking that also but when I checked them they seem to be fine, no chips or gaps. could it still possibly be the reeds or could there be another culprit?

One simple thing to check is fuel tank vapor lock, especially if you have one of those "trick" stubby fuel cap hoses. Try it with your cap off, or vent hose removed.

Good luck!
