Popping on decel, lean like conditons after crash.

Recommended Posts

My bike took a pretty hard spill over the weekend, enough to bend the subframe a bit. Other then a slightly bent subframe, a tire, and a mirror, it started right up after the get off and everything.

Took it out to make sure the suspension was all in check and nothing else was wrong once up to speed and everything. The first thing I noticed is that it's popping on decel like mid-lower RPM's like crazy. I suspected a torn carb boot, or maybe the carb was literally off the boot. It all looks completely fine. No holes in my exhaust, header, etc. The bike runs just fine, still has great power, twice in a 45 minute ride only under WOT it cut out for a split split second and kept pulling to redline. I'm not too sure what this could be. Is it possible for a jet to fall out or get clogged if it took enough of a hit?

 

Thanks for any suggestions, spent my day off just trying to hunt down this gremlin with no success.

If it where me I'd take the carb out.

Check for holes or tears in the boots. 

Check the jets and the fuel mixture screw.

Also check the floats and needles.

 

Hopefully its just an air leak.

 Also check the clamp that joins the muffler to the headpipe
