Engine popping

Recommended Posts

My 426 has started popping and if you crack the throttle off idle it rev's very high, and wont stop until I hit the kill switch. The filter is clean and the jetting unchanged. Any Ideas? 😢

Check the carb boots, could have an air leak.

My boot ripped (on the cylinder side) when I landed off a jump too hard.

I think it was the carb boot. I was reading the instructions for the power now, and it said if the boot wasn't in the groove right the idle would be high and erratic.Thanks for your help. 😢

When was the last time you took the carb apart and cleaned it thoroughly?

If the idle is hanging as you said above, then a few things can be an issue

1: Cable can be frayed, causing the hanging

2: Dirty Carb/Clogged Pilot/Fuel Airway

3: Air leak in rubber manifold (Between Carb and Head)

4: Throttle tube is damaged and hanging

I would say its time to do a very close once over on your whole assembly Throttle tube to Carb 😢
