    1999 1050 backfiring ?????

    hey guys , my father in-law picked up this 1050 for $600.00 .
    the ski looks in very good cond. all around ...... but the guy got rid of it b/c the mfd went out and the motor started to back fire .

    any idea how deep this could get bringing this ski back to life ? the mfd isn't so much of a concern as is the backfiring. Timing issue ?

    backfiring? or burping out of the carbs?

    when is ist happening? First start, consistently, after long rides, only after short rides????

    Make sure the spark plug wires and CDI+ignition coil pack are connected correctly.

    Another member is currently wrestling with a backfire on an older 1050 engine...

    Exhaust backfire, or intake/carbs backfire?

    If it is coming up through the carbs, check the reeds.

    I would check the timing. Mine backfired when I had a holed piston. Did you check compression
