Engine "pop" blipping throttle from idle

Now that I go to track sometimes with my Aprilia RSV 1000, I try to quickly accelarate (clutch lever engaged of course) before descending a gear to reduce engine braking and control rear wheel.

On the road, I'm training to do it right with my VTR.
But, 20 to 30% of the time, when I use to throttle to take more revs just before downshifting : the engine does a "pof" sound and does not take revs.
Am I doing something wrong ? (It never happens on my RSV 1000 ..)

Re: Changing gears down with gas, engine sometimes do a &quo

I may have badly explained ...

To reduce engine breaking and avoid blocking rear wheel during high braking and quick downshifting, you do have to :

- brake firmly and doing that :
- dis-engage the clutch
- Open throttle for the engine to take more revs (as it is like on neutral)
- down shift
- re-engage the clutch
and so on until you reach the right gear.

You cannot downshift quickly and avoid rear blocks if you don't do that specially on a big V-twin bike.

My problem is : Sometimes, when I open throttle, the engine does not take revs and instead do a "pop".

Re: Changing gears down with gas, engine sometimes do a &quo

You think I need to shim up my needles ?
I'm completetely stock (airfilter/exhaust/jets/pilot screws/etc)
It's a 2001 model.

Can you explain a little more how you brake and downshift ?
You downshift several gears without reengaging the clutch ?
So You don't use engine breaking at the rear wheel ?

I admit it depends how quickly you arrive at the turn, at which speed and gear ration you can enter it, sometimes I downshift 2 gears at a time, sometimes I do the whole thing, sometimes I just downshift normally ;-)

I've to work to do the whole thing right, so I'm training with the VTR on the road ;-) But sometimes the "pofff" sound occurs and it is even more ridiculous on the road ...

Yep lots of stuff :wink: Have to train on road with my VTR ! :wink:

What do you mean by "cracke" ? open throttle a bit and keep it or 0 throttle opened ?

Re: Changing gears down with gas, engine sometimes do a &

ok.

I has tested it again and take care of it returning home this evening.
It does it from idle too at neutral "blipping" the throttle.

It doesn't "pop" at low/mid temperature but after riding into traffic/town and at high temp (100c) it does several time.

Does it tell us something more precise ?

If I'm not mistaken, if it's better when it's cold, it's probably rich, although that would contradict what's been said. Is it possible the PAIR could be the culprit? My bike seems to rev fine, it's mostly stock. I don't hold the throttle open though, but sort of "rip" it to match the revs, and let out the clutch when it's where it wants to be

Re: Engine "pop" blipping throttle from idle

I've seen another thing :
blipping throttle at neutral, the revs seems to return to idle pretty slowly...

Re: Engine "pop" blipping throttle from idle

Is the pop I have blipping throttle also called "carb backfire" ?

sure thing, I love downshifting manual trannys, and the satisfying noise of blipping the throttle. Just make sure you don't overshoot your target revs, or when you let out the clutch 'while the revs are on the way up past' it will jerk ya, while if you're too low, the opposite thing will happen.

Happy downshifting!

Re: Engine "pop" blipping throttle from idle

Pair system disabled, carbs sync done.
No changes (carbs was pretty well sync'ed)
Blipping throttle at idle, returns to idle with a small step at 2000 rpm.
