Airbox fire 93 GSX750F - rode home after

Hello,

Not exactly a gixxr.

Not sure what caused this.

Went to pass, bike got hot, I pulled over and it started smoking. I found some water and splashed at it. When I felt like it was safe I started it up and rode it 10 miles or so back home.

You drove it home????

Better pop the head to see if that that crud, ash and molten plastic hasn't F-ed up anything

The cause? flooded carb, stuck valve, dead sparkplug

But right now, the biggest problem is what has happend after your engine sucked up a burnt airbox for 10 miles

Maybe carb backfiring? Check your cam timing. Mine did this when intake cam was 1 tooth off.
