    Usually spark plugs/coil issue I believe. I had a similar issue on mine when in low rpm. Replaced the plugs and all was well.

    Sorry for the late reply, It was blowing from the backbox then it decided to just fall off its only jerked once but it was really bad and was in low revs. New spark plugs and ht leads maybe?
