I am having problems with my recon it is popping out of the exhaust at idle and then cuts off after idling a little bit.

Sounds like fuel line or carb passages clogged. Is fuel old? Empty tank, clean petcock, fresh fuel with Seafoam cleaner.

If still runs rough then clean the carb

backfire is a lean condition. When you cleaned the carb how did you do it? Complete disassembly?

The jets may be clogged 鈥 i use pipe cleaners

The pilot screw may be assembled incorrectly or not set proper amount of turns. Mine had the tip of the old one broken off in the bore

The air cut valve may be involved
