    The intake valve seat may be damaged which doesn't allow the valve to seal properly causing the fire to travel back through the valve chamber and into the carburetor. If you buy a repair manual for your engine it would tell you how to check the valves but if not I would suggest that you take it to the dealer and let them fix it.
