My Ural Gear Up 2004 keeps on backfiring and breaks down the spark plugs, hence cannot be reliable on the road.What is causing the problem and what can I do to fix it.

What color are the sparkplugs when you inspect them? White = lean. Chocolate = jest right. Black = rich.

I suspect they're black. If so could be too rich mixture from the carburetors, or oil leaking into the combustion chamber - valve guides or oil rings.
