    • I wasn't saying tear the top end off or anything like that. I always adjust valves as part of a complete tune up on any ATV or whatever i'm working on. On these models while your adjusting valves it takes an extra 5 minutes to check the cam and followers by simply removing four bolts and lifting off the followers. You don't have to remove the cam or cam chain or mess with the cam timing or anything. Then you can at least rule out the cam as being a possible issue. Flat or rounded off cams were somewhat of a problem on these engines in the past. That's the only reason i mentioned it. Machines would not accelerate,no power, etc, but they will idle and sound perfect,no ticking or rattling to speak of.  Again this , and everything else mentioned in the post , is just part of a thorough tune up,no major surgery here. I also make it a point to check the charging system during a tune up. An overcharge condition can be very easily mistaken for carburetor problems or ignition problems. A big wasp nest in the muffler will cause lost of head scratching too!! Like i said earlier i'm not saying this is whats wrong with your bike for sure, just something to keep in mind while your tuning.
    • Thanks for all of the helpful tips and ideas! I wish i could work on it right now but the weather isn't agreeing with me (Wish i had a nice garage lol). I'll definitely go at it once this rain lets up. I've messed with the carb so much but from what I've read off this forum i'll tear it down again and correct the air/fuel screw and also run seafoam afterwards. If it still runs the way it does right now ill correct the timing and checks the cams! I'll also check the belts while i'm at it.
    • thanks for the great explanations guys!
    • I did find one on there but it was bad shape
