try unplugging your voltage regulator. might be over charging and messing with your electronic ignition, basically creating spark knock

That's a good suggestion by @karow1972 but does it sound like an engine chatter or something Iike exhaust or something else rattling around?

It might be the baffles inside the muffler..they break loose sometimes..if you take the muffler off and something is rattling around..that is the problem.

My dad's grizzly 660 had this and it was the muffler making all the racket.
