"Cleanup 9" so pretty much as cast. Can poor packing in the silencer cause poor performance? Mine has some loose rivets that might be letting some pressure through.

I think it could in a sense. Be like shorting the stinger. I could be thinking wrong. But definitely something to look at.

You could definitely benefit from having someone work on the cylinder than

I will give Mr. Arlen and Mr. Pete a call and see how they feel about re working the 9 port. That would be a nice option.

Temp and humidity dropped significantly around here last week and it seems that my R is running well. I'm going to do some plug chops when the temp is 60 degrees and see what it looks like.

I let a friend take it for a spin (hardcore 4 stroke guy) and he came back smiling. He's the 3rd friend I've talked into buying a quad so I have a decent little crew together.

I also tried my hand at 2 wheeled donuts lol

Looks good! Years ago when I was just learning maintenance basics I decided to try repacking the (now vintage) RPS silencer that was on my R when I bought it. The old packing didn't look all that bad but wow, what a difference in performance new packing made. Since then it's one of the first things I do to any two stroke I work on. It certainly can't hurt!

Good to know Tosaw! I will get it repacked. I fairly certain it is blown out.
