"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.

Action69 sent me a bracket for my rear caliper, thanks again. Always good to do business with you. Can't wait to have back brakes again haha.

I got some riding in yesterday by myself and had a good time. Every thing seems to be working well. I still have a small to do list, but unfortunately I'm looking for a tow rig right now and it isn't going well thus far. So the R is on the back burner for a bit now. Just riding it around my place on weekends and enjoying the weather. Once I have a truck I will be planning a ride. We still plan to try for Land Between the Lakes on Thanksgiving.

I'll upload some pics and vids of our awesome trip this weekend, but first I had an issue that randomly left us stranded for 30 minutes.

I had been doing some good 3-5th gear wheelies, set it down and was cruising 4th and it just shut off and coasted to a stop. I kick and kick and kick, nothing. Check that carb is getting fuel. I did not stick my finger in the spark plug cap, but I should have to verify spark. I hop on and the next kick it cranks right up but immediately bowwww, bowwww and dead. Does this off and on a few more times then it fires up, revs clean and I took off. We rode the rest of the day, got caught in a storm and rode the streets 12 miles back home in pouring rain with zero issues.

Just curious if this is something you OG's have seen before and can maybe help point me in the right direction. I immediately thought electrical problem, but when it would fire up and immediately go dead it sounded like it was fuel starved.

I would think a bad electrical connection somewhere

Check all electrical connections. I would guess one of the small coil wires has a sloppy connector.

Ok I will go through the wiring thoroughly. Hopefully I can find something that sticks out so that I can be confident that it's fixed.

Thanks for the help guys.

I would definitely check the spark plug cap. Maybe cut a little bit off the wire and reinstall the cap.if you have the length to loose.

I didn't even think about that. I've got plenty of slack.

I wonder if water got in some where and gave intermittent problems. Possibly between two connections.
