Check your pulse coil and that it is around .010"  to .013" also check your spark plug gap and make sure it's around .018 to .020" see if that helps..

Puma keeps running away on alky but when I purge it with gas it idles and stays running.
Its not as hard to start as I thought it would be.

Fatten your needle up a couple turns then start backing (leaning) it out a half turn at a time till you get closer to it's happy spot then you can go in 1/4 turn increments to fine tune it..

Sure is. The mid to top end is crazy. Pulls so hard. She beat my bro's jerry hall lt 500 dyno'd at 75hp and I think I was a little lean, highest jet I could find was 220 still a little a learn, she ran good but would fall on face until 1/4 throttle. Never got hot though.

How does this sphinx compare power wise to your last one?? Not reliability, we know where you stand on that...Lol I was curious if your first sphynx was as quick..

Introductions / New member thanks

Your video is set to private.... Geeze.......

Glad you figured it out..

Also check for fuel flow.. If your tank vent isn't breathing well enough eventually your tank will create a vacuum and starve your carb of fuel.. Pull the fuel line and let it drain the entire tank into can to see if your getting a vapor lock or poor fuel flow..

The liger is flat out ripping the cr 500 cases apart.. After a liger completely destroyed a set of lt 500 cases, Pete built a 1/2" steel adapter plate to prevent making welds on the lt cases and to stiffen the whole set-up up.  It still destroyed cases and twisted the steel plate over a 1/4". It doesn't matter what rod you use, that doesn't change your displacement. I haven't heard anyone using the ktm rod on the saber, only the artic cat rod and cr 500 rod.. My saber has ran the same cr500 rod for the last 8 years and is finally receiving a new one as we speak. Pete prefers the cr 500 rod simply due to rotating mass since it's 1/2 the weight of the artic cat rod (not literally 1/2, but a lot lighter).. My motor is currently a 532cc 97x72mm and on top of running methanol I've also put a 50hp shot of nitrous to it without hurting the cr500 rod, so I would think it'd be up to the challenge for any dune set-up.. Oh and my cylinder was one of the very first sabers cylinders and was a 95mm bore. Pete bored it for me to 97mm. They are all the same castings..

Got the pipe back from chrome and the cylinder polished up.

You should try some of those pumashine exhaust hangers, cause your current system looks sketchy...:smug:
