I just about scratched a hole plum through my head trying to figure this out. My bike just kept getting slower and slower. Finnally noticed that when i twisted the throttle my choke lever would raise up and choke the engine. This resulted in some serios sputtering and a slow ride. All I had to do was remove my breather and tighten the nut on the choke lever. Seems like it's always the simple things that illude me. Now I am going to attempt to find a plug wire & install that.:)

I used to have a Quad that did that...I found that the choke was so free that the vacuum would just suck it down...you'll need to stiffen that choke some how. And if the choke is not so free...then I have no ideal :)
