Well I think I solved a few of the issues. I changed the tires and after thought about it the throttle always seemed like it was not as smooth as it could be. Found a ton of dirt and debris in there. The grip ends were all chewed up. Cleaned it and now it's smooth as can be. The tires (haven't been out yet) were causing me to loose traction up the jumps and turns which I then compensated for by giving to much gas and looping the jump. So I will shoot a update soon. My wife and I just had our twins so riding is on hold for a little while. But again I appreciate all the helpful advice and I hope this will get my bike confidence back. Here is a pic of the tires!
