sterling heights, about 30 minutes northwest of detroit. and i thought the bike was fairly warm when the problem occured. just thought maybe it was jetting. I feel stupid asking a question like this because im fairly mechanical. Im a technitian at North America's largest outdoor power equipment dealer, and only 17 years old, so its unlike me to ask a question like this. I just wanted to do everything right with my new bike!

Does it run well except on decel? The only time I see/hear flames in the silencer is when there is an ignition problem. Check the plug first.

Good luck,

FIRE HGUGHHTHGHH FIRE FIRE

5 points to the guy that figures out where that came from.

I was thinking about it today, why do we thumper guys get all worked up about popping on decel, when every single GTU car blows 3 foot of full blown flame out the pipe on decel?

Hell whats more intimidating for a two stroke guy to see? The guy that goes blowing past on a thumper, the giant flames come belching out when he forced to reel in the beast for the corner? Or some quiet smooth XLish putt putt that cruises past with a wisper? :)
