Leading a desert race yesterday, 4 miles from the finish coming uo a tight little sand was all of a sudden it died, no caugh, no sputter just off. Took me 5 minutes to get it restarted and then it ran fine. There has to be a fix other than a KTM???

Try a flywheel weight. I've got the 4oz from DR D and it lessened the stalling for me.

Thanks, I have a 12 oz, and a recluse auto clutch with the idle turned up. I talked to Ty Davis and he said they have the same problem but to try richening up the fuel needle which I did. It is better. Ty says he thinks the 05 is going to be better, not much help at this point.
