If the jetting is rich it will do this. How often are you at a steady throttle position anyway?

Several Guys Have Told Me It May Be Rich.i Have Moved The Main Up And Down,the Needle Up And Down And The Pilot.nothing Will Take This Out.if I Leave The Tps Unhooked It Helps It A Bunch.the Tps ,coils All Check Out Ok.
I Have A Yfz450 And Have Never Had Problems With It. This Is The First Four Stroke I Have Worked I Am Sssssssstupid.these Are Not As Easy As Two Strokes..may Be The Stock Air Filter And Box May Not Be Supplying Enough Air??

I have an oem cdi off a 04 450 you can have for 70 bucks shipped if you would like. I got the rev box and it honestly doesnt do anything for power, and I never end up needing the overrev anyway.
