change your spark plugs......most of the power lost involved is because of using injector cleaners and toooooooo much of ok to use it.....but it will fowl your plugs.......supper easy to change them...Note: make sure you use a spark plug socket...with the rubber insert so you dont keep dropping the plug.......just unplug the black wires one at a time and pull out the coil/plug wire.......and change them......please dont use those crappy champion plugs.....!!

SOURCE: Bike won't rev up

i have had a lot of experience in this bike, the parts are really hard to get hold of from experience. this did happen to me but mine had a 65 bore kit on it and it turned out to be the bearings. there is not much that can stop a two-stroke bike reving up like that as the mechanics inside are very straight forward. a good tell tale is to check the inside of your sump plug, if there are filings on it as it is magnetic, this is more than probably the bearings and will need rebuilding. really sorry if this is nto the answer you are looking for.

The CVT should not make noise in park. So yes, I would get it checked out.

Well if indeed you have a CVT then you don't really have gears to shift to per-se, but clearly there is something wrong with the system. If you're not mechanically inclined go to the dealer. Regular mechanics will have difficulty with uncommon systems like CVT's

Bike has been sitting without being started this winter. is it ok to start or better to have it picked up and serviced

There is no reason why it cannot be started, although you may have a bit of a difficulty doing this. As a precaution replace all the gas with fresh gas and try clear the carb/injector.

Lights dim when rpms up

Start by checking you're stator output, Put a meter on it in VAC ( Volts AC ) on the 2 wires coming out of the case ( on the left side of the bike ) run the bike General rule of thumb is 25 VAC for every 3000 rpm. ex: 25 @ 3000, 50 @ 4000, 75 @ 3000. On the older bikes as long as you're around 65 and up @ 3000 you should be good.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
