this still is perplaxing me. even if i take the foam filter completely out, unless i have the cartrage thingy pulled out of the slot, it 4 strokes. the entire air box is completely clean and so on and on. tonight though, i forgot i never had the cylinder off, so i coaxed it off, and sure enough the piston and rings and ring grooves were well clogged. the second ring was almost stuck solid, but i got them off and are now soaking in carb cleaner, along with the piston. the piston itself has no scoring and the bore is nice and slick. do you think this was my problem? and if so, why would giving it more raw air make it go away? it has a broken speedo cable and the odo reads about 400 miles, im thinking it broke early in its life. judging by the condition of the rings, etc. im digging the 3 transfer ports though. :)
