    I feel as though everything i post on here is a question.
    You guys always have the answers for me, and I'm very appreciative.

    So my problem is....
    When I'm accelerating or holding the same speed, the motor will speed up
    but will what seems like it is choking out. It just loses power for a few seconds.. and then speeds up again.

    I adjust the jet needle on all of the different rings... No help so i put it back
    on the original ring.

    I tried moving the choke around slightly to see if that would help.

    While i was working on it i realized that the cap on my muffler end came off sometime ago. not only is it much louder, but now is having this problem.

    Would it be compression related?

    Even with all the problems I've had, I have to say that its worth it.
    Out of all the hot rod cars, and motorcycles I've had... Ive never had this much fun.

    Thanks guys.

    maybe you arent getting enough gas into the bowl try to stabilize your filter from flapping and churning the gas to bubbles...

    Back pressure is critical for 2-strokes,not as important for 4-strokes.
    Fab a cap or try to get a replacement & see how your bike goes then.
