Hi Forums,

I am in the 2nd tank of run in and when i was riding the bike i noticed fuel around the carb so i stopped to check it out and then when i went to start the bike again it did not have any power when i tried accelerating. Sometimes it would jump and have some power but it would make a popping noise out of the air filter.

I took the end cap off my exhaust and it wasnt clogged.
Im wondering if this could be the spark going off at the wrong time? Has anyone had this problem.

Sounds more like a head gasket leak.The head's nuts lossen up alot during break in check the torque if the torque is good then run the engine and put your hand as close as you can to see if you feel air escaping anywhere around the head to cylinder seal,they usualy leak above the ports rather than the sides but not impossible.
