    Ya. I've been to 2 shops. First one deals with big dogs constantly. They both rejetted it and still had a huge dead spot 2750-3500. I just got done messing with it. And I think I fixed it by messing with the pump and idle mixture. Front cylinder looked slightly rich and back was a lil lean. I only rode it up and down the street but seems faster and running clean. I'm gonna take it around town and see how the plugs look after. I hope I have it fixed. I can be pussed at the shops but I'm happy I don't have to buy another. But we will see.
    **update**
    One thing I did not mention before is that both shops said and I had noticed a lot of deceleration backfire.
    Took the bike for a ride still spitting and sputtering it backfired through the carb a couple of times noticed on the bottom of the tank there is a capped off vacuum line and same on the carb The one from the tank was misting out fuel I stopped by AutoZone grabbed a hose and connected the two and now it seems to be running awesome. Except the idle was very low I brought the bike home and adjusted the idle speed and The issue seems to be resolved. Backfire seems to be significantly less as well
