    I don't feel so bad now, I did the same thing on my700 quad and couldn't figure out for the life of me what it was. Took it into the shop under warranty only to be told that I had a paper towel stuck in the intake port and that it wouldn't be covered under warranty....200 bucks later. Mine didn't rev it brains out, but had a high idle and backfired constantly along with no throttle response
