    Unhappy 2000 virage misfires at high speed

    I have a 2000 virage 700 two cyclinder. Starts great, Idles great.Rear cyclinder misses at high speed aprox 7500 rpm. I changed the spark plugs and wires. The clock shows 68 hrs.
    I believe I have the generation III ignition, Two black and white wires to the coil.It takes the fuel carb has been rebuilt. It sounds to me like an electrical problem . Any ideas on the subject???
    Thanks in advance

    If you are getting 7500 RPM you are hitting the rev limiter. That motor should run 6500-6700.

    so I would be safe to say the misfire is designed as a saftey feature to keep the motor from over reving and causing damage.

    The only way the RPM can get that high in the water is if the impeller is badly worn, is the wrong impeller entirely, or the drive line is slipping.
