    Please help

    Hello, I am new to the board and I am having problems with my 04 RXP. I previously posted and got a couple of ides and did those but here is where I am at now.

    This is a 04 RXP with 72 hours with Riva stage 1 kit and rear exhaust.

    Ski was cutting out while riding and would barely idle and usually died unless I was giving it gas. It started doing it at the end of last year. The maintence light would come on for a minute and then go off. I would have it full throttle and it would only go about 55 and then all of then sudden it would clear up and take off like a bat out of hell and them cut out some more.

    I took it out this year and the same thing but worse. I pulled the supercharger off and sent it to jerry for new washers and bearings. I put the SC back on and it would only act like it was going to start and then the starter would run on until I let go off the start button and then it would would do the same thing again. Then I was trying to start it again and a HUGE backfire happened and now it won't turn over. Anyone have an idea what it is?? Thanks

    Well what have you tested or replaced? Have you eliminated any possibilities?

    Like I said b4, check-replace coils...u got at least 1 bad 1.......if u been spraying that motor and not tightning the hell out of the plug gap (.025)the coils are gone. The stock gap is fine, but when u add spray to moderate boost, the cyl. pressures get WAY up there, spark has a harder time jumping .035 and larger gaps. This WILL cause arc to occur where the coil meets the plug..........cooking the coil................of course, this is only my opinion...and u know what those are like . I don't gamble, but I got money to put on this
