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?

Drain Gas tank and put new plugs in it

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
