Default 2008 keeps fouling right side plug

what is the cause of this?

bought sled used. 2500 miles. fouled right plug first ride.

right piston was realllll bad, so we re did top end. $400 still ran bad.

dealership scanned it, had a few electrical codes, said stator is bad. 100%.

we replaced stator...$200. same thing! ran rough.

took it to a local pro. he said the wiring harness is bad. replaced that. $800, t rode for 5 miles.. same thing, right plug died.

please help!!! what could it be.

DPM, fuel pump & spark plug boot would be the 1st things I would check.

I would also confirm that you have good spark & check the compression. Might also be a broken reed.

damnit, we had the jets out but I cant remember the numbers. we are at 1000-1500M.

compression seems fine via the pull start. brand new pistons.

reeds seemed fine via visual check.. not sure if they should be checked with a magnifying glass and feelers guages sorta thing.

spark seemed fine the one time we pulled plug, stuck it in the boot, grounded it, and pulled sled over.

spark plug boot and coil are the next things to guess/throw money at!!!

appreciate the advice/ tips... anything helps. keep the suggestions coming please and thanks.

bought the sled, used it once..this sucks!!!

When a sled is used I would not trust the number on a jet is true to the size. It is very easy to enlarge the orifice to compensate for low compression or an air leak. Put in a new jet the same size the other carb has and go looking for air leaks, carb boot, crank case seam, base gasket, including the seal behind the mag.

Agreed on the used machine and jetting. Replace the pilot and main jets on both sides with stock. That stock machine with DPM and stock jetting runs perfect at that elevation.

The ignition is common to both sides, so other than a plug wire/cap, IMHO you are chasing a problem most likely not in the ignition.

I would test the DPM.
Or swap the DPM from a working sled.

good answers guys. DPM seems to be a common answer..

ill order new jets and throw them in.


the mag side seal isnt perfect TBH... when replacing the stator, we did see isoflex that had leaked out to the stator case and pullstart assembly.
