Starts and idles perfectly. But full on the throttle I'm getting about 23 mph. It will occasionally perhaps when i hit some bumps give me power back. Its backfiring a little bit as well.
I feel like one of the plugs isnt firing or timing is off? There isn't any sputtering and it feels good just no power.
I'm a motorcycle guy so atvs are a little different to me. Any ideas where to start are appreciated. I'm going to swap plugs, clean air filter, check fuel lines and compression.

Check your plug wires real good, from CDI all the way to plug. Sounds like you've got a borderline connection/plug wire that's just hanging on, and bumps temporarily restore a good fire.

There was a TSB out for the speed sensors for our bikes .
It sounds like a broken wire or a loose connection somewhere to me though .
