Hey all!! This is my first time joining a forum and am looking forward to being a member of this site, and am hoping to chat with some cool people!

I live in foothills of the rockies in Alberta, and am quickly becoming an ATV enthusiast! I have learned that if you dont have one around here, you are going to be a lonely fellah !! lol

I bought a 2003 DS650 and love it! Its the perfect quad for my size(285lbs) while staying in a sport quad riding style.

Its in amazing shape and runs great, but I am having an issue with it 'Snuffing' when its under load in 1st and 2nd gear at low RPM's.
If i let it bring up the RPM not under load it responds fine, however if i crack on it on a flat, or at the bottom of a ditch, it really hesitates and sputters and i have to feather the throttle to get the RPM up. It really gets up and goes in every gear, and does not backfire, it idles really smoothly, and hits full speed just fine.The plugs are burning clean and are brand new, and it behaves the same with new or old plugs. It is bone stock other than a clean K&N air filter.

It starts fine, dont even need choke. Im not sure what other ground I need to cover in terms of details.

I have not torn down the carb yet either to find the jet sizes , but have ordered a Jet kit because it came from Edmonton which is a lower altitude than Hinton which is where I live. The elevation in Hinton is 3300 ft above sea level. If anyone knows the proper jetting for that elevation i would aprreciate some input.

I know this is a long post, but i wanted to get my foot in the door on a pleasant side!

If anyone can offer me some advice, this would be great!!

Also, if this post is not in the proper area, i would not be opposed to the Mods moving it for me!

Thanks lots!! , Ian
