ok the other day i was out riding a wheelie across a field and she died on me. it was still running but had no power wat so ever. i emptied the tank think that it was bad gas but that wasnt it. It will run and rev up when out of gear and sitting there once i putit and gear and go to get on it, it runs a like 1/4 of the power. a buddy of mine said it might be the coil or rev box, but not sure which, any help who be great

Thats what lead me to believe clutches.They were under power and something malfunctioned.And you said outa gear it rev's fine but when in gear it falls on it's face.I could be completely wrong on this one.

i honestly dont think its the clutch i never have had any problem with it before and it works fine now it has to be something in the electrical system

Well check the voltage readings like moose said.I'm probably wrong.Moose has a lot more time at this than I do.

I think while up on a wheelie you picked you a piece of trash in the main jet that would explain the black plug your restricting airflow somewhere or you may have just fouled out a plug it happens they give no warning you know?. that would also explain why at idle you didn't notice anything even when you revved it up , the slow jet controls idle to 1/4 throttle the needle controls 1/4 to half the main covers the rest if you are at no load throttle the rev would hit before you noticed any issue unless it was really bad. when you put it in gear you put it under a load when you do that and ease on the throttle does it pull ok? and if you gun it it dies off right?

If it was a plugged jet, you would be lacking gas and cause a lean condition resulting in a white plug. The black plug is a rich condition.

You are correct my friend. maybe i used the wrong part (jet) if the Float needle is stuck it will overfuel the carb dumping raw fuel into the intake. also a clogged vent line would be worth looking into.
