I just returned from w va. Around half way through the ride my son said his 700 was cutting out in second gear. I got on it rode it like a bat out of hell up the mountain we just come down and back and it seemed fine. Towards the end of our ride about 30 minutes from the house it wouldn't stay running at all. Turns out he had fouled the plug. Earlier that day on the blacktop he was running in 3rd and 4th gear hitting the rev limiter. When I got a chance I caught up to him, and passed him and hollered fifth gear! Later I explained to him that he needed to use it, when going 55 mph! So we had no spare plug, which I will be adding to the tool box before next ride. So he ended up getting pulled back to the trailer. Atleast we were close, and it was near the end of the ride.

I didn't think the plug looked to bad, but a new one certainly took care of rhe issue.

Yeah that doesn't look bad at all, but this is good info to know to check plug first. And yeah, always carry a spare!
