I have had broken spark plug caps that are inconsistent to diagnose,maybe the carb is wide open all the time and you have a real lean mixture.

Cm 450

Another vote for the CCM 450.I'm building a big bore Dr-350 to see if that is what I will need to keep me happy. 300 lbs, decent suspension, 35-45 horse power and able to carry luggage.

1 link

Lets say 1 link of axle movement should allow you 3-4 teeth of adjustment .Ideally 1-1/3 should get you 4 teeth for sure.1 link = 2 rollers

suspension

The 98-99 350 have better suspension so that u would only need stiffer springs and lower gearing.The 650 suspension is more complicated to upgrade.
