Thanks, but no programmer. The power train is completely stock, other than gearing and tires.

Hmm. Guess it's possible, but I didn't apply the grease to the plug but the cap/coil after the plug was installed. I do think I may have put too much in there, and without knowing a whole lot about how electrons travel from the coil through the clip/grease into the electrode at high rpms, I could have caused this with my ham fisted grease application. Maybe.
