Engine miss

I have a 08 teryx i have a slight miss at idle and an little bit bigger miss around 2200rpm, you can feel it pop thru the carb plenum? I had orginally thought it was the carbs but now I think may be an engine miss. I pulled the carbs off and cleaned them out completly replaced all the fuel and fuel filter. The teryx ran great last season just trying to get it ready for this years season. If you have any advice I would appreciate it. Thanks

are you running race gas? if so it could be that ,if you let it sit to long. i learned my lesson after letting it sit for a couple of months.

also it could be that you need a air fuel meter (afm) to sync the carbs. mine also misses at low idle!

The Dynatecs have had an issue with a mis on the front cylinder. The "fix" was to buy their coils (joke if you ask me)...some units have the mis and some don't (timing issue in the CDI). Does it mis with the stock CDI installed?

I tried the stock cdi and it seemed to make it a little worse. It seems like it misses more when it warms up. I just ordered the iridrum spark plugs we will see how that helps thanks for the advice.
