So me and my two buddies went out yesterday and had a blast.  We were ripping all day until around 3 when my friend who also has an outlaw, kept having issues with power loss and backfiring.  The whole day his machine was running perfect, and then out of no where it started bogging randomly.  We checked the air filter first to make sure there was no water entering through the filter and then we drained the carb to make sure there was no water in there as well.  We were riding mostly muddy trails (will post video later), and snow.  

He is not a member on here yet (though i have him rocking a PPR sticker!), he wanted to see if you guys have any input as to what the issue could be.  He is going to swap in a new spark plug tonight and just give everything a once over.  On a side note, i tried to get a video of his machine backfiring as it kept making a sick blue flame lol, probably a bad thing but looked awesome lol.

Here is the video by the way:

I had an almost identical issue with a predator and it turned out to have a few of the dummy light wires smashed and randomly shorting out. On another predator I had a few of the rectifier wires rubbed through and shorting out randomly.
