Aloha from Hawai'i folks. Ok, I have a 2000 blaster that was given to my daughter a few months ago. It hadn't been ran in a few years before that. Changed oil, changed spark plug, cleaned carb. Boom, started right up. Ran great for a couple of months. Then, mid-trail one day just started bogging out. Starts fine. Idles fine. Will rev up fine in neutral. Once in gear it'll get going, but start bogging out soon after. Also blows lots of smoke out the exhaust, but I've been playing with the oil ratios so didn't know if it's related to the bigger problem. So far I've tried:
-disconnected the tors. (Wire by the throttle, carb, and box under the hood)
-reeds are fine
-rebuilt carb
-changed both crank seals
-new cylinder, piston and rings. (Compression was 70 psi before changing. Haven't checked again after, gotta go borrow the gauge).

Kinda stumped. Any other ideas??? Mahalo in advance??

sounds like a bad ring to me better go get the gauge just to be sure. it could be your ratio as well. sometimes a compression test is not enough you may need to do a leak down test. youtube blaster leak down test and there is a good video. just for grins did you check all the wheel bearings
