Default 2000 banshee popping from exhaust

My 2000 banshee with no mods whatsoever has begun popping under hard accel from the right side cylinder. I pulled that carb apart and cleaned / rebuilt it with no change. I don't have an accurate comp tester up here at the cabin, but my shitty hf one shows both being even but it always reads low. I got around 90 psi on each cyl cold.

If I pull the choke, engine bogs as normal but no pop. It is kind of a foo-POP! Right off idle.

Quad has fresh gas, tank looks clean, and it has a newer air filter. Spark plugs are also new.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oil burners and I have never gotten along...

Sounds like low compression.

I would check the tech section over at www.bluetraxx.com if they don't have the answers they can't be had.

Yetti I will try them.

My 'shee only has around 9 good runs on it. I want to pretend that they are reliable.

I'm 99% certain it's the compression. Might be low on one or either side. Bettter to fix it sooner so you don't have to buy new pistons and head due to damage. You might get away just honing it and getting new rings.
