I have a 85 fl350 it starts fine, idles fine. Just when i get into high rpm it sputters and knocks.I replaced the whole ignition system, and cleaned the carb top to bottem. Dont know what it is.Need help,this thing is driving me crazy.

Is it possible the jetting is too rich?
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

Knocking is not good. I agree with odypiots. Check the jetting. I think you might be on the lean side instead of rich though. Check this site to learn about jetting a 2-stroke.
