dirtybird...
did you ever figure out what the problem was? I am having almost the same exact problem and I am pulling my hair out. The only difference is mine is a 4 stroke. Let me know if you ever found out anything before i throw mine off of a cliff. Thanks

Update.....
Did somemore checking today and took it to a friends father that works on bikes and quads and took him all of about five minutes to figure out the problem...
The quad had no compression and we found that the intake valve is stuck open. Not to sure if something got stuck in there to keep it open or if the valve is bent. Now need to take the head off to make sure there is not anymore damage to the valve seat or anything else. Wish me luck...

dirtybird...thanks for the reply, but as you can see I have a whole new set of problems
