First off, Welcome to the forum! you definitely came to the right place to ask questions about your raptor. If you're having problems in the top ends of your gears i'd say you probably have a jetting problem... WillyKiller is the man to talk to about jetting

Welcome to the Forum :D
Definitely sounds like a jetting issue. Sounds like you are a bit too lean on the main jet, you might want to consider bumping it up a couple sizes....

Is it stock or has mods to exhaust/intake? If stock, carbs are dirty, time for a good cleaning. If modded, cleaning may still be required, but it may be jetted incorrectly too.

ok so my raptor had some home made mods from the original owner he chopped off the front fenders he also chopped the stock pipe almost in half and took out all stuff from the inside....well about an hour ago i opened the air box found the box completely disconnected from the carb so i put it back together and now it runs fine the air box was missing both of the bolts that hold it in place so im sure that wiggle off the carb but any way thanks every one for your hlep
