It's sputtering at high rev? check the plug cap, if it's coming out a little itl do that. Maybe your carb is not set properly too, when my bikes run too rich they start backfiring and sputtering, due to the fact that it is not getting a proper full burn.

That bike makes a ton of vibrations. The coil screws provide ground for the coil and tend to rattle loose. Make sure they are tight and use plenty of locktite. Preferably red. I had the same problem with mine at one point and spent a lot of time trouble shooting everything except that. Then while i was tinkering with it trying to solve the problem, i noticed the coil mounting screws had come loose. I tightened them up and all of a sudden, problem solved.

Also gaskets are super simple, why spend money on them? Just use an old ceral box (compressed cardboard) and cut them out yourself. Once you have the gasket cut out, soak it in USED motor oil for a 2-3 hours. This prevents the gaskets from burning and also makes them soft and pliant. Used motor oil has a higher flash point than fresh oil and makes them last. And under mechanical compression, they will not burn anyways. Once the cardboard has soaked up the oil, they make an excellent seal.

I use this technique to make head gaskets, case gaskets, intake gaskets, and just about any gasket you can think of.

Oldest trick in the mechanics hand book.

Personally, I would never use cardboard on a bike like that. I got a whole real Polini upper gasket set from midsouth for around $10, has everything you need and 3 thicknesses of base gaskets to adjust your Squish, I used the .004" one on my Polini rep engine.

I have the same bike in dark blue. Tsunami bike calls it a g2 or something like that. Its has the GP3 rep engine on it and I have put new upgraded bearings, seals, and homemade gaskets on the whole thing. It is hard to find parts for sometimes. I bought it as a "basket case" and reassembled the whole thing like a jig-saw puzzle. When its running, it is my favorite bike. I gps clocked it at 43mph and I weigh about 220lbs. I have only really had 2 real problems with it. One, the water pump belt tends to break or fall off, currently trying to finalize a solution to this. Second, the pull start loves to break. The original pull start lasted about a year. After it broke i bought 3 more just in case... Well, they all were different variations and I managed to break all 3 in one race day. I finally found the exact pull start and it seems to work so far.
Mine is equiped with the 19mm del rep carb and for starting, i just block the airflow with my hand and it starts on the first or second pull.
As for gaskets, i use different thickness of cardboard to achieve the same results as a gasket set. I currently have a 0.5mm donut box head gasket on it. lol.

And for the sprocket, find a very flat surface, and hammer it gently until its flat. I use a 12.5mm thick piece of flat steel i lay my spockets and other stuff that is bent on and hammer them flat again. Don't hammer on concrete or wood.
If it is super bad, i think Tsunamibike.com carries the sprockets and they should be listed to be used on a g2.

I tried one of 15mm carbs on mine too. It was really nice but eventually i just went back to the 19mm. Btw, i like that custom swing arm. Looks awesome.
