Another problem

Im wandering if anyone else is having this problem I'm having.My bike run's great until it get's past the midway point of the temp gauge,then when I start going at a stop it starts acting like it's got bad gas and chugs and sounding like a gas knock maybe.but after its rolling the bike pulls hard and runs great.

a little info on my bike. I just replaced stator with a electrosport,new R/R ricks stock,new battery mf,relocated R/R
my volts are 13.5 at idle and 14 to 14.2 at 4k to 5k rpm bought it in march with 1,400 mil has 4,400 mil now
fresh oil rotala m10 oil filter

nothing in life comes easy

Could be dirty pilot jets. When the mixture goes lean, spark knock can occur.

The pilots handle idle and low speed, so if you're doing a lot of stop n go, the lean mix could bring the temp up some, which can also cause spark knock.
