I would pull the side cover. That shaft should not move much in and out, but sounds like the spring or something may have broken on the kick shaft. Does it turn the motor over when you push it down?

I feel those numbers are a little high, but I feel like there is more hp left in both builds. Different cams and intake and having them dyno tuned will find more hp than I think you realize. jmo

I agree on the stator, esp the shutting off when hot and not wanting to restart. Plus the stator will make you chase your tail thinking you have a jetting issue. Is the stator new?

So you are asking what could be making it turn over slow? You've only rode it 1 1/2 in a year? Sure battery has a good charge to it?
