My youngest rides a 200 Z440.  His is just broken in (500 miles) and he can
hit 65-75 top speed, depending on snow conditions.  My advice is to run
through the standard diagnostics:

1) Check the plug color.  Are the electrodes medium tan?

2) Check the compression, and is it equal both cylinders?

3) Are both cylinders getting spark?

Then report back to RSS with some data we can use to help you troubleshoot
the problem.  If it's still under warranty, haul it to the nearest dealer
right now; don't let the warranty expire while you try to fix it yourself.

My buddy's Z440 had a mouse nest in the air box this winter when he got it
out.  It wouldn't let him get above 40mph until he cleaned the air box out.
