No power in 3rd

Hi, I just bought a 2007 Polaris Predator. It has a K&N air filter no air box and i was told its been jetted its also has the exhaust tip removed. It seems to run good in all gears except third, It shifts fine theres no grinding but when I shift into third and start to excelerate the motor starts sputtering and wont excelerate. Is this a tranny problem, dirty carb, bad jet job, a tunning problem or something else? Please help. Its also hard to start and cuts off alot, the carb will make a popping noise and the engine will cut off

sounds like valves need adjusted and carb needs proper jetting. hope over to Polaris Pro Riders tons of help over there.
