Hey guys ,,, been a while ,,the ol machine was running great all this time until now ,,, i parked it in the building a few wks ago,,, About 3 - 4 wks it sat there until the other day i took it out for a spin ,,,,, it takes its gas good until i hit around 40mph (3/4 --wide open) than cuts right out !!! if i slack off and hit it again it will take its gas than few sec later start bogging out again ??(around the 40--45 mph mark) ,,, ,,, Fr a dead stop u can floor it,, hold it wide open and will work good ,, it seems like once it hits 35 -- 40 mph just cuts out ???? I cleaned the Air filter & carb (even tho carb was clean) Changed spark plag and still does it ,,, n e ideas ?????

thanx
Brian

Change your spark plug... that's my first suggestion. If that doesnt' help, pull the carb and spray it out with carb cleaner real good. Check the float wile you're at it and also the vacuum slide.

See all along your quad was just trying to keep you safe, now you get to much power and you crash, what good did all that extra power do anyway. Just kidding. You OK?

Dont feel bad.. I was in the local POPO shop today.. Guy came in with a front box to a 08 sportsman and a front nose clip, totally busted to heck..
