    Sport bogging out/powerless after riding a bit

    Hey guys, my sport is bogging out and acting powerless after riding for 15min, or so
    when you mash the throttle it just bogs out, loses power going up hill, and it gets worse as you
    Continue riding, first you can get all the way up to 60, then after awhile it's hard to see 40
    After that your lucky to see 20mph, I'm not throwing any codes and the machine only has 570 miles
    On it, belt is fairly new, 28in tires and snorkled any help or ideas is much appreciated. I've been through every electrical connection, cleaned and dielectric greased all of them

    Is it a slow steady bog or does it sputter? at any rate it's power loss, so maybe check out the stator?

    Also did you do anything to the machine before it started this?

    Check your gas tank vent, loosen the gas cap and see if it helps.

    Slow steady bog, as if say your weed eater or chainsaw was gummed up and you try to mash the throttle it just goes blahhh.

    Not that I can recall exactly, or honestly Tim, and it's occasionally and intermittent issue.

    Fuel pump could be bad. if you don't mind a light gas mess to clean up, you could remove the line and then turn the key. Then observe if it shoots the gas out with good force. I did that once, was rather surprised the force the pump had. It's not too hard to do, but getting that clip out requires two micro screw drivers, or something to that effect, to push at both ends of the clip at the same time. And try not to break it... it could be hard to find that size anywhere in town.

    Jesse I actually had my entire fuel system apart trying to check it out, I did do this yes I believe it operates at 43psi, I did the fuel line re route as well, she's at the dealer now trying to replicate this system and pull some data on a laptop.

    I know that feeling. Had the big clutch issues many of the older Trails suffer from. Local dealer couldn't get it to replicate, hugely frustrating. Ended up talking with MLS, where I bought the machine from, and they took care of me. I would definitely check those plugs. I had one that wouldn't seat for me at all, had to put my entire body weight on the thing several times before it finally clicked on the plug. You can definitely hear/feel a noise. Also if you're running on 1 plug the exhaust, especially looking down in the end of it, will be cherry red after running a bit.

    Check those boots again, I had an intermittent idle issue that I was sure was a fuel or tps problem. Turned out one of my spark plug boots was loose and not making connection. It finally went from intermittent to constant when it completely melted one of the boots. Mine did it the first time I had the machine out and gradually started doing it more often as time went on. This tells me that the boot was loose or faulty from the factory.
