Not sure if I'm posting this in the right section, then again I don't know the problem so I guess here is a good spot.
So here is the story, I was cruising along a flat straight back road at about 50mph, mind you it is probably the only day in New Hampshire when the temp reaches 95deg, so I was cruising along running good when all of a sudden it seemed as though the motor wasn't getting any gas, though the gague says half tank. It started to bog down on me....I thought WTF! So I switched it to RES really quick and it got me another 400 ft or so, then it quit. Again, WTF! So I first made sure all of my wires were on my plugs, which they were. All good there. I had a half tank, looked in to make sure I still had some. So I tried to start it, no luck. I sat there for about 1 min to let it cool. Tried again, nothing. So I pulled back on the choke all the way and she fired right up. I let it sit with the choke open for a few seconds and then switch it closed. So now it's idleing fine and seems to be running ok. I went another half mile and filled up the tank completely to make sure that it wasn't that. I let it sit and cool down for 5-10mins and then she fired up and started no problem, like it always does.
So....now it seems to run fine, but it seems like I'm pulling a ton of dead weight behind me....maybe it's in my head.....runs fine....at the same RPM's as it usually is....gets up to speed fine and cruise great as always, just doesn't seem as snappy? Maybe?....is it in my head? Or is this just an isolated incident like I'm hoping.....any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys and girls!
