Missing at steady throttle

Have a 2001 750 with 18,000 miles. Just had it tuned up because it was difficult starting. Now starts fine, good acceleration but at steady speed/throttle, engine begins to miss. Sounds like it is running out of gas. If you give it some throttle, it comes right back. Have a new maintenance free battery ordered but don't know if that is the issue. Any suggestions?

Check the vent hose that goes into the right "ear". Make sure that it is installed and not bottomed out. This is one suggestion that could cause the problem.
