Runs for 5 minutes then bogs down.
« on: April 08, 2016, 06:07:39 PM »
Anybody figure this out yet? Ive gone digging and see this exact same thread 5 or 6 times. And nobody ever comes back and says that they fixed it or what it turned out to be.  These people are all most definitely very clearly having exactly the exact same very specific problem. Has anybody definitively figured out the "runs for a few minutes then slowly dies" bug yet?

its not running out of fuel. It doesnt "ying yiiiiing" like a 2 stroke running out. It sounds opposite. swampy. sick. And then it just dies

As it begins to die out... Throttle is more and more useless but it seems to idle without much struggle. 

Any help appreciated.

Gas cap vent plugged? Dies when air runs out in tank preventing fuel from flowing.
