Not had it on the AT since use Stabil ver winter but both petrol strimmers did just that this year. Rev to half way then die completely if try to rev harder. Back off revs quickly and they recover. Stripped and cleaned gummed up carbs with carb cleaner, 24 hour soak and they're working fine again.

I think I got it worked out. Routed the vent hose differently to allow the fuel supply line to rotate and tuck up against the tank and put it all back together and ran up the road trying to get it to stall at around 4500 RPM

Filled up both tanks and tried again, it revved high with no issues and the power I expected.

Glad it's working again. 🤙🏼

haha me too!

I rode back out to Roaring River with another buddy who just got a Harley and around to Holiday Island > Eureka > Hwy 12 Saturday with no problems.

Root cause: fuel starvation because I'm a bonehead and didn't pay attention to the hose routing when I installed the Camel auxiliary tank.
