Help!!! Ltz400
Hi new to this forum and to owning a ltz400 so would be grateful for any hints or tips!! I have a bit of a problem with it! I took it out for a run today fist time in about 4week! And I had a bit of trouble starting it witch I put down to it not being run in a few weeks so put it down to the battery! Anyway got it going and off I went pulled strong in all the gears till I got in to 5th and really opend it up witch it then started to bog down and cut out!! And would not start agin! Got it started of a bump start! then same agine run strong till I hit 5th gear then bogged down and cut out! And would not start off the button! Any ideas??

Fuel tank vent kinked or pinched? Fuel line to carb, pinched or kinked or even cracked. Float set too low? Try a new spark plug, even. My gas Arctic Cats will act wonky if I run em low on gas and don't switch to reserve. It could even be a weak coil or a voltage rectifier (regulator) going bad. I suppose even needing a valve adjustment...
