2012 Stella 150 4T

PostPosted: Tue May 31, 2016 8:26 pm    Post subject: Bogging down in 4th Reply with quote

I have a 2012 Stella 4T 150
Everything has been running great lately, I had a clutch cable snap a couple days ago and I ran a new one through.
Since then, I seem to have a weird issue.
It seems that in 4th gear, it boggs down almost like its flooded?
Then it gets tough to start right after I shut it off.

Any ideas?

It's possible the cable is too tight. Does it creep when in 1st gear but with the clutch pulled in?

Any updates on this thread? I'm having a similar issue in 4th gear. Perhaps the engine is either choked for air or starved for fuel, I'm not sure which. It seems to happen most when I'm cruising at 40-45 rather than running full out. And, for whatever reason, it does not happen in other gears.

I am sad to say, that it is possible, that it is running full out at 40 to 45 miles an hour. That's one of the reasons I got rid of my 2010 for stroke, because it was a pooch. It was slower than molasses and it ran great, it was just too damn slow.
I put on a straight pipe rejected the carburetor and it didn't do any difference except made it a little louder.
If you want speed, get you a p 200 2 stroke.
The transmission is geared different and you will do 60-65 miles an hour easy.
