2004 Sportsman 700 EFI - Bogs down as if out of gas

477 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  RandMan
my machine bogs down as if out of gas after about 3 miles of riding. The motor seems strong but after the 3 miles it starts sputtering as if bad gas. It will eventually stull out. I wait about 30-60 seconds and starts right back up with no issues. Thought it was the fuel filter, so changed it but still does the same thing. Also replaced the gas and added seafoam still no difference. Has anyone else experienced this type of problem?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Yep - usually a failing fuel pump causes the problem
Thanks for the feedback. Ordered a new pump. Hopefully solves the problem
check the fuel pressure most likely the pump
Thanks for the info. Just ordered a new pump. Hopefully solves the problem
