    I would lean toward a fuel issue. Have you checked/cleaned the carbs lately?

    What do the spark plugs look like?

    I'm with ax, check for fuel problems first. If the lines are old, filters never changed (be sure to check the internal carb filters) and the carbs not cleaned I know what I'd be doing this weekend.

    Is it possible your in limp mode? Does your fuel or oil read low? Is your temperature good, not reading overheat or anything on the MFD? Does it seem to limit RPM to 4200 RPM?
