Intermittent Power Loss
Was riding yesterday and had a bad problem. Power would cut out all of a sudden, right after running full speed and after I reduced the throttle and then increased throttle again. Severe bog. Engine would not die, just didn't have power. 1st time it happened I thought I seized the engine. Seconds later it ran great again. It did this 1/2 dozen times over about an hour. Didn't do it every time. Did a couple of more runs - no problem. Then it would happen again. Otherwise ski is running really good - upper 70's, upper 7200's. Not sure where to start checking. The last 20 minutes of riding I tried to duplicate the problem again and it never reoccurred. It never picked up a trouble code. Plugs look good, good compression. Any ideas?

If it isn't a fuel problem (low gas, etc), it sounds like a lean seizure. You'd better look into this before you spend another day doing this.

What you described sounds exactly like a lean seizure. Good luck.
