So, over the winter this thing has been causing me some serious headaches. The thing starts great, give it a bit of gas and it takes off nice, but then bogs to maybe 1000 RPM at WOT. I thought it was the cold but thats not it since its like 50 out now. I think its getting too much gas because I shut the gas off and let the carb drain and it takes off untill it runs on fumkes, let it fill again, and bog. help please.

pop off the car bowls, clean, replace anything that looks shot. if float sticks this is a common problem

Never would have guessed it, but I googled the problem and a few places had the same thing saying it was the air filter. So, last night I took the filter out and it started right up and ran BETTER thaan when we got it. So, now I need to get a new filter and then everyhting should be good as new. But now that it goes full speed, I need to fix the brakes since the hydraulic system doesn't work at all. It has a rear brake but that isn't sufficient.
