I have a 99 wrf and it will just die, when traveling on road wide open, sounds and feels like its running out of gas. Once stopped it kicks and starts again with some work. Any ideas to the problem? i adjusted float height but still have same issue. This never happens while on trail only on long wide open runs!!!

Please Help!! :)

Check fuel line routings and tank and petcock. Actually start from the bowl and work your back, obviosly your runnin out of fuel somewhere.
