I was running mid pack over 30 moto, feeling great racing bunch of x- pros, and the yama 426 started acting like it was running out of gas, popping and bogging, id have to give it gas in corners with clutch pulled so it wouldnt die, so finally died and i got passes. took me awhile to start ended up last place sucked.
