Also, have you changed the spark plugs yet? Have you changed the air filter yet? And how many miles does it have? And to answer your question is yes we do have a lot of experience with people not giving us enough information with a problem and expecting an answer.

It has been sitting for maybe a week. Always run a high test fuel non ethanol. It doesnt run very well up to the 4k rpm I have to baby the pedal at about 1/4 throttle or power loss begins. The machine itself has about 900 miles on it. Just changed all break in fluids out of it around 750 miles. I have not replaced any plugs yet and I removed and cleaned the air filter during fluid change. Also It jolts if I try to accelerate up a hill it will drop all power for a split second then come back and cut out over and over until I lay off the pedal a bit. Thanks for your support I will provide as much info as I can to help paint a picture of what's going on.
Ditch the Chinese spark plugs first of all and then report back. There is plenty of posts in the forum on plugs and type. I don' have an 1100 engine so I can't tell you much on the plug size. I think I read one time they are the same as the 800cc motors.
Isn't this also experienced when the gas overflow can gets full on the 1100's? Just thought I recalled seeing that once before.
I believe you are right. I do remember reading something about that. If I remember correctly he modified the catch can so the fuel tank with vent properly. Unfortunately I don't have the time to do a search now but you should be able to find it fairly easily it hasn't been that long ago.
Yes it seems as though it has been related to the catch can. One thing I have found out is the exhaust system is the same as the 800 and can be restrictive on that engine so adding more cylinders and potential air flow through those mufflers can cause power lost as well when hitting higher RPM's.
The past fix has been to open up the little exit pipe to allow a bit more air flow through and out.
Although since your issue seems to have developed more suddenly probably not in the mufflers as much. Also there is a catalytic converter installed with in the down pipe exiting the exhaust manifold. Some have reported better running and power when removing this. Also better plugs are a must.
