Customer Question

I have a 2006 gator ts with a fe290 Kawasaki brand new motor. Gator idles fine and will rev fine slowly but if you mash the gas to the floor it dies. Any tips?

Check the fuel to the carburetor from the fuel pump. Is fuel filter clean? Ts shows electric pump, is it running and delivering fuel?

Haven't checked fuel filter but it is getting fuel. It will set and idle and I can slowly give it gas and it will rev up and stay revved. It is when I mash the gas to the floor in one big sweep that it dies

I would replace the fuel filter, and check the supply to the carb! I would not take it for granted. It takes small amount of fuel to idle and to run at no load, much more required when horsepower is needed.
