    I was having problems with it as it was losing out on power origanly then got worst still started up. I then had a marine mechanic come over took off the carb cleaned it then as we were putting it back together we found a piece of plastic like some linkage or something that fell off that needed to be put back on with a clip. Then is was fine...Anyway I was riding in it the other say and it went 50 feet and died then it wouldnt start NOW WHAT?

    squeeze you ball and if gas comes out where the gas line hookds up to the motor that is your problem. mine did the same thing but it was not hardly leaking anything and was getting air in the gas line. If not that check all gas filters. sounds like a gas problem

    the vent cap I am assuming that is on top of the gas tank lid. The little thing you can open or close it...that's open going to try some things tonight or tomorrow

    Glad you found it. That is one of the first things I look for. My previous post comment was
