Recon Help!!!

Im having a couple of problems with my 2005 Recon. Everytime i go in water it cuts off. It doesnt matter if its 2 inches deep or 2 ft deep. And it doesnt matter if its 100 degrees or 20 degrees outside. Also everytime you get on the throttle hard or your trying to get out of a hole and going up a steep hill it cuts off. Any Suggestions????

Take your carb off and give it a good cleaning, and make sure to clean the jets. Mine did the same thing and it was as simple as that. Also make sure all of your vent lines are clear of junk too.

I had the exact same problem with my recon, turned out it was water slashing up hitting the spark plug. Made it cut out and die then wouldn't have any power for be next 5 minutes. Then the next puddle it would do it again, for real old real fast....dialectric grease fixed of though.
