New guy here. Friends 2001 500 will start and run just fine, for a few minutes. After a short time it just bogs down, when throttle is depressed, it will idle, but will not pull the bike at all. The instrument panel does not display ANY information at all. The ignition switch was replaced with aftermarket component, due to someone losing the key, put factory switch back on, with same results, no display. Carb has been cleaned, tank removed and thoroughly washed out, petcock filter checked, all clean. Have basically run out of ideas, can someone possibly point me in the right direction? Thanks ahead of time for any and all help.

On that model you'll have to look into possible Hondamatic transmission issues. They are known to fail and act like you described.

Yes it does. Starts and runs for a short while, maybe 5 minutes, then just bogs down a
nd will not pull the bike. Revs up in neutral just fine.

Does sound like a tyranny problem. What do you mean about nothing being on the display? Is it completely blank? I ask because it might be an electronic control issue. A pic of the display would be helpful
