Sounds like an instant trip to the dealer to me! I of course am assuming you haven't done anything to it like snorkle or pipe or jetting.
No trip to the dealer,to much of a run around,I cracked open drain plug in the bottom of the carb and gave a little squirt on carb clean,let sit and fired up,sputtered a bit and is running fine.Can`t believe the power compared to the 450es.
