El Tigre -Need Help

Having problems with my '79 Arctic Cat El Tigre. It starts without any problems. Then, when I start to throttle it, the engine boggs down and doesn't have any power. It doesn't stall, just no power. Plugs are fine, replaced fuel and added de-icer. Any suggestions? Please help. Thanks!

Years ago I had a '81 El Tigre that had a similar problem. After checking the plugs, gas, etc., I took the carbs off and cleaned them. Ta Da! Try it and see if it cures the problem.

Try removing your rubbers from the carbs to the breather box and see if that makes a difference and if that does, your breather box has to be pulled out and taken apart and cleaned. There is a metal grater in there that plugs up. Would like to know if I'm right. Thanks.
