I have a fast track with the 20 hp Honda motor. It has started to run rough and shutting off.
List of things i have done
Changed spark plugs
Cleaned Carb
Added fuel cleaner
Changed Air Filter
Changed Fuel Filter
It will run but on sharp turns spits and sputter and cuts off
It seems like it is not burning all the fuel it spit sputters and back fires
If it does Idle I can shake the mower and it starts it all over again.
HELP!!!!

Sounds like you may have some water in your gas. Stan

how old is it? have you spoken with you dealer? if i am not mistaken it has a 3 year warranty on the engine itself.

though from my experience, it sounds like bad gas has gummed up some things. i had a mower with the same issue....i took the float bowl apart and the carb apart and cleaned it several times. it now runs just fine.
