    This thing runs great when its cool. Starts no worries and get going like it should. Its just when its been sitting in the sun for a few hours that its almost impossible to start. Then, when it does idle, as soon as to try and get revs up it just bog's and dies. Its basically brand new .

    Can anyone help :

    sounds like a possible air leak somewhere or carb issues running lean when it get hot. could also be a tank vent issue when hot.

    If it is one of the new 4-mix engines then take it to your dealer. I had a similar problem, repair tech told me it was a combo of valves and carb. Now it runs fine.
