    I have the 1 year old Tanaka mounted on my GEBE setup. As I was riding yesterday after about 15 minutes, I felt it lose power for a minute, then after another minute, just wound down and off. I wanted a few minutes and cranked it back up. After a few minutes, it died again. When I peddled home, I took it apart and could see no issues on the fuel line or intake. I did just use new 87 Octane gas with no ethanol. Any suggestions?

    Did you check the fuel filter? Clean air filter?

    I had this problem once and it was a leaky fuel line. FWIW, i use 92 octane
