    my bike bogs out when I ask it to do a little heavy lifting (going up a steep rocky hill). This has happened a couple of times over the past couple of years. Only seems to happen when i really need some power to climb. It will bog out and die. It always sluggishly starts back up after a minute or two rest. And i noticed fuel coming out of the overflow tube at bottom of bike this last time. Anyone have a solution for this problem?

    Is it revving high enough? Or is it possibly in too high a gear during the climb?

    it is reving high enough. And it happened when i was climbing in first gear. These are not terribly steep climbs and i've had other 250cc's that would climb these with no problem. I suspect it has something to do with fuel injection or maybe even the fuel pump? If it's overflowing fuel out the overflow line would that indicate that the fuel pump is pumping too much fuel?
