    I'm experiencing loss of power in low gears when i ask my 2015 crf250L to do steep prolonged inclines. This is happening on rocky steep trails that climb for 100 yrds or so. The bike will lose power, bog out, and sometimes die. It always has cranked back up but no fun stalling in that situation. Any suggestions?

    May need to come all the way down to 1st. Are you bogging out in 1st, or the higher gears?

    I'm in 1st when it happens- at the high end of first gear. Always when I'm going up something really steep and pouring the coal to it. (when i need the power the most)
