    Predator that will just shut off.

    I have a stock predator (governor disconnected) on a kart my grand daughter autocrosses. We occasionally take the kart to LaFayette Motorsports Park , for practice . Never during an autocross, but every once in a while at LMP the motor will just shut off. By the time I get to the kart I can pull the starter and motor fires right back up and off she goes. Motor has stock gas tank in stock location, kart has 15 deg. mount. I was wondering if anybody else had this problem? Never seem to happen with more than a 1/2 tank of fuel. Is it possible with 15 degree mount the tank will not gravity feed enough fuel. Any ideas?

    It's not venting properly. Drill a small hole all the way through the gas cap. It should solve your problem.
