WorldClassAccident is on a distinguished road
Default Car struggling to start and running rough when warm

I drove the Z300S for the first time in several weeks. Everything was fine until after parking outside the shop I went to start and drive away. It didn't start easy with plenty of churning before it sort of gasped into life. When I pulled away it was powerless and felt like it was running on 3 cylinders.

Gentle throttle produced better results than heavy throttle. If I stepped too hard on the throttle it stutters and the revs dropped. With gentle throttle I could coax it up to 30-40mph.

After a few minutes it seemed to clear its throat and was back to normal with no bad signs at all.

I am sticking a new air filter on it because it needs one but anything else you guys can think of to look at?
