While coming back from wcss8, the Brat started acting up. It acts like it's not getting fuel, the filters are the first thing I'm checking in the morning. I tried spraying carb cleaner around but couldn't find anything major as far as a vacuum leak. I cleaned the air filter as it was nasty after the mudpit. When going up a hill, in third, it starts to sputter and miss. It also did it in fourth gear around a corner and uphill tonight. It acts like it WANTS to drive but like there's something not letting it get past a certain point. Just wondering if anyone else had any ideas.

Weber right?

I routinely have to clean mine when off-roading. It will start acting weird cause the air bleeds are prone to getting junk in them. Just rev it up, and cover the intake with a rag. If that doesn't work, try spraying carb cleaner directly into each air bleed to clean them out.
