If that is the stock gauge, it probably isn't correct mine was showing 45 psi and when I put another one I had in the shop, it was more like 25 psi.

Go ahead and change your plugs (cheapest 1st) but I've never heard of plugs getting hot and not working. 

Fuel pumps and ignition coils usually. Keep us informed on how the plug change goes.

Yes.. i also turned the fuel pressure down to about 50-52 psi.. it wasn't running rich.. air/fuel gauge is running at about 14-14.5 warm..I took it riding the other day for about 6-8 hours and i had to wait for it to start a few times that morning but after that it hasn't don't it anymore.. I don't know for sure but I think it's was because i had it very very rich before and now I got it running pretty go now..

Glad you figured it out. At the end of the season last year Mine was dieing on me when coming off throttle from time to time. Then it didn't want to start afterward. I found oil in the intake and on the intake sensors. Also found a suspect air leak in a cracked intake rubber plug.  Cleaned the sensors and filled the plug with rtv and is running great. Keep an eye on rubber parts. They are always cracking.

      I have a part that fell over to the exhaust and burned the harness up. I can't figure out what it is. Does anyone know what the start relay looks like? The part I can't figure out has 4 wires, a red power, a green and brown wire, a black and unsure what the 4th color was. Anyone have a clue?

      Okay folks. I have a low power issue. Been like this for a few years. Place I work at bought 3 and all have lost most of the pulling power.  They gave them away after local shop worked on one for 3 months and it had great power for about 1 month and then crap. They replaced throttle body, fuel injector, spark plug and IAC motor. Seat belt switches have wires cut and left open so no seat belt warning light anymore. It revs to 6k rpm in neutral but when put in gear and take off in low it just doesn’t seem to want to go anymore. Running 93 octane fuel with Stabil.  Any ideas greatly appreciated. I dont have a scan tool but no codes on dash. If held to floor it pops a little and runs almost 5K rpm but if I let off pedal about an inch it smoothed out and revs up to 6k rpm.

      We just bought a used 2017 American Landmaster TW450. No hour meter that I can find, so not sure exactly how much it has been used. 
      The first 2 days we had it, the starter was a little sketchy, but it started after 2-3 tries. Sometimes when turning the key, we would hear a loud metal "clink" sound. Like the starter made contact, but didn't have enough power to turn. 
      THIS MORNING... Turning the key, we hear a single click sound. That's it. Even with a new battery, the starter is still doing the same thing. Both batteries (old and new) were reading 12.8 volts on volt meter. So I'm wondering what else could be going on? Any ideas on what to look for would be greatly appreciated...
      Thank you!
