I have a 6.5 hp predator engine, the other day I was pulling someone and it worked fine for a while. But then when I started it to pull the person it revved fine but wouldn't go at riding speed, no matter how much I used the throttle it just pulled line in really slow and wouldn't go faster. Any ideas?

Are you using a TAV or a centrifugal clutch?

Make sure the air filter and carburetor are clean, visually inspect your fuel lines, and try a new plug.

It can't be the gear ratio unless you physically changed something.

I am using a tav, I didn't think to check the carb and air filter, I'll try that.

Try walking the rope out and use the engine to pull it back in without a rider on it. Does it spool back up at normal speed?

Last summer my TAV was doing that. Next time check to see if the drive pulley is fully engaging. If it's not you may need a new set of weights, they're like $40 I think.

it does the same thing, I'm gone for the weekend and won't be able to mess with it but when I come back I'll try to get into more detail.

I guess I figured it out haha, this bolt on the side of the tav was loose and I hadn't noticed it, tightened it up and it seemed back to normal. I'll try pulling someone this week and hopefully it's good.

Put some red loctite on that bolt to keep that from happening again.
