my 4 wheeler all of a sudden has no take off or top end power. It is like it is stuck in second gear if you will. it starts slow then at 6-7mph it starts to catch up and goes well until it hits 25-30 and that is tops.

barely will climb a hill. idles well. Its automatic. Yamaha kodiak. 2006.

I have removed and cleaned the carburetor and it had zero build up or trash in it, or the jets. I changed plugs, I removed filter. oil level good. I am stumped...but thinking something to do with the transmission.

Trade it for a honda. \:D

Seriously I'm no mechanic and have no idea but hope its something easy and cheap. In the meantime you're welcome to borrow mine if you need it.

clutch is shot, how does the transmission oil smell. It has a centrifical clutch assembly. Could be hung up or clutch plates are no good.

Is it an automatic? If so you belt could be slipping or your clutch could need some work.

I had an artic cat that the belt got wet and did about the same thing. I will never own a belt driven four wheeler again. And diffenetly not an artic cat. But try the belt.

The only reason I didnt think any of that is the engine doesn't rev up like a clutch is slipping. And it just all of a sudden did it...my son and I rode it all over last Saturday and it ran great as always... Then I was riding it this friday and all was good. Going up a steep hill. Made it fine. But whe I got ready to pull in the barn it barely would go up the incline.
