Sound medical advice. Although if compression were a problem, you might expect difficulties at idle, as well.

  Maybe you should give it a compression test. If it passes, then a tune up might be in order. Check timing and spark advance and maybe clean the carb

    Question about conditions under a load.
    I have a Sportsman 150 with a V6. At idle I have no problems in forward or reverse. When I open the throttle, in gear it never winds out. I can get 11 mph tops. When it is in neutral the motor winds up like a top, no problems.

    Where should I start? Could this be a timing advance problem? It only bogs down (but not completely off) when it is in gear.

    Many thanks ahead of time.
