Sounds like it's a carburetor problem. Your choke could not be working properly or maybe your accelerator pump is clogged on your carb. First check the choke though. I've even known a lot of guys that wire their choke to stay open on their race cars but don't really know how well it works since I haven't done it myself. Hope this helps. Let me know what happens.

The timing chain and balancing chain on my 1995 900 SE convertible were just replaced. After picking up the car, the car started slipping out of gear both in reverse and drive. At times it it seems like...

You don't say if this is a manual or automatic trans-but when the work was done. a cable that adjusts the shifter to the trans itself was probably removed and may not have been reinstalled properly-so I would suggest that did the work check those connections and adjustments, and you should not drive it in that condition as it will no doubt damage your trans, very expensive.
