Sounds like fuel starvation, make sure all filters are clear of debris and petrol residues, meshes clog easily, the pump can only pump what it can scavenge! If it has carburetor, check jets and floats also diaphragm are in good order and set properly. Good Luck ! The Yeti - Hastings

Hi, if you have a fuel leak you could be drawing air into your fuel system and that could give you poor throttle response. Best fix the leak and see how it runs.

My 2012 exc500 cuts out with throttle wide open and FI light flickers on.

The F1 light is an engine management error, take it to your nearest dealer and get them to run their diagnosis machine on it. You may have a mixture problem or an ignition timing problem.
