Question about Moen 7835 Camerist Single-Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray Chrome...
Sometimes when you valve off a water supply, particles of rust or mineral deposits break free and travel along down the pipe when the water comes back on, only to stop when they reach a small opening. In this case, it could be the faucet's supply line.
You already cleaned the aerator, which would have been my first suggestion. The next step is to visually inspect the supply lines for the faucet. Are any of them kinked or twisted? If they look good, the next step is to valve off the water at the shutoff valves closest to the faucet-- they should be on the plumbing under the sink.
Next, disconnect the supply lines to the faucet at the point closest to the faucet. Using a bucket, aim each supply line, one at a time, into the bucket and slowly valve on the water. How is the water pressure? Do any rust particles come out? Flush each line until the water runs clean and strong. Before you reattach the supply lines, use a flashlight to check the hardpiping on the faucet itself and visually check for any obstructions. Remove any suspected blockages manually.
Reconnect the supply lines to your faucet and check its pressure again. If the faucet's pressure is still low, you may have a clog in the faucet's interior mechanism.
--Hope this helps

Same problem with our Kitchen Faucet. I tried the common/easy solutions (aerator, cleaning the supply lines, etc.) No go. Then I got a lead on another common problem that can cause this. If you have a vegetable sprayer, the diverter might be getting stuck and this will reduce the volume coming out of your faucet head. You can either replace the diverter or try to lubricate it with plumber's grease (not too much though!). I tried to replace the diverter, however the older one was "frozen" on. A little plumber's grease has at least increased the volume - perhaps the diverter is not getting stuck half way anymore. btw: To see about a video on how to reach those got awful water shutoff valves under your sink, go to this link: http://prismreachingwatersupplyvalves.blogspot.com/
