my brand new f 5 with 130 miles on it bogs out really bad when i am stopped when i want to get the sled moving from a dead stop it takes like 3/4 throttle before i can even get the track to move then after it get it going i let off the throttle and nail it again and it goes like a bastard, any ideas? or is this just another thing i am going to hav to get used to like the unreal oil consumption??

Sounds to me like it could either be cutching, particullary secondary preload or Powervalves. Does it do it with out a load? What are your RPMs at 3/4 throttle? Is your primary engaging? If so at what RPMs. It could also be a failed spring in your primary.

F5's had a lot of problerms with the power valve cables falling off, but if it goes like hell when you punch it that wouldnt make sense. Also the oil problem was a recall by cat, not sure if youve had that done or not.
