I have a 2009 X300 Rider and after cutting the grass for 20-30 minutes it starts surging real bad and finally will quit. Sometimes if I push up and hold the choke lever it will continue to run but only for a short while. The x300 with a Kawasaki motor only has 90+ hours on it. When this happened earlier this year I changed the fuel filter thinking that was the culprit but now it's doing it again. The fuel filter never seems to be more than 1/4 full of gas is this normal for a JD? I pulled the fuel line off from the pump to the carb and fuel comes out but not in to great a stream. Does this indicate a bad pump or is a small stream of gas normal? From the parts diagram the fuel pump appears to be a JDUC16533 pump. Any ideas?
