Unhappy Bike idles give throttle and bogs and stalls

I was riding my 00 soft tail standard and at 45 mph just stopped running, pulled over restarted and rode and then did it again and again until it would only idle. When I give it gas it just bogs out. It does have fuel in the tank. Any ideas?

A clogged main jet will only prevent top end power.

You said It started at one rate and now only idles.....? Your bike is fuel starved.

Check the petcock vacuum source. Either you developed a leak in the petcock diaphram or the vacuum line has a leak in it.
