Stalling No Power Problem

I have a 05 Ranger XP On the last few long rides after about 40 miles or so I will lose power and it acts like it is starved for fuel or out of fuel. If I turn it off for just a few minutes it will start right up and runs fine.
I have changed the fuel filter and I always clean and check the air filters
Anyone had the same problem or any Ideas on what is going on

Check your gas tank vent line. Crack open the gas cap when it starts doing it and see if it runs better.

I agree with Curt. I've heard of folks having clogged vent tubes.

I agree with them on this, I have seen this happen numerous times on atv's and a clogged vent hose or clogged gas cap was the problem.

Rangers are notorious for clogging the fuel tank vent line. The right rear wheel throws mud right up on it. A friends tank imploded because of a clogged line. We had to blow air into the tank to get it to come back to shape.
