Targa Intermittent Power Loss

ItsLookingUp /

I'm working on a '94 Tomos Targa that intermittently losses power. It will be running great and then all of a sudden it losses power and can't exceed 15 mph. Let the ped sit for 1 hour and it usually has full power again. The last few times the carb was inspected it was clean with no sediment or debris in the bowl. It does have a very slow transmission fluid drip leak but the transmission is checked everyday to insure the level is okay. It never needs more than say 10 cc's to top it off. Just mentioning that since it is to only other issue with this ped.

is it over heating?

It does this after running for an hour or so. What is the sign of overheating?

well this kinda sounds like it is over heating,

run the bike for like 15 min and then do a plug chop.

Okay, I have a fresh plug. I will check that tomorrow evening. Ike also suggested there might not be enough oil.
