The Yamaha lives The shop found a carb blockage that was someplace I hadn't got to. This does raise a question: The engine itself has a "mini-Racor" fuel filter that is about the size of 2 35mm film canisters. Granted it isn't going to hold much if any water, but whatever clogged the carb made it through that filter screen or was created in the carb itself
This seems to happen to A4s now and again as well. The mechanic suggested adding an actual Racor type filter - done! - and ALWAYS running the gas out. My son has been advised
