brute has problems

ok guys i have been having problems with my brute just losing power , sounds like if u just hit the kill switch while riding . it dies down and starts to backfire for a few seconds and when u feather the throtle it just comes right back to life. it does it at any time , dry wet it does not matter. i pulled all jets out and put all stock ones back in and also put stock CDI back in and it still does the same. it seam to only do it at low speeds and never does it if hard on the gas ,but when it comes back to idle it will sometimes do it. any ideas ?

how long has it been doin this . you think could be some bad gas or even water in the gas . maybe spark plug or wires ?

its been doing it for the last 4 rides . 3 tanks of gas so its not that, plugs are bark brown so they were go the last time i checked them and plug wires are new just put some new ones on a couple months ago.

It is possibe that there is some water in bowls. try draining them. a friend had similar prob.

Sounds like it may be electrical...you think? buss conector could be it. let me think on it.

just did the buss connector. it had some mud in it but didn't really look that bad , cut it out anyway. fixxin to storm here so cant ride it yet . i really dont think that is the problem
