Honda 928TA motor in need of adjustment?

I have a 928TA that is brand new, when I advance the throttle past the 3/4 mark the motor starts to (what I would call) cough and just sound rough all together. I know there is a mod for high alt operators but I'm in Kansas so I don't think that's what I need. The one time I have used the blower this year I throttled back to that 3/4 mark so the engine would run smooth and then blew my snow, blower did ok just seamed to confirm I was not at full power as I think it could have thrown it further. Also I'm running standard 87 oct gas.

Does this sound like a spark plug gap issue or carb issue? If anyone else has had this issue please pass along the solution or point me in the direction of a thread addressing this.

Appreciate it guys!

if its new why not take it back to the dealer for service? some here may try to fix it but being new I'm not in that camp

It should be maintaning full power,sounds like an adjustment is needed? perhaps a cable or choke adjustment. Detdrbuzzard is correct take it to the dealer. do not try and fix it yourself.

I purchased it back in Oct and from an out of town Honda dealer so I hope my local Honda dealer will take a look at it & fix it for free.

All Honda dealers can make repairs to Honda equipment, and all dealers can submit a warranty claim to Honda as well. Does not matter if you bought a Honda from Dealer A, but then take it to Dealer B for repairs. If you registered your new machine with Honda, it will already be in the online warranty system that all Honda dealers can access. If you did NOT register, bring in proof-of-purchase and request the dealer to register it for you, and they can set the warranty start date to match the proof-of-purchase date.

A few other thoughts:

1. Customers who buy a machine from a dealer and then take it back to that dealer for service are usually put at the front of the line. Customers who bring in a machine they did not buy there are sometimes put at the back of the line. This really depends on the dealer, and how busy the shop may be at the time.

2. Honda's warranty for 2-stage machines is 36 months from date of purchase, and covers factory defects only. Your poor-running machine may be due to a dirty carburetor or other problem that is not a factory defect. If this is the case, you'd need to pay for the repairs.

3. Some dealers charge a diagnostic fee before doing any work. In the event the problem is a legit factory defect, they will credit the fee back to you. Not all shops do this, but ask in advance.

4. When taking the machine in for service, be sure the dealer's service manager knows to contact you and get your permission before doing any billable work.
