Very strange bog

Ive got a 2000 zl580 efi thats got a weird bog. When im playing around in a field if i lean the sled over to the right it bogs way down and wants to die. As soon as i straighten it back up its fine. Lean to the left and its fine. Got a full tank of gas in it and i even checked it on hard pack trail cause i thought maybe the exhaust was getting plugged but it still does it on hard packed snow. Im stumped so any suggestions would be great

Are you sure it's not the throttle safety? Originally I was getting backfires and bogs on both of my 2000 z440s until I realized it was how I was positioning my thumb on the throttle. I would let my thumb slip and it would push the throttle perfectly so the safety would kill the engine temporarily until i let up on the throttle and it would re-engage. Just a quick thought.

It could be a pick up hose inside the tank that has holes in it from methanol fuel. Some rot completely off. Check for holes.
I think that model year it just gets unplugged and not bypassed. Does the same thing in the end.

Yes its just unplugged but why would holes in the pickup line only affect it when tipped on the right side? I had the tank full of fuel

If there is an air bubble in the tank or if the line loops up it may suck air thru a hole in the line. May or may not be it, just saying is all.

I have a zr 500 I had to unplug the tss on. I put electrical tape on the prongs so it won't flop around and touch things it shouldn't. Maybe try that?
