I start with fuel flow first. Be sure it is going to the carb in copious amounts. THEN- take the float bowl off and be sure it's flowing into the float bowl without restriction.
By "bog" I assume you mean once it's warmed up and is running under steady throttle, it runs well, loses power, picks back up, repeat?

Have you checked your gas cap to be sure it's venting properly? That will cause them to starve out as well.

I don't think he's talking about four stroking, unless YOU are speaking of the 2cycle/4cycle break, as when a two stroke is tuned perfectly, which then only only happens at light load/cruise condition, and not every 5 seconds.
