My 94 VR has started to occasionally drop power when exiting a hard corner. It feels like the power loss you get when the engine is miss firing but I cant hear it miss fire. I just replaced the ignition leads recently (to fix it miss firing). It also seems to happen at times that you most need torque and feels like the engine just has nothing left to give. If you hold the accelerator down the power does come back a second after you exit the corner though. Any ideas?

I read on this site about the Fuel Tank Surge tanks not properly giving the engine the required fuel at times for example turning into the corners as the fuel goes to one side of the tank.... but I can't find the page and I might be wrong
