i was riding my rancher the other day and decided to see how fast it would go so i opened it up all the way, well only holding it for a few minutes wide open i noticed it started to cut out and lose power. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

Yeah, it sounds like you're hitting the rev limiter.

Rev limiters are to keep you from over revving your engine and damaging it. I think most ATVs have rev limiters and all fuel injected automobiles have them as well.
