Unhappy replace Z1 Spark plugs

Have a new Z1 Artic Cat Turbo Charged and the engine is really running rough..The dealer I called which is not right around the corner, said that the plugs are probably fouled..he say's it not a simple thing to do as on your typical snowmobile...Would anybody know the procedure in changing the plugs so I don't have to take my sled all the way back to the dealer? Thanks Dave

I haven't even seen a Z1 much less the trubo yet! They do say not to just fire it up and only run it for a minute, that this will fowl the plugs!

Owners manual says that if the plugs are possibley fowled to bring back to the dealer..Come on...It can't be that bad to get to the plugs!!Could it..And yes I did start it up a couple of times and shut it off , which started this problem..Anyone else no where I could look to find out where I could possibly start to get to the plugs?

Start it up and run it until it's properly warmed up then.

Look up your sled here and you will see what needs to come off to get to the plugs.
