I am not sure if I have posted here or not. I bought my first snowmobile last fall. I looked around for quite awhile trying to find one with low miles and was not a project for a low price, mostly because I did not know if I would like riding and figured I could get my money back if I decided to get out. After a trip this past weekend I think I will hang on to it for a while!
Anyway, my question is about the carbs. It looks like someone unplugged them and made a jumper of sorts for the sled side of the wiring and left the plugs from the carbs just dangle. It runs great once it warms up, but the idle seems to vary from 900 to 1300. I know it should idle higher than that, but am afraid to adjust it, since it sometimes the idle seems to wander. Also, it is a little bit of a pain when starting it from cold, I have to nurse the throttle until it warms up a little bit. I just wondered if the magnetic switch on the carbs had anything to do with this?
I planned to take the carbs off and clean them and get the idle back up to specified range, but before I do I wanted to see if there is something else I should look at.
