ZRT Help

OK i need a little help, I am pretty much brand new to the sport. I purchased a 96 ZRT 600 last winter i picked it up for 500 bucks it had a carb issue where you had to feather the throttle to get it to really go. So this winter I cleaned out the carbs and it was running pretty well, only issue was some low end lag which i think is somewhat common with triples? OK now to the point I took it out a couple nights ago just to rip around the yard as we have not had much for snow, it was odd because it started really hard and prior to this episode it started one pull very consistent. I took it around the yard a couple times and it ran decent, I let my GF take it around and she went very slow, I shut it off and then started it back up after a little while, and the sled would barely move and would not go over 5000 rpms. So where should i start the troubleshooting as I would like to get this thing going since trails will be opening shortly. Sorry for the long story and thanks for any help.

Could be spark/stator related. Your ohms are 450 and 20. could be TSS related...just bypass it in the handlebars. You can head to my youtube page to watch vids on how to check and bypass all that stuff for testing.

Re: ZRT Help

First things first, put new spark plugs in it, then verify if you are getting spark on all cylinders.

You shouldn't have any low end lag at all... Triple or not. Check your plugs to make sure you don't have a lean spot from improper carb setting / cleaning.
