1997 Xcr 600

Hey, My xcr 600 idles at about 4000rpms, take off about 4400-4500 rpms .... And i can only get it up to about 80 mph ..... Whats wrong with my sled?? This idling and take off number arent arent are they , i think its idling way to high .... But if its idling to high then should it go slower?? Maybe im wrong but id think it would go faster than that, my 89 indy trail 488 would go to like 70. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks ....

That sled should go alot faster than 80MPH. It has 115hp (stock). Your idle should be around 1500-2000 rpm's. Your clutch engagement sounds about right though. What kind of preseason maintainace was done? Kinda sounds like the carbs are outta wack a bit. Does it bog? How old is the belt? When idling at 4000 flip your choke on until yur rpm's come down then shut yur choke off. See if the rpm's stay down after that. My old XLT did that.

I just bought the sled for 700 bucks from my boss. It needed new outside crank bearings so we got those in, everything else was fine. i blew out all of the lines( oil gas vent) new cometic gaskets, ill try changing the belt. The speedo reads 120 i belive, but i have a hard time getting it up to 80 .... it sorta bogs on take off but once i get up to around 20 and punch it you gotta hold on ....
Btw ... Would the belt make that much of a difference in speed ?? I'm getting ready to go to work ( thats my transportation .... only got my permit ) so ill change the belt and try her out .... Thanks alot guys ...

Listen to this ..... I went out, started up and drove it around for a while, came back and opened the cowl .... started looking around and i noticed one of the bolts to drain the engine is gone .... Like you know, there three of them, very small bolts in the lower front of the engine .... the far right one is missing. Im gunna pick one up today when i go to work. We are getting pounded with freezing rain right now .... no snow just freezing rain. Suppose to be the big " frontal system " coming in though ....

Holy crap. That could solve your problem. Just make sure it's the same type, and length. Good luck
