Nobody else with 97 xlt ltd needle/seat issues? REALLY??

Have a 1997 xlt ltd that has stock 34mm carbs but uses a 1.5 needle/seat assembly with 9mm threads apposed to 10mm like Denniskirk and other catologs suggest for fitment. Polarisman's page says the 97 came with vm38 carbs but that's wrong. The xlt sp did, but the limited editon came with 34mm carbs. I just want to know if anyone else has had these same issues with this year sled (model #0973756)??

The "problem" is that all catalogs and websites are selling the wrong needle/seat for that year make model of sled unless you order it oem and why would you pay 3 times the price if you don't need to?

the 93-95 model years used the 34 mm carbs, so order one from one of those years.

you get what you pay for there is a reason there so much cheaper and the xlt carbs have issues with wearing seats out fairly quickly cheapies just wear quicker.

As stated above, any 34mm carb needles will work.

I got the needle seats i needed the day i posted my original message. I knew i needed 9mm threads, NOT 10mm because i had already taken them out. The problem is that if you go to any parts website and punch in 1997 xlt ltd, you WILL be sent the wrong part. IT will have 10mm threads not 9. Some sites will still send you the wrong part even if you use the oem part# to do a search. Don't believe me -try it. I'm just trying to save the next guy/gal a headache. Thanks
