1997 ski-doo forumla 3 carb specs needed

hey guys my dad just bought a 1997 ski-doo formula 3 600 with a stinger exhaust on it but it was way too loud..so we put the stocker on it but its getting a flat spot in it. which is from half to 3/4 throttle which tells me the needle height or needle might be wrong, what im looking for is what should it be running stock for needle's main jets pilot jets and the how many turns out on the air fuel screws. it was running on the rich side before we changed the exhaust because if it idled for a few mins or low revs it would foul plugs.i tried finding the manual but seems its only the welcome part of it all i really need is the specs.


oh and i myself run a 90 cougar

its the right needle. the 4 on the end of the # is the stock location. the air fuel screws should be 1 1/2 out. what plugs you runing? try the stock plugs.

So which plugs are better suited to the stock set up for the '96 FIII. The BR10ES or the BR9ES. I have the BR9ES in right now. Fouled one the other day pulling the kids around on a sled at low speed. I know better but the kids were right into it so....
