Mxz 700 Idle

I recently pirchased my first sled. 2000 MXZ 700. it runs well and is in good shape, im just reaching out to educate myself more about sleds. What should my sled idle at? if its too high, can i adjust the idle without having to re-sync the carbs?

welcome to the site.
your idle should be 1800-2000rpm's.
and you can adjust your idle, no prob.

so i can equally turn each of the two idle screws to reduce my idle? sounds easy enough.

If your idles hi I'd recommend cleaning the carbs real good.

yes i believe they are in sync now, (if they are not in sync whats the easiest way to tell) its runs strong with no hesitation. it just idles a lil high when i let off or when i come to a stop.

I use brake cleaner on my carbs unless carb cleaner is cheaper. Easiest easy to check sync is put your finger in the slide and gently squeeze throttle make sure they open together
