What's to learn? Put on truck, drive to friend, ask for service.

Sounds like he already knows the routine.

I agree. For whatever reason, I'm scared of taking those darn carbs out and apart to clean!

For what it's worth, carbs are actually fairly easy. There's a process to them, lots of steps along the way, but nothing is hard. It takes a few tries of doing them before you feel comfortable making the fine adjustments... But you can absolutely do it.

Ask your buddy to oversee you pulling them apart next season... Great way to get comfortable.

My first sled I was always afraid to take things apart, or remove, for I feared what was behind that I could not see, and wouldn't be able to put back together. However after jumping in and trying it once, it's a rewarding feeling when you resolve an issue with your sled on your own. Not to mention a time and money saver in most cases. If you do attempt a service or repair and need help, trust me this is the best place for help.

I'm pretty mechanical actually but something about carbs just makes me nervous.
