  1. General Sled Chat
    Hey guys, I just bought a 2008 ski doo summit. It seems to run quite rough. Sled has a new top end, compression shows around 130 on both cylinders. Seems to run really rough in drive, and then when our in reverse it misfires/backfires. Here’s the video link: any information would be GREATLY...
  2. Polaris Snowmobiles
    Starting a new thread after my low compression issue threads started getting long and off track. So diagnosing my inability to hold idle and poor power, I replaced my fuel pump, ran a new line to the pulse inlet, completely and meticulously cleaned my carbs, checked my clutching, and got it...
  3. Engine / Drivetrain
    So I got the XLT running again. Freshly rebuilt clutch installed, spare recoil housing installed after broken pull cord. Took a bunch of pulls to get it started, but once it did it idled just under 2k, let it warm up and gave it a test out in the field. Clutch seemed to work well. Engaged...

    Hey guys I have a 1994 XLT and when I went to start it up this year it was idling at about 4000 rpm, so I decided it probably needed a tune up with a new carb kit and flanges. When I was taking the carbs off I noticed a yellow substance on one of the cylinder walls. Is this normal? If not what...

    Hey I just bought a 2007 600 IQ CFI that is idling at about 950 RPM. I haven't worked on many of these so I do not know what I should be looking for or what could be causing this. Where should I start? Anything helps, thanks!

    Just bought a 95 vmax 600 (my first sled). The idle after giving it throttle is very high. Is this too much of a lean mixture problem? How could I solve this issue?
  7. Polaris Snowmobiles
    I’ve posted about this sled a few different times when i’ve run into different problems. My last problem was fuel delivery. I found out the fuel shutoff valve was clogged and when I took that out and ran a direct fuel line and blew into the tank to pressurize the lines and it started after a few...
  8. Vintage Snowmobiles
    Got 2 SS440’s that have been sitting for a few years cleaned the gas tank, carb and put in new fuel line. I got the thing started and once I turn the choke off it idles up to about 3000rpm then bogs our and dies. I’ve tried adjusting the idle screw but it does nothing. When the choke is on I can...
  9. Ski-Doo Snowmobiles
    I have two 1999 Skidoo Touring E's. I cleaned both carbs in preparation for this season. One idles and runs fine. The other idles for about 20 seconds and then stalls. I can prevent it from stalling by flipping the choke lever briefly. It will run for 20 more seconds and then try to stall...
