Well, along with having no registration and no contact with the last registrant, I also have other issues. It is not major, however...When the handle bar is turned hard to the left, the sled will quit... its obviously something electrical, but we have inspected all the wires behind the airbox and by the handles and do not see anything out of he ordinary. Any ideas?

BUMP, i need some help here with this one. Its not a wire anywheres near the handle bar...could there be something beneath the motor? There is quite a bit of "slop" in the steering column in the bushing right at the back of the motor...it seems that whenever we let that move around by turning the handle, the sled dies. Could it be grounding something out?

ADDITION THE THE ABOVE POST - It now does it when you even just let pressure off the handle bars, not just when you turn left

We had found that somewhere under the motor was the problem. So we pulled it tonight. Easy, smooth sailing task...however, NOT A SINGLE BROKEN WIRE IN SIGHT!
