I would go through all the cluching. Items may need to be replaced. Check all bearings, clean the carbs as needle and seat maybe worn and leaking.

same problem with my 95 xcr, especially when my son, whos 17 is riding it. Not so much when I, 39, am??? Wonder why???? You play hard, you pay hard. Dont think its to bad though, My 95 RXL, was lucky to get 3 mpg. A reaql pig is the 95 xcr,"polarisrocks" sled. 60 miles, 11 gallons, and he has a triumph motor, with flat slides, what a total gas gussler, but he does have the power out of it, but very very expensive gas wise

I had the same sled dropped the mains several sizes (dont rem the exact size) but it made a huge diff. I was also told to go down one pilot size but was to scared to blow her up cause I was a broke college student at that time.

I used to have one of those and i did like welder383 said for the jetting. My dealer looked up all the bulletins for it and that was one of them. They are a tough sled to tune in general, they came from the factory tuned about the worst ive ever seen a sled tuned, thats why they dint last long.
