Could use a better description of whats going on.

Is it bogging out, spitting and sputtering, or is the engine running good but it's just not moving?

Is it carb or efi?

If the engine sounds like it is running like crap, it could be fuel, carbs (if it has them), plug wires, or spark plugs...as far as simple things.

If the engine sounds fine, is your belt burning? Could be sticky clutches or a bad belt.

More info will help alot, kinda guessing right now.

Check your DESS key connection. If the sled isn't running properly it will be beeping at you, your problem is depending on the pattern of beeps, look them up in the owner's manual.

sounds like the dess is working fine to me. try and move it around to get a better connection ... like i sled if the dess is working like it should it will only let the sled rev up so much. and not let the clutch engage.. some times not run at all.
go to your local dealer and have them reprogram you a new dess they are like 25 bucks. but to do that you need to take the sled to them to .oh and if you don't know what a dess is it the thing that looks like a tether and usually has d.e.s.s by it lol just kidding and trying to lighten the mood .look and the sunny side at least it runs.

also check and see if you have water in your carbs if you do your going to need to clean them also check your plug boots they can be wet to after checking each thing see if it runs and then you now what was wrong

If you changed the title of this thread to "MXZ will not run right".. you would get more hits then 190.

HELP!!!!!!!! doesn't say much and most people just skim over it ;)
