I have an 03 Edge 700. I have recently put on a mbrp race can and v-force 3 reeds. When the sled gets into the high rmp's (6500+) the sled just bogs and stays there, also it doesnt idle hardly at all. It will drop to about 200-400 and then just die out. I cant remember what it use to rev to but I believe it was about 7500 or 7700. What could the problem be? Dirty carbs, Bad gas, Need to rejet? Thanks

^ after you run it WOT for 1/2-1 mile or wrapped up pretty good for 30-45 seconds on a stand.

If you let it idle and then pull them, they will be wet and black every time.

I cannot see any jetting cause it not to pull top rpm. Perhaps once you do what others recomend check your VES and make sure they are clean and the hole in the cylinder is not plugged either.

Well I checked the plugs after taking it for a short ride around the yard, and they were the golden brown that you were talking about. So I will check the VES and see if that is the problem. Also I bought all the things off a guy with and RMK 600 and he never had jetted at all, so that leads me to think its something else.

Are you sure the 600 can is the right one for your 700. That can really f'things up if it dosnt flow enough for your bigger engine.
However, aside from the can, It really sould like a jetting or fuel delivery issue. Or possibly the ves.

Good Luck

Make sure you airscrews are the same...I would think 1.5 turns out from lightly seated would be where you want them.
