Hello Fellow Fanatics, I have a 03 Ski doo Rev 800, went out for another ride this past Thursday absolutly spectacular, machine performed out climbing 05 Polaris 900. I used to be a Polaris man no disrespect intended! My issue I am having is that when we are descending at day end from about 5800Ft on down my RPM seems to stay up anywhere from 3000 to 3500 and if I stop it takes a long time to recover to a nominal idle. Also a exclamation mark idiot light flickers on and off when this situation occurs I assume this is the overheating light but as I bought this machine used I not familiar with all the idiot lights. I had my scratchers out and snow conditions were good as far as getting snow for the cooling. Anyone had any similar issues. Safe Riding! Cheers!

you are jetted for the higher altitude and too lean in either the needle section or the pilots. You did not give a throttle position so hard to know

Hopefully it will help on a few questions about your sled, other questions feel free to ask here at SF, Theres a lot of very knowledgeable people here.

Hello Fanatics, speedracer pointed out that I didn't give a throttle position when I get the high reving as I am decending in altitude. I can have the throttle released to what should be the idle position as I am coming down some sections and the engine speed stays up causing sometimes what feels like the belt still engaged so it is still pulling you.[:0]I will then give it a quick burst of throttle and let it back to idle and this will sometimes help but the speed and recovery back to an idle seem to take a long time. When we do arrive at the trucks and I come to a full stop the engine RPM is very high not high enough to engage the clutch but way above normal and the recovery time back to a proper idle situation to me seemsto take a bit of time. As far as the idiot light flickering on I will let you know which one it is when I get more paper for the printer.[:(]Thanks to all Replies!Ride Safe!Cheers!

the lower you get the more air you get the leaner the sled, and usually cooler at the end of the day. Check with a local doo dealer and see if they have changed pilot jets from stock and see what you have, or you may need to just set your air screw
