i would say not lean then, lean would show whit/grayish color. try cleaning the carbs and make sure to get the pilot jets clean.

ok, top end seems fine it seems to me its the low end, it has diff pilot jets in it than stock, im thinking that may be the problem? the carbs were off my old edge.

well i would start with a good carb cleaning and then play with the jets if its still acting up. just make sure to watch the plugs and make sure you dont lean it out. and take small steps like one size at a time when you start playing with it. dont want to throw it way off the charts and out of reach ya know.

Thats where I would start...
Pilot...idle, just off idel
Needle...Midrange
Main...3/4 to wot
Clean carbs, does that have a fuel or air screw? check pos.(richen up) or bigger pilots..chack plugs after idle hang...wide open will only check the main.

fuel screw, when i turn the idle down to like 50 rpms it wont hang anymore. i have it set there untill i can figure out whats wrong with it.

there's nothing wrong. your air screws could use a 1/4 turn. at idle your sled runs on air screws and pilots. air screws are easy to adjust. don't waist your time with jets, just adjust your air screw a bit. If it only hangs for 4 sec then pretty normal for a lot of sleds. On a crisp -30 C day any stock sled will have a bit of idle hang. No biggie.
