ive posted before on how my rpm was low almost on zero,well ever since i did it has been idiling at 1600 and i dint touch a thing
well anyhow today i went out to start it up and let it get warm,she started right up on the first pull and idled a minute then the rms dropped down to zero the motor is hardly running then she will die,so after letting her warm up by me holding her at a idle let off and she dies again..i ended up turning the idle screw up which gave me the idle i wanted,now trying to take off she is bogging way down to the point i cant move without gettin on her..i changed the plugs (old ones a brown color still looked good)and got going down my road and she was bogging untill i got into it a bit i dont know if its the belt,clutches,but it sounded like the motor was bogging...what could it be?thanks

Any chance that your timing got bumped? Have you checked to see if your primary jets are plugged?

Just a thought: I have a 02 600XC, when I leave it outside or trailer for awhile it has some of the troubles as you described. Not wanting to idle, and I usually have to hold the throttle for a while then hop on and go. I have never messed with the idle screw though, so maybe that's were your problem is. Maybe turn it back to were it was and try just babying the throttle during warm-up, like I said just a thought...good luck!

I'd say look at the jets also. Maybe got a little crud in it from the fuel tank. Any chance of having water in the fuel?

I'd try cleaning your carbs, they're pretty easy to tear apart and get back together. Take notes as to how many turns you've got on your adjustment screws so you can get them back to where they were again. Use a can of carb or parts cleaner to blow out the passageways & jets.
If you're unsure of your ability to get the carbs back together again like they were, just take one apart at a time & use the other one as a reference.

do you think some fuel injection would do any good?the sled is brand new so there shouldnt be that much grude in the tank if any at all..im ruling out the belt and clutches bacause it bogs the most befor it even engages,and sounds like a engine bog

Well, if the sled is brand new, take it back to the dealer & have them fix it for you... that's one of the benefits to buying new, it's going to be taken care of by professionals.
Injector cleaner wouldn't hurt, and it may clear the trouble up. Put some Iso-heet into it while you're at it.. maybe you've got some water in there it's trying to work through.

Sounds like you may have ice in your gas, and carps. After she sits for a while and she does what you described get an extention cord and a hair drier and put it down by the carbs and gas lines. Be careful not to melt any thing. Also put some fresh gas in it and a touch of dry gas.

at the moment i dont have a ride to get it up to the dealer so ill try the little things.i ride my sled everyday between 60-150 miles i usually fill up 2 times a day so the gas is always fresh and when it gets parked it usually has at least 3/4's of a tank left.oh yeah 4/20 is the day my daughter was born..but it stands for many things..
