I took my sled all apart to clean it over the summer and finally got it put together and I started it up and it refuses to idle. It winds up just past engagement and I can't figure out why.

First i thought maybe i didn't have the cable adjusted right so i kept turning it looser and looser and now its all the way loose and it was still high. Then I went into my carbs and found I had changed the jets back to flatland specs but not the needles. So i changed them and it still ran high. Now if I remove the throttle cable out of the bracket it will run right but it pulls the slides up a good 1/4 inch if attached.

Any ideas on what the problem could be?

After you turned it looser and looser, was there still tension on the cable where it attaches to the carbs? Did your routing change somehow?

Isn't there some screw that you tighten or lossen to adjust idle speed? I recall my friend's sled having that problem. At idle it woul idle up by 3800-4000 with stock clutches. They adjusted this screw and everything was ok. I don't know much else about itother than that it apparently exists.

Ya thats the first thing I did but it didn't improve it at all. Im starting to think I have bad crank seals or the gaskets on the case are bad. Im gonna go out there later with a can of carb gleaner and shoot it around and if that is the case I probably wont be riding this year but if it isn't that I am at a loss.
