on my 600 xlt sp xtra, a lot of people seem to be having the same symptoms, all thinking it;s carburation well, guess what? it wasn't, she started blowing off antifreeze today, figured a blown head gasket, so hitched a ride home and went back with my truck, dumped her in the garage and tore her down. found the mag side piston had eaten the top ring! a couple of weeks ago i had some water in the gas and she quit in a field. thawed it out and drained the tank and figured all was normal....'till now! she would start hard, had a bad bogg trying to get her going(sort of like the wife)...lol...and seemed to run fine at high speed, i spent all weekend tuning her up, cleaned the carbs, checked the chokes and put in all new jets, the plugs looked great today. i'm sure it's not something that happend today, it was in the high 20's and i was alone and taking it easy. so in closing, never, NEVER rule the symptom to one thing! now i just have to wait and get a new piston tomorrow :(
