2004 T660 Dies while riding/non turbo
At the end of last season I picked up a 2004 660 touring for some family fun. Other than the sled obviously having been hauled on an open trailer and not as well taken care of as I would have liked. I went ahead and purchased it (decent deal).
I have a good back ground in snowmobiles and did some routine maintenance on it. Such as changing the fluids and checking bearings.
So, last night was the first time we took it out. Rides well for how big it is and its age. However it wants to kill when riding (fine at idol). It seems to me its like the kill switch is shutting the entire sled down. Lights flicker or go completely out, loses power and then a half second or a full second later the sled roars back to life and keeps going. May do it again 5 min later, may happen back to back.
I checked it over this morning and it seems like the kill switch is operating correctly, the key switch seems to be in good shape and functioning properly. I had installed a brand new battery in it. I checked those connections and everything good there. Don't see any chaffed, rubbed or broken wires. All connections look good and I do not see any corrosion.
Could the safety switch on the throttle cause it to completely lose power?
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks
