I HAVE A 06 CROSSFIRE WITH 270 MILES ON IT. WHEN I TAKE OFF SLOW OR FAST THERE IS A REAL NOTICEABLE BOG. AT TRAIL SPEEDS IT'S CONSTANTLY THERE (UNDER 20MPH) i HAVE CHECKED THE CLUTCH FOR CENTER TO CENTER ,BELT DEFLECTION AND I CHECKD THE WEIGHTS TO SEE IF THEY WERE HUNG UP. AS FAR AS THE MOTOR GOES I CANT TELL. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS BOG AND WHAT WAS IT. NO MODS JUST STOCK.I ALSO CHECKED AND FOUND IT WAS SET UP FOR 0-3000FT, EFI.

Make sure the oil pump is running 50:1, just a thought. Or get the bigger air intake thing.

Check you springs on Primary/Secondary. Talk to your dealer about this; not sure what setups people are using on the XFire 6. Oh Canada is the man on this site who would know.

Could very well be the 100-1 break in oil fuel mix in the tank. The dealer fills her up with that. Untill it burns through you will have a dog of a sled. Just run her it will come around.

Only run 87 don't run high octane or the bog will come back.

I just had this problem for the first time on the weekend....

I noticed it just outside of Sudbury, When were trail riding at a bit slower speed. It seemed worse if I got on the brakes comin in the corner (almost like it wasn't back shifting). I would give back in the gas, it would bog, then I would give it another shot and it would slowly come back. Once we were riding abit faster (ie, faster corners) It didn't seem to happen.... I have 2195 miles on mine now, have been running 87 in it since day one... and it's a summer build 600. Any ideas?

Running the larger air intake has helped. I might even open up the airbox a bit more. Belt deflection seems to make a slight difference as well. I am working on clutching the 600 and will see if that makes a difference. Parts arrive next week. I agree with Ole too, check that oil ratio....yikes!

For the air intake....apparently some people have been using dryer vent materials from the hardware store. Not as pretty, but cheap, cheap cheap.

I did have the clutch apart to check and noticed the weights were real tight. I loosened them up so they were free it now reacts better, they were tight. I still have the bog but I do believe the Canadian with the flames about the oil. Will see

I believe torque spec on the weight pins is 10 foot pounds.

Mine bogged as you described the first 150 miles or so when running the 100:1 and some dilution thereof and my belt deflection was off (streched belt).

Bog problem are often belt issues - check your deflection. Some have had success with the p/n 044 belt. I noticed after about 200 miles my belt was sitting about 1/16 low and after adjustment all is well

Also check plugs - especially if running rich or after the break in mix
