when i try and punch it off the line it bogs and hesitates b4 it starts to go. when it does go the thing screams, lifts the skis right off the ground when u hit the sweet spot. as temp goes up, it gets worse. im gonna go a few sizes smaller on the main jet and the needle is at the top notch. anyone have any ideas? its a 94 zr580

When it starts to bog, flip up your choke real fast and see if that takes care of it. It could be a lean bog. I had it on my '96 xcr and it was a lean bog. I cured it with some carb adjustments. Give that choke trick a try first. Another possibility is the clutch. It gets worse when the temp goes up? What temperature? Ambient air temperature or the engine temperature? If the engine temperature, it could be the stator.

its air temperature that effects it. i have a comet clutch kit on it and last year it engaged around 5400, 5500. now its engaging at like 4800. is it possible that my spring is worn? i was thinkin that since last year it engaged later it revved higher and it took off fine. now the engagement is lower, so it cant rev up as high before it tries to move. it seems like carb but ive done every possible adjustment so it might be clutch.its just hard for me to understand that the clutch will cause the engine to bog at take off.

could a worn belt be the culprit? does your belt being worn cuz the sled to start off in a higher gear?

Sled: 03 MOUNTAIN CAT 900----95 ZR 700
I have a 95 ZR 700 with the exact same problem i have stock carbs aftermarket PSI twin pipes and it has been ported. I have to jet it 10 sizes smaller than what it is supposed to be just to get away from the bog but i'm afraid im going to melt it down. I have rubuilt the motor twice, not the problem, checked the slides, needles, brass, chokes, not the problem all where they should be. Changed the CDI, and coil,not the problem, checked all the wiringnot the problem however I may have diagnosed what it is. TRY THIS. Take a timing gun and hook it up to a good battery that you have lying around and hook the spark lead up to the mag side sparkplug wire. now start the machine and watch the timing marks. Rev the machine from idle up to about 6000 rpm( this must be done with no belt on) if the timing marks go clockwise as you add rpm (when standing on mag side of sled) this means that the timing is retarding itself. THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!!! It should be advancing itself with more RPM. Right now my machine is in my loacl Arctic C at dealer and they are trying to find out what the hell would cause this everything checks out EXCEPT the timing. The mechanic has contacted Arctic Cat Inc. and is awaighting there reply to see if they can diagnose the problem. I know the last 3 owners of this sled and they all say that it has always done this, but everyone all sank money into it and couldn't get rid of the bog. the machine starts good idles good and at wide open throttle hold on, but it has ALWAYS had this problem. As soon as I here back I'll reply with any info but until then you might want to TRY THIS!!!!!!
