  1. Turbo 4 Stroke Performance
    Okay guys first post here, this spring is picked up a 2015 zr9000 and just recently have been prepping it for the season. TD 3 stage tune with anti lag, new plugs cr9eb gapped .020, new fuel filter, oil change, gear oil change, and IAC cleaned. However the sled will idle fine up to temp but once...
  2. Arctic Cat Snowmobiles
    Hey guys, I’ve got a 2008 tz1, it had a misfire until about half throttle so I decided to do the plugs and valve clearance check. All is good with that, the sled runs great except at idle. My dad says it sounds like it’s running on one cylinder a bit. I don’t think it is, I think it’s just the...
  3. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    Hey guys, I have a 2003 ZL 550 that has been in the family since it was new. It is a great running sled and starts on 1 or 2 pulls on all but the coldest days, but will not idle until warm. Unless you stay by the sled and keep blipping the throttle the idle will drop lower and lower and until it...
  4. Bearcat/Norseman/Utility
    I have a 2007 Bearcat 660 Turbo, and recently when i let it idle or after starting it up the engine revs up and then goes back down constantly. Its very fast, it will rev up and down and then back up within a second or 2. We replaced the throttle positioning sensor without any luck. Any ideas...
  5. Vintage 1992 & Older
    I purchased this 440 f/c 1987 Jag from my cousin in hopes of getting a couple rides in this winter and will hopefully keep the machine for as long as it will run. It starts fine but will not idle for more than 10-15 seconds. I have cleaned the carburetor twice, replaced the needle valve...
  6. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    My 02 ZL 800 efi with electric start will not start unless you slightly hold the throttle open it will then not idle. If you go to ride it will pop and spit like it is hitting a rev limiter for a minute or two. Once it comes out of it, it runs fine and idles fine until you shut it off then same...

    I feel like my '79 El Tigre 6000 is idling a little low. Does anybody know what RPM it should be idling at? Also, are there any good methods for adjusting both carburetors while keeping them in sync with each other? Thanks!

    When I first start up the engine idles at the proper speed, after a short warmup it goes to a fast idle and stays there, adjusting the idle screw seems to have no effect. Where do I start on this problem?
  10. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    I have a 94 EXT 580 efi and a 96 ZR 580 efi. I love the 580s they've always run great for me. I'm just a bit new to efi though, but I like it. These are both fresh rebuilds, good compression, good everything. When I start the engine from cold it starts in 2-3 pulls, but it idles at about 600...

    so my 2009 arctic cat 700 mud pro has a rough idle?? not sure why... i have had a few problems recently with the bike stalling out/or "bogging down" when the bike hits water. Twice now, when the bike was totally submersed (up the the racks) the bike has stalled out and sucked water back into the...

    When it come to carburetors I will admit, I Am Not The Sharpest Knife In The Drawer! I picked up a AC 650 V2, it never has run right since I got it. Originally it wanted to idle usually on only one cylinder if it would idle at all, the idle adjustment was in all the way and still the idle was...

    i have a 1990 cougar that will start and idle but will then dies when i give it any gas. it wont start again after that for a little bit but then will start and idle again. i just change the carb boots and drained the old gas out from last year and put "new" gas in it. i live in ny and every gas...

  15. Z/ZL/ZR/ZRT/T-Cat/EXT/JAG/Cougar
    Hey guys, let me start of by saying i replaced my tps recently. did a miracle and the sled started agian. Clap anyways before this happening and now, the sled wants to idle high. when i first start it, rpm's are 1800. Then if i hardly give it gas it shoots up to 3500 and stays. I sprayed boots...
