My 2005 F6 EFI likes to load up when it idles for for about a minute or so. If I get on the throttle for a few seconds it clears right out. It seems to idle fine at around 1800rpms. It really isn't a problem, just doesn't help when you are lined up with your buddies to drag race. I started noticing it lately and the weather has been warm(20s - 30s). I'm not sure if that is a factor. Any ideas why or how to solve?

I think most EFI's are that way. My 04 F6 EFI does it too. New reed petals seemed to help a bit, cuz they lean out the bottom end and richen the top.

Try turning your TPS an 1/8" counter clockwise & see if that helps.

Yea they all do it. Try NGK br9eix plugs, oh wow, they are like having a fresh set of eya's in all the time. With eya's, with fresh plugs its a noticable improvement for about 15min. then the low end gets the dull sound and sounds like its wants to load up. With the EIX's the engine just feels more crisp with a more poppy exhaust note for a considerable longer amount of time. I never thought a spark plug could make such a noticable difference, but with how rich the 6 runs thru the low-mid the iridiaums(sp) are a welcomed improvement.

Well it sounds like I have some options to take care this load-up issues. The TPS is mounted on the side of the throttle bodies isn't it? Does it take a philips screw driver to turn that screw? I haven't actually measured how much oil my sled is using. Kinda seems like a lot though. I might want to measure that before I adjust the oil injection. Putting in a different set of plugs seems like an easy solution if it works.

Are they the plugs for the skidoo sdi engines? Do they not burn hotter than the es or eya;s?
