I own a 2012 TZ1 LXR (non-turbo). My issue is that it will not start without touching the throttle. You have to keep the throttle just slightly pressed for the sled to stay started. Once warm-up is complete it usually stays started but is only idling between 800 - 900 rpms. I have only used supreme gas in this sled and the plug have been changed which have not solved the issue. Any suggestions??

I would first start with having the battery checked. My TZ1 starts hard if it's been sitting a while (the remote start draws down the battery). It seems to turn over OK but just doesn't want to catch but blipping the throttle often helps bring it to life. Normally I just use a trickle charger and that makes the whole thing moot.

The milage is low but I also wonder about your valve clearance.
