A friend of mine had to rent one while on a trip a few weeks ago, and it did the same thing...... LOUD too !! We couldn't seem to figure out why, but this sled had over 9000 miles on it, so we thought maybe it was just getting tired. It did go through injection oil like we could'nt beleive. Over a gallon in 300 miles !! But it always back fired when starting after being warm.

Yup, it had a full tank of oil when he picked it up at the rental place, and we checked it periodically throughout the weekend and put more than 4 quarts of oil (Amsoil HP Injector), he's an Amsoil Dealer, in it. We were thinkin the rental place richened up the pump to keep the engine from grenading in the hands of inexperienced renters, but holy crap thats a TON of oil !! He had to return it with a full tank. He had brought his own oil, and ended up buying a quart at a Arctic Cat dealer near the rental shop. I dunno

Yes, check your pump calibration. And NEVER ride behind a sled burning as much oil as that rental did, although you could always see where you've been with the smoke trail, or die from breathing it in mile after mile. We will talk about that sled for years.:bleh:

Do you let it idle down before shutting off?

And, wife's F-5 is terrible on oil too,
been trying to get it set back with cable adjustments.
Getting there but still need some more!

We would stop. and it would idle for a minute a two, and then shut it off, and it would backfire pretty much every time it was restarted. Other than the thirst for oil, and the shotgun blast when starting it that thing ran great actually.
