There is a small wire underneath the main coolant hose. I was wondering if this wire being disconnected could cause bogging or running crappy. Thanks! I dunno

Any help? If you are standing on the sled the wire is next to the right hand cylinder underneath the coolant hose.

Would that be why the temp light is always on? But I still have a bogging problem. It'll run fine, but won't go over 50. It starts to moan, and run flat and dull. The won't idle right until it sits and runs for a few minutes. It wants to die, but it'll all of a sudden idle fine like someone flicked a switch any ideas?

MAybe ? Now you said that there is a wire under the coolant hose but you never said what condition it is in ??? i.e. Shorted to something, Burnt, Chaffed, Cut in half ?? you get it . Also have you traced it out ? That would atleast give you some where to sart ttroubleshooting. Has anyone before you ever messed with electrical stuff under the hood and maybe miss- routed a wire ? With out seeing it it's knida tough . I think I got the same manual for mine and might be able to look through it with you and help a little more.

The wire is perfect. Squeezed the tip so it'll hold better though. It ties into a harness that runs under wat would be the dash. I dont think if anyone has messed with it. It all looks stock/correct though.

320's that's wat the dealer told me for 0-20 degrees. That's wat i run or colder. No we opened up the carbs checked 'em and they were good. This has been happening since the end of last year. It'll run great till it fouls out the plugs.

when i had the stock carbs on mine i couldnt belive how pig ass eich the sled was with 320's its almost pathetic how much fuel it going to the motor. i ran 300's at -5F and the plugs looked great and never saw above 1000*F cruising and 900* WOT. trust me drop your mains to 300's and try it again i will bet it runs a whole lot better. AZR440 knows his **** too he helped me with the set-up on my flat slide carbs.
