I just recently bought this used sled. It acts like it is not always "warmed up". My dad and I have never had a sled with power valves. Is there a routine or periodic servicing of the APV that should be done. The sled has 1600 miles on it and is carburated.
Also should i be using 93 octane gas or is it O.K. to continue with 87 octane ? Please help.

I have a 02 ZR 500 carb, first thing pull exhaust valves clean and check pins this motor has a problem with the pins wearing or sometimes they will break.My sled has 1500 mi on it upon inspection of valves when I cleaned them pto side pin hand worn other side was ok.I replaced both pins with new ones.Also I just put 87 octane in my sled runs ok on that . Other than the pin issue I have no other problems with this sled good luck .
