    ski bogging down HELP??

    my 96 polaris 700slt starts and idles ok but when i take off it runs good for about 15-20 seconds and then bogs down alot for about 20 seconds and then repeats about the same cycle is it possible that my problem is the ignition coil not delivering spark consistantly?

    My first guess would be fuel delivery or carburetor problems.

    What is the service history of this ski?

    On my Hurricane 700, I had the same issue. My fuel line was leaking near the On/Off/Reserve valve. Check ALL your fuel hose clamps, and Im almost certain that you will find one that is even just a little loose. Have you changed your fuel line recently? Fuel filter?

    If all those checks turn up no solution, check your Hi/Low screws on your carbs, maybe they are not set correctly.
