    Another MSX takes a crap

    Not a good month for us MSX guys, but I do have my suspicion's on this one. Last time I had it out almost 2 months ago at idle, my 04 died on me 4 or 5 times but would always start right back up after a few seconds and run fine. Today, getting ready to go to Havasu in a couple of weeks, started it, fired right up and never went off high idle, it went right to about 5000 rpms down to about 3000, quickly hit the throttle and back up to 5000, then down two 3-2500 back up to 4 and so on. Is this a symptom of a faulty TPS, I do keep one on hand because if I remember they did have a problem on the 03's. This ski is still under warranty so I am not going to touch it so I can get my last dig in Polaris and make them fix it.

    Yea, not good, but I am taking your approach Chris, they can have it for a while. I needed a spot on my trailer, I have to bring a friends ski so one of mine had to stay home, and it was killing me to leave the Matrix, to make everybody happy I was going to take the stock 04, the freinds I go with are very conservative skiers and don't like it when I bring it and run circles around the group, but now I have no choice have to bring the Matrix. Just trying to turn a negative into a positive.

    msx down

    unplug your tps and see if it idles down. chances are it will. then when it does replace the tps. make sure it is part number 2202740.
