    08 250x rough idle and power losses

    I have an 08 250x and have taken it out a few times already this year and has ran fine with no problems. All the sudden i take it out last weekend and it had a rough idle and tops out at about 50 mph. After riding a little, the power kicked back in and then out again. Did that for a while so i brought it back in so i didnt cause any more harm than whats already done. The ski ran great when the power was there but it just kept cutting out. However, it always had the rough idle but, when i would take off slowly, at about 8mph the normal power would seem like it kicked back in.

    Any ideas as to the problem would be greatly appreciated. I know the shop i go to would charge an arm and a leg to diagnose and fix it.

    Thanks in advance!

    change the plugs, and if old fuel is in the tank, remove it and replace with fresh 93 octane. Also check belt tension, (requires a special tool)

    I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.
