    2002 xlt 1200 problems

    so i just got a xlt 1200 from my sisters fiance and there was a problem when in the water. it would only go about 10mph. we changed the spark plugs and fuel filter and noticed that the plainer was disconnected so it was stuck up higher than normal. could that be the problem y it wasnt going any faster than 10 mph?

    Do you have an AUTO ZONE near you? They have a loaner program where you can buy the compression tester for full price.....after you return it they will give you your money back.

    Disconnect all three spark plug wires....Remove only one plug at a time....hold the throttle full open and spin the motor..check the number....replace that plug, remove the next one and do it again...
