Hard starts and speed issues
Hey guys , been looking for some answers and greenhulk.
2012 300x, 98 hours, last weekend she didn't want to crank over, inspected spark plugs and the were fouled . Changed and started first crack, ski ran ok but felt laggy. Come yesterday I had anther hard start only on first crank of the day (exhaust filter?) rest of the day started ok, first ride I felt a power surge of take off, after this the ski wouldn't past 60kms, at that speed it was fluttering/ surging ? Could this be anther issues apart from the filter? Cheers

When was the last time the filter was replaced or checked ?

Filter was replaced at 50hrs, although then I could still hit higher speeds than 60km/h (37mph) I get it serviced as manual specs.

with all due respect , getting it serviced as per manual is only 10% of the overall maintenance plan...
" IF " a person has poor post ride care , you will do 100% of the none warranty damage sadly
and it 40hrs filter life with less then perfect care factor i bet its toast.....

With all due respects brother what I mean is it gets serviced every 25 hrs without a doubt.. Post ride care, I flush both engine (blow out water) intercooler and fog after every ride . Salt or fresh
