    97 XP Question?

    My friends shop has a 97 xp that has issues they can't figure out. When they hit the throttle it will accelerate like normal the first time and then the second time it will bog out and only rev about half way to the redline.
    They have checked the driveline, throttle linkages, and changed the fuel.
    Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Thanx

    sounds like a fuel delivery issue.
    replace all the fuel lines and clean the tank. not just the fuel but the entire inside of the tank..

    Start with the basics. Change the spark plugs and trim back the spark plug wires.

    I'll buy it if they don't want it. I hear Ottawa is nice this time of year.

    It could also be as simple as the internal carb filters. If they haven't been changed, get it done ASAP.

    I had the same issue with my ski..There is a black box with wires coming in, if you have water in there, which ur not supposed to...That will make it bog, sputter, run bout 1/8 of top speed...Check that and make sure it is clean..It located on the left side of the ski towards the bow
