    Question More questions on 02 xlt fuel issues

    I post my first question in the performance section..

    Issue I am having is ski will run fine, but after 15-20min of riding it drops down to 5-6k rpms and wont rev out - will set there and idle fine. It was sugested to have carbs rebuilt - just want to rule out everything else before they are rebuilt again. Stayed up late and read up on some stuff (mostly the gpr).


    would any of these apply to my problem?

    Fuel trap door
    fuel selector switch
    powervalves

    Compression is 120 on all three. Just put in a d-plate. Cat was pretty plugged. Carbs were rebuilt by dealer not too long ago ($700 ouch).

    And one more question - is there anything to catch water in the fuel on these machines?

    Sorry for bunch of questions. I new to these. Used to working on stuff - owned quads for years...

    For the PV's there is a test you can do on the motor to make sure it is ok. It is in the manual.

    One other way to test them 100% is to disconnect the PV motor when you are having issues and put them in the open position. It will run like crap on the bottom but should rev up just fine.

    If you are really worried about the fuel selector switch then bypass it.

    For the door - I know its an issue on the GPR not sure if it is the same on the XLT.

    If you are any bit mechanical you can take the carbs off in 90 minutes. Without rebuilding them you could at least get the fuel pump side off and have a look @ the carb filters. They can get plugged up in one tank full of gas.

    When you replaced the cat did you make sure nothing was in the waterbox and the bottom of the stinger ?

    u have to up the octane gas when switiching to a d-plate, even though it dosent say. It sounds like thesprings in the carbs are starting to wear.
