    Need help

    Hi,
    I have a 2000 Polaris Genesis 1200 with 3-carbs.
    It has been sitting for 4 years.
    I have put fresh gas in it and it has new plugs.
    It starts very easily with 3/4 choke.
    And it will idle on it's own with no problems.
    It will not come up on the rpm's it puffs a lot of smoke out the back which appears to be oil and not gas.
    Is there any type of valve or linkage that meter's the oil that can be adjusted?


    Thank's much in advance.

    Is there any type of valve or linkage that meter's the oil that can be adjusted?


    Thank's much in advance.

    Sounds like he may be on his way to getting back up and running. Had a good conversation on the phone. Sounds like a hell of a nice ski. Under 10 hours on it and Eric is the original owner. Bought it,ran it some and life came along,,,,(kids). The cool part is us Polaris Guys have a new brother in the area. He should be pretty close to were Redline lives...About 1 1/2 hours from me.

    I appreciate the offer.
    I use to know a few guy's from the Ogden area.
    I think they use to sell ATV'S/Snowmobiles.
    The dad was farming and had a few hot rod's.
    He had two boy's also into hot rodding/ drag racing.
    I just can't remember their names.
    Guess I must be getting old.

    Yep, know them pretty good. Ed, Cory, Mike and Joe.

    They sold their dealership to VanWall a few years back, and Ed retired from farming just a year ago. They are still into sleds and such though.
