    Hey Guys - New Problem

    Sorry for being back We encountered a new problem. 2 nights ago we took the XP out because it was like glass on the lake. It ran great like it always does for like the first 30-45 mins of riding. Did a couple of WOT passes and some playin around. After about 45 mins of riding I did another WOT passs against my Aunts 06 GTX Cuz my dad wanted to see how they compare, and right when I hit WOT it bogged down. I dont know how I can explain it other then the RPM's just dropped and it made a funny noise I let off the throttle to slowly bring the RPM's back up and again as soon as I hit WOT it did the same thing. What could this be please and ty.

    Haven't you been here long enough to know to pull the spark plugs and inspect when a problem occurs?

    So pull them now and shoot us a pic.

    We can speculate on about 6-10 different things it could be. But you can eliminate many by doing simple diagnostics yourself...

    we just replaced the spark plugs a couple weeks ago. Im thinkin fuel lines maybe? I dont know a whole lot but could it be the rave valves getting stuck shut?

    Its not a matter of how new the plugs are. You can eliminate or pinpoint many problems by checking the condition of the plugs when u have a problem. Dry white plugs may indicate a lean problem which may point toward fuel system issues, while wet black plugs may indicate an ignition problem. Without looking at the plugs u may as well throw darts at a pic of your unit and look for problems there!!!!

    we have been over this before and you and(or) your dad keep avoiding the issue....clean your carbs and change your fuel lines.

    we are planning on doing that over the winter when we cant use it, but until then we wanted to try get as much use in the last couple weeks of the riding season, but I guess our riding season is done

    We pulled the spark plugs today and my dad says he doesnt remember spark plugs being as dark or wet as they were. Where do we go from there?

    Clean carbs & replace all fuel lines.

    Keep riding it & you can rebuild the top end as well.....

    Its really not that rough of a job Takes about and hour to an hour and a half to replace the lines just do them one at at a time
