    Slt 750 sludge muffins?

    Hi. Started my slt 750 for the first time today. Noticed 3 things:
    1. Some black sludge like oily crap blew out all over the rear exhaust area. This never happened b4.
    2. Lot of air in my fuel lines. Just went thru carbs last sept. So they should be okay. No pressure from gas cap. No whoosh.
    3. You know what, I'll take some pix okay. Third one was going to be code showing up on mfd. I think its saying low oil. Its not low on oil.

    Good news... (kinda) Took the deal off where all the fuel lines go in the top of the tank and found both the primary and reserve suction hoses were totally shot. Just crumbled in my hand.
    Replaced them and reset my low speeds, (1 1/2, 1 1/4 turns out?) and seems to start and run good. Is this to far out? Dont wanna melt down!!

    Check the manual.

    Low speed settings will not usually lead to melt down.

    Usually a poor take off.
