    Getting ready for the first ride.

    Well I have been doing some maintance on the 95 slt I bought a few weeks back. I installed the triple fuel pump, new fire extinguisher, new drain plug. new spark plugs. I still need to replace all the fuel hoses (I kinda ran short on clamps when replacing the fuel pump and carbs with new hose ). I Also need to empty the water separater. And get some tie down for the trailer. Now I would like to see what the best way to get the throttle cable to have a little more zip in it. Its not sticky but I think its rather lazy compared to newer models. I tried to put some oil down the tube but im not sure actually how much made it down it.

    You need to find a product named CableLife. It works wonders. I think I got my last can from the Polaris dealer, but you might be able to find it at a local auto parts store for a little cheaper. It is aresol, and very easy to get down inside the cable housing.

    Make sure to lube the carb throttle plates too.

    They may be getting a bit sticky.
