FX HO Cruiser 2008 rough idle
Need a little advise before I drag it in and be at the mercy of the dealer.
2nd season on the ski 6 hours of run time this season 54 hours total on the ski only had the dealer 10 service to date. Idles a little rough noticed a couple of hesitations at take off then after ten minutes the take off hesitation left but still idles a bit rough. The last time I took it out is was a little boggy in the first ten minutes so it seem to be getting worse. The old fuel which was stabilize should be out by now but I did a couple of 5 gal refills so there is still diluted old fuel in the tank.
GPS at 59.8 so old performance is still there. It's not a big deal I'm just use to it running like a swiss watch. If I take to a dealer I'm afraid of a bill with no fix or a three week wait.
What should I look for first?

Change the spark plugs. They are due. The spark plugs are what cause 99% of rough idle issues in this motor. Well, that and the oil on air filter issue.

I'm on the plugs and picking them up today. Air filter looks brand new. I didn't see one water mark anywhere in the cow.

Rough idle problem gone. Plugs fixed it. Runs like a Swiss watch again. 16 dollar fix.
