09 MXZ gas guage only registers HALF full

07 April 2021 - 02:25 PM

Hi All,

summer project:


my gas gauge on my 09 MXZ 800 only registers HALF full when totally full (even after a good burb!)- so after about 50 miles the "gas" light comes on and the gauge shows empty-- but i still have half a tank of gas.


any suggestions on how to fix????





09 MXZ 800 sucking way to much fuel???

27 January 2021 - 11:02 AM

Hi All, Newbie alert:


New to me 09 Mxz 800


We did about 40 miles last night- mostly trails and corn fields-- pretty mild riding with the kids-- a few times i opened it up on the fields.


QUESTION: did 40 miles and went through half tank of gas... that seems like alot.... my sons older yamaha 600 sips gas compared to this


is that just the way a normal 800 burns through it or do i have another issue?????


NOTE: i dont smell or see any leaking gas.


any help or advice appreciated thx!



Carbides always getting stuck when loading- what am I doing wrong- NEW

25 January 2021 - 03:10 PM

Hi All,


NEWBIE warning :)


Everytime i put my 09 MXZ up on my trailer- the carbides grab the edge of my Triton trailer and i have to manually lift the ski up- to get them 'over' the lip so they dont catch.


so is it a trailer tilt issue, or carbide issue or rider issue.?? See pic for edge of trailer- you can see where carbide grabs and wont let sled keep going up.


sorry dont know how to rotate the photo. ugh


thx all for the help!

09 MXZ Upper A Arm mount bent--- can i drill out rivets and straighten

06 January 2021 - 07:41 AM

Hi all, I kissed a tree and bent top a arm.

I bought new A arm

The "front" bushing mount location of that A arm (where A arm connects to sled with bolt) is bent alittle- and new A arm wont fit in now.

QUESTION: can i drill out the rivets and take the BLACK angle bracket off and straighten and just REBOLT (not rivet (dont have that big of a rivet tool) the black angle piece back in??

I tried to bend it into submission and im making it worse.

Any thoughts??? THANKS!!
