Your 04 should not have a sock, only a dual pickup. The easiest way to troubleshoot a fuel problem is to use a pressure gauge, and the dealer can do this and a few more things in 1/2 hour, which is cheap ~$40 with tax. Within 10 min they can tell you if the problem is with the HP pump and regulator, or with the fuel filter. Within a 1/2 hour they can also tell you how the injectors are performing. Injectors are a little more complicated than a simple test on BUDS, but at least they can direct your search in the right direction.

The bonus in high season is the good dealers are not looking for more work, and they will be happy to accommodate you with a 1/2 hour slot in their busy schedule to run some easy tests.

For $35 dollars you will have a much better idea what to fix, and the sled can be brought home and the money spent on parts and a few tools. For instance, say the fuel filer is at fault, then you can purchase only the filter 709 000 100 from BRP or $20 and buy some Oteiker clamps and pliers at your local hardware store to plumb it securely.

Or you can find an affordable fuel pressure gauge and hose at your auto store, along with some regular collars to plump the gauge and perform the tests yourself. You will have plenty pocket change left to buy some Oteiker clamps and pliers at your local hardware store for when the testing is done and it's time to plump the new filter securely.

There are many ways to go about troubleshooting this problem without breaking the piggy bank and cancelling your next ride because of lack of funds for fuel. And there is no lack of help on this forum. Once you have a plan, it can be executed while having a good time.

Great advice except for the part about the $20.00 filter, they are much more than that $60.00 plus but still worth changing it out.

If your local auto store does not have a t and fittings that is needed to plumb a fuel pressure gauge, ask them where is the nearest shop that services hydraulic oil pumps pumps for heavy equipment, and they should have everything you need for plumbing. Those guys are usually very resourceful in more areas than you would image, so tell them what you are up to and you never know how much help they can provide.

I completely agree, the filter on a 600 SID and 1000 SDI comes as an assembly with part number 513 033 133 and will run you closer to $80 with taxes. Part # 709 000 100 is only the filter, but it needs to be plumbed securely with Oteiker clamps.

But guess what Waldo, we may have come-up with a brilliant plan for the OP! The filter assembly comes with two female disconnects, and that would be perfect to plumb a fuel pressure test gauge in a hurry. With a quick trip to the auto store or hydraulic shop, he could have that gauge plumbed by them right on the spot and for peanuts. The bonus is it would take 2 min to install and begin testing.

Check the TPS wire that runs up between the throttle bodies. Turns out there was a service bulletin from BRP regarding them for chafing and exposing the copper. Took me about a month of frustration earlier this season to solve the same problem. Did all the normal stuff, took to dealer and watched them run a complete diagnostic check up on BUDS system. Now since I found that no more power loss but I have to take it back and have TPS zeroed.

when i said sock, i was referring to the dual screened pickup on fuel pump, so i pulled that out today and is was clean and in good shape. so I am still chasing this top end bog/hesitation. my compression is 105psi on both cylinders. could this be causing it? i know a top end will be in order soon, but do you think this could be source of bog?
