I HAD A PROBLEM THIS WEEKEND WITH HIGH RPM RUNNING AND WAS WONDERING IF THIS COULD BE DO TO THE LOOSE SNOW.

HOW CAN I CHECK IF MY SLED HAS CARB HEATERS?

IF IT DOESN'T WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO WARM UP THE CARBS?

I'M SHOOTING IN THE DARK ON THIS RPM PROBLEM

THANKS,

ADAM

Look at you're carbs. Is there a hose going to and from the carbs with a red knob on one hose? If there is, they are heated. Align the arrow WITH the hose for on. Oh, is you're sled a zx or an S2000?

I would guess they are heated. Look for that red knob. On in powder and when it's REALLY cold, off every other time.

If your carbs freeze, use a hairdryer to warm them up and evaporate the water. Sounds weird, but it works awesome! Worked for my frozen throttle cable last weekend.

I don't think the '99s are heated. I just looked at a friends '99 600 and the carbs were unheated round-slides.
