I was just pulling on to the lake by my house and suddenly my sled started to bog and run like it had no power or it was running on one cylinder,thought it might be out of gas.It limped back to the house and i checked the fuel and it had lots.I always run isoproply so no water in gas.I changed both plugs and no difference.The strange thing is there were no beeps or flashing lights.I checked the compression and there was 125 both sides warm motor.It will start but no power,it just bogs and if left to idle it will stall.Any ideas.I just came back from a 200 mile ride the day before and it ran flawless.Any ideas

I bet there is something under your teather (Key) Take it off and put it back on.....I once had a Creamsaver wrapper get in there and the same thing happened....

Doo Rev you may have a point.I doo add a 8 oz bottle every fill but the doo manual states to add it so it shouldent be an issue.Mine it the ltd edition unit that was released in 04 with only one filter.I think they added extra filters in 05.Renegade scotty ,reread my post,I did change plugs.I never remove my teather strap so thats not it.

Anyone else on the filter issue.I can,t be the only person with this issue.
The sled won,t run more than 20 mph and the throttle has to be feathered in to get it to move at all.
