I'M NOT SURE WHEN THE TIMING THING ADVANCES. I HAVE MAYBE 4 HOURS ON IT.
THANKS FOR ANY HELP,
I THINK IT WAS WARM ENOUGH. DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG BEFORE THE ENGINE IS BROKE IN. NO SNOW TO REALLY RIDE YET. SEND SOME TO NEW YORKrake1 said:Does it happen if the engine is warmed up real good? Mine does it as did my 04 but only when it was cold or semi warmed up.Big john says it is a cold bog so i am going up one size on Pilot jets this should help. Mine doesn't do it if it is HOT.
I'M BRINGING THE RPM UP NEAR ENGAGEMENT. I'M RUNNING 92 OCTANE. IT IDLES AROUND 2000 RPM. I HAVE 4 HOUR ON IT. WHEN IS THE BREAK IN POINT?BIG JOHN said:steve- Are you at idle (1500 rpm) when you punch it?? or are you bringing the RPM up to clutch engagement before punching it??
If its the first scenario....try just raising the rpm to 3500 before racing.....if it still does it verify low speed setting and turn it out 1/2 turn to see if it helps...loose belt deflection will cause a bog too...are you running 92 octane?? and check hr meter on the speedo..it will tell you how many hours you have ridden-BJ
I do and have been doing so for 10 years. The new powertechs take along time to break in unless you really load them. The guys that baby them run the risk of glazing the cylinders and never letting the mototr reach peak performance.does anyone use the 'break it in hard' method?
well i hope mine goes away too . i only have 130 miles on it. my friend said dont touch anything intil after the sled breaks in. does anyone know how long that really is.player said:My PTk would bog just when you hit it fom a slow roll on,this occurred twice,motor was always completley warmed up.It does not happen any more,I now have 650 miles.
