Hey guys! I just bought an 06 440 MXZX and I fired it up n cruised around the house today because northern MN got hit with a snow storm but when I primed it 3 times before starting it, gas came out of the primer button. Just wondering if that's normal? It may be a newby question but I'm not too sled smart. Any help is appreciated!

If it is leaking around the stem when you pump it, it will probably stop leaking when the parts inside swell up. They dry out from sitting a long time. I have had about 10 sleds with primers,and had that problem many times after they sat all summer. I bought a primer the first time and never had to change one. They usually stop after a couple of start ups.

Thanks guys! I will see if it goes away after a few start ups! I'm posting a pic of my sled on the 'show your 440' topic! Check it out! My first ski doo and I love it. Going to be putting a spring order in on a 2014 Mxz Xrs in April. Stoked
