2001 Mxz 800
Im new here, new to newer sleds.. had an older one when i was young but never had to look after it.. so now i need some insight on my problem.
Ok heres the deal.
Just bought a 2001 ski-doo MXZ 800. It had a full engine rebuild 1100 miels ago. Went to look at it, it ran perfect and everything seemed fine. I bring it home, its been sitting for 2 weeks since we still dont have enough snow. Other day (saturday) i went out and started it up... let it run.. after about 30 seconds of letting it run it starts back firing and then dies on itself. It does this about 3 times until it makes a loud pop. I removed both plugs and if your sitting on the seat the plug on my right was dry but the plug on left was wet with gas. So i noticed that the wires were kinda frayed so i replaced the spark plug wires as the plugs look to be pretty much new. I go to start it and it starts and stops after 2 seconds. Did it about 3 times and then there was the pop again. Im getting pretty frustrated as i havent even rode the machine yet. Anyone have any insight to this? I want to get it running before the snow hits. Ill be picking up new plugs tomorrow afternoon and replace the gas that is in the machine
