My oil pump got stuck by a hose under it, so it would not return back to idle. ( I ask this in the polaris section) I ran the oil out and put new plugs in. she is very boggy about 3/4 of the time, the rest she runs with full power. the clutch side piston doesn't have alot of carbon on it, but the other does. I don't think she is running on 1 cyl. because she doesn't backfire. I have to choke it to get it to move. the jetting is about right 280. I is harder to start than most times. It sarted running bad when I was driving, about 3/4 throttle, let off then hit it again and she bogged. It runs better at high speeds. (20-40 mph) power is on and off.
Did I gunk up the carbs or fuel pump? Could it be the clutch? I need to fix it so I can ride!
thanks for any help.
hey just run a compression check cuz you have a weak piston. There is either a gash or a crack in the cylinder and/or piston. I had the same happen to me. It sound like the one with out the carbon is the troubled one. Pistons can burndown on the sides, not just the top.
I found the prob, the needle in 1 carb was not connected because the c clip was gone. Runs better but it is rough when you are keeping a consant rpm. I am wondering if the clip went though the engine.........
The clip could have gone through, but I had that happen to my '93 xlt and after I replaced the clip it ran fine. My suggestion is to run a compression test you might have scored the side of a piston when the clip went through.
