2001 Artic Cat ZRT 800 Triple issue.
So I had a rough time getting the sled started as my father did not keep them started throughout the year. I bought the sled with 2400miles on it and once It started everything seemed fine. Rode about 33 miles and the throttle got stuck open and around 4-5k and wouldnt go any high or lower when I hit the gas. I slowed down and hit the kill switch.
Upon inspection of the 3 cylinders I found that cylinder 1 was not as hot as 2 and 3. I Pulled the plug it was fouled out with oil. changed the plug. started the sled it went to 4k rpms. I went to turn around and go home and it stopped doing it. Throttle response went back to better than ever. I rode 170 more miles on top of it without that issue happening again.
However I did notice that the sled wasn't running at its fullest potential and a couple times at 60-70 mph I gave it gas and it didnt want to go. After letting off and hitting it again it went just fine. That night it ran lean I hit 100mph needle pretty quick on the lake. Next day it was a bit warmer and I had a hard time hitting 100.
I'm honestly at a loss here lol, everything on the sled was properly maintained and garage kept, only 2400miles. Just trying to get a ballpark Idea of what to look for or do this weekend when I head up north.
ALLL HELP APPRECIATED!!!!
