Ha ha! lol. I think the sled doing the hauling would burn more gas than it typically would, lol. I think I'll just leave it the way it is. Y'know a 600 carbed is going to be harder on gas than a 900 injected anyway... heck the 900 injected is easier on gas than the 500 carbed. It just sucks that the 500 burns $1 more (well, gas just went up, but one week ago... lol) than the 900 at 73 miles, and the 600 burns $14 more than the 900 after 73 miles. How come every month for the past two months, and now this one, gas is going up ten cents a litre??? Rip off!!! There's no reason for gas to EVER be more than $1/L especially with the current economy in relation to the past 15 years. So why is it now going past $1.20/L??? Mafia... mafia... mafia... and the government...(a part of mafia). It's going to cost me an extra $21 this weekend just because of the increase in gas prices overnight.tow it with another sled! lol[/b]
Not just carbed... I get better mileage above 50MPH than I do at any speed bellow 50mph. I believe it's the clutching, altered efficiency point vs rpm.easiest and most effective way is to have a granny thumb. Although some sleds I have seen actually use less gas running harder, mostly because they are carbed. Carbs really really suck when it comes to anything but full throttle and idle. They rely on all sorts of airflow venturis and crap that really doesnt work well at all for mid range throttle.
So the sleds that run at no throttle or full throttle almost exclusivly are working at the carbs most effective range. Keep in mind though this only works if you have the carbs tuned perfectly.[/b]
