Hey guys,
Looking for help for a friend. He has an '83 -'84 Skandic / Citation 4500. When the sled is cold it runs great. Once it's warmed up, to keep it running he has to keep pumping the primer. When it's warm it'll run great with the track off the ground. But on the ground with the weight of a rider it just bogs.
I figured you guys must know the answer. What's going on with this little Doo?

Thanks for the advice!

Normally when you have to pump the primer to get the engine to rev up it's a lack of fuel getting through the carb. Most likely dirty main jets, carb disassembly and inspection would be highly adviseable.

Cory's right and if you find the carb in good shape you might want to check the fuel lines, fuel filter (in tank) and pump. The easy way is to get a new line hooked up to the carb and gravity feed it from a small container held higher than the carb. Then work backwards from there.
