I am having a problem starting my sled and was wondering if I can get some feed back. Here is the story.
Bought the sled with 3200 miles on it in 2007 from Mercer, WI. Everything was fine, started right up no issues. Since 2007, I put about 800 miles on it. I didn't go snowmobiling in winter 2010/2011 & so far haven't gone in 2011/2012. I have put stable in it for the summer months and did occasionally start it up and let it run for 10-15 minutes. My problem probably started in 2009/2010 where the sled just wouldn't start up unless I used starter fluid. I found out something about the choke that I can pull it out a little and it would let fuel in, and then try & start it but I still have an issue with starting. Till this day, they only way I am able to start the sled is starting fluid. I recently started it up this week and after I used the starting fluid it fired right up (a lot of white somke was coming from the exhaust, and then went down about 15 minutes after). Would anyone suggest why I am having such a problem? Is there a way to fix, maybe clean the carbs or something?
I am really trying to sell it because I'd like to buy a 2up for the wife & I.
