Question about Yamaha 2005 RS Venture

1 Answer

My yamaha ovation is bogging out at fast speeds. Also an electrical problem.

My Yamaha ovation snowmobile is having trouble maneuvering at high speed. When i "Punch" the throttle it doesn't respond very fast and it boggs out. We think it is the choke because when we pulled it out there was a metal piece on the end of the choke that wasn't supposed to be there. could that be the problem? Also the electrical problem is at random times the snowmobiles lights on everything will just shut off. any ideas? bad ground maybe?
