Rear leg high back comes undone/releases when i pop
I ride goofy and when i 'pop' off rollers or just ollie over things, my left high back automaticly releases! i haven't adjusted them in any way for this to suddenly start. they are the carbon 07 model. this is a major problem as it is highly dangerous as my back foot can and will come out of the binding, because as i'm 'popping', my feet are pulling upwards and thus out of the now open binding. it's only a matter of time till it happens at high speed off a roller and i have a serious wipeout!
Re: rear leg high back comes undone/releases when i pop
It sounds like either one of two things, with the high back. Take the adjuster off and check the teeth to see if it is stripped. If it is, Go to your local hardware store and pick up some locktite epoxy. It will be a permanent bond, but that will make them usable. The other chance is maybe it needs to be torqued down. With the possibility of your foot popping out that sounds like you bindings are not set up correctly. I had a pair hit a rock off a bc kicker, ripped the adj, off. and still was securely held down. If you are not sure how to set it up, hit up your local board shop

By the sound of your description of the problem which was that at about 4500 RPM under load the bike starts 'popping and pulling back' it seems to me that you are experiencing a lean (not enough fuel) condition. Popping and 'pulling back' are indicative of a lean rather than a rich condition. Revving the bike in neutral does not use much fuel compared to trying to throttle it under load so testing it in neutral does not mean much.
Assuming that it is a lean condition that you are dealing with I would pull the carbs off and then remove the float bowls and check out the float valves under each float to make sure they are not partially gummed up and not allowing enough fuel to flow into the float bowls fast enough to keep up with the demand when the engine is under load. Also check the main jet in each carb to make sure it is clear. All the fuel from about 1/4 throttle opening and above goes through the main jet first but from about 1/4 to 3/4 throttle the fuel is then regulated by the needle jet and slide needle. After that, from 3/4 throttle and on, the main jet is the only form of fuel regulation. Either way all the fuel needs to get through the main jet first except at idle and right off idle as that is the pilot jet circuit so the main jets need to be clean and clear.
Also, as the bike is pretty old, when you have the carbs off you need to carefully examine the rubber intake manifolds that connect the carbs to the engine for cracks and splits. These manifolds should be replaced every 10 years or so as when they split and crack it lets air in through the splits and cracks and leans out the mixture going into the engine and will cause the same popping and 'dropping out' that clogged jets in the carbs will cause.
I literally had the same exact problem yesterday and last year. Perfect from start up to about 2 hours in...then sounds like it's bogging down, then dies at a trail stop. Fired right back up in about 2 minutes. Also it happened on a lake burn..wanted to die, so I feathered the throttle, came right back to life just as strong as it should be. It has me stumped. If you figure it out, let me know and I'll do the same. Mine is an 03 Edge 800 XC SP.
this is caused by a stuck float in the carburetor. remove the carb from the machine, remove the float bowl from the carb, using carb cleaner - spray the components down and clean out any debris, make sure all parts move smooth and seals are clean, clear and not cracked,, re-assemble the unit and install back onto the sled. this will stop the constant flow of fuel.
have fun out in the snow --- ride on !!!
IT COULD BE A NUMEBER OF THINGS, I WOULD CHECK YOUR DIVE SHAFT AND JACK SHAFT BEARINGS, THAN YOUR CLUTCHES FOR WORN PARTS. IF THAT IS OK CHECK YOUR CHAIN AND SPROKETS. THAN DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON YOUR ENGINE.
Siren makes awesome boards. My GF has been ripping on one for almost 3 years and it is her favorite board ever. They only make womens boards and they do it right. I want a board as light and strong as hers. Hahhh!
It sounds like when you are hitting a jump, and carvin into the turn you are leaning way forward, causing the tension on your cables to release and allow it to "pop" open. I'd say try to adjust you forward lean.
when it stalls, is it on a warmer day? ie 20+ degrees? is it overeheating or hot? If you have never had the carbs serviced, the summer/fall may be a good time. inside the carbs, you have differnt circuits, they may be gummed up. Good luck
