Snowmobile troubleshooting

There could be a couple of reasons for this to happen, what is your RPM at Max Speed?
If your RPM are Maxing out, you are having problems with your Belt or Primary Clutch
If your RPM are NOT Maxing out, then you have a fuel blockage and / or your High Speed Jets are too small for your Altitude.

Looses power

You are either Losing Power (Engine) or Primary is Failing.

If you are losing it after it warms up, look at the RPM. If the Engine RPM is staying HIGH, then you have a Primary Clutch Issue.
If you are Losing RPM, then you are losing Compression. Best thing to do is look at the Compression of the Engine and if the Compression is LOWER on one Cylinder (Normally the PTO SIDE) then you are going to be doing a top end rebuild.
There is a slight 3rd scenerio (CDI is going bad).

Motor runs fine bu sometimes wont move

It could be the belt is worn too thin and the clutch won't engage. Try a new belt and see if that solves the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a fuel injected snowmobile and the motor will idle roughly but as soon as i hit the throttle it bogs out....very frustrating

I would say check your plugs first. Then you might see if you need to get the injector cleaned at a parts house. You could have a sensor bad as well. Start with the cheap stuff and work your way up.

Can't seem to keep consistent rpms on my 2003xcr

maybe clean the air box, the carbs will take in dirty air and then a whif of clean air, haha if its doin 100 or 105, your fine. it could also be your clutches, have your primary checked out, bushings, buttons, springs, weights, rollers, they all play a part in rpm performance and speed

I have a problem with my 1982 yamaha xl3

There are two clutches on a snowmobile. The primary and secondary. The primary is the one on the engine, the secondary is the bigger one closer to the rider.
Your belt should sit "just above" the top edge of the secondary clutch, and at the bottom/center of the primary clutch when the snowmobile is not running. You can normally tell if the belt is worn by looking at where it sits on the secondary. If the top of the belt is below the top edge of the secondary clutch, it's worn and should be replaced. Belts are typical wear parts and are just replaced (not adjusted) when worn. I go through a few belts a winter and ALWAYS carry a spare.

How to change the clutch cable on a 2003 Buell Firebolt.

drain primary fluid,remove clutch inspection cover make sure not to lose spring hex when removing,with small screw driver turn adjuster so the hex nut screws out (left handed threads) remove ball and ramp off cable careful not to drop anything into primary.okay now go up cable to mid-range adjuster and back off (together) then go up to clutch lever and remove there a snap ring that you should replace and be mindful of cable rounting then go back down to primary cover and remove,when putting new one in be sure not to over tighten and don't forget o-ring, after all reinstalled to adjust clutch screw adjuster in to it lightly seats and back off 1/4 to 1/2 turn and adjust mid range until you have a 1/16 to 1/8 freeplay at lever pull and release three times to make sure the ramp and ball have seated good luck

Clutch engages to far from the hand grip

if you follow clutch cable down you will find your mid range adjustment use 1/2 in and 9/16 in wrench and back off now go down to your primary cover and remove inspection cover (where clutch cable goes into primary cover) take off cover and spring hex nut.with screw driver turn adjusting screw counterclockwise until lightly seated back off 1/4 to 1/2 turn replace spring hex lock (spring facing out) go back to mid-range adjuster on cable adjust so you have an 1/8 in free play (you can use a nicheol) to set freeplay at lever pull lever in three times to check and set
