  • bogging

    I have a 2003 700 RMK, when i hill climb in deep powder,and really work the motor hard it starts to bog and loses all power, like it flooding out or somthing. Why is this happening,i dont have a clue and i am sure there is sombody in here that does. thanks in advance

    Powder plugging up the air inlet? Just a possibility...curious though! Just be thankful you have powder...I guess.

      Bog is normally lean, but the way you described it, it sounds almost like snow plugging up the exhaust. If I just turn right side cookies in the pow, my sled plugs up that way.
      The other thing could be snow swirl getting up into your air box?

      Does your motor actually die out?
      Or does the power just fall on it's face?

        I think it would die if i kept it pegged, but when this happens i let off and let it idle or keep it at a low rev for about 20-30 secs,then i can go like hell again.

          Could it be getting so hot that it super heating the fuel and vapor locking?

          I don't know that sled that well dose it have EFI or carbs?.... If its carb'ed could it be that the sled is so vertical that the carbs can't work right?


          I'm no expert...just trying to help...I hope ya get it fixed because theres nothing like going for a hand full and getting nothing

            It has carbs,and it has done this when i am braking trail in deep powder,when i was working the motor really hard.The getting hot thing maybe, i just dont know enough about 2 stroke motors.Thanks for your .02 I need everybody's .02 so i can get this figured out.

              I, having only 120 miles on this year(HORRIBLE!!!), think you need to send some of that powder to NY and it won't be plugging the exhaust on your RMK(nice sled by the way), and you won't have a problem....sounds like the powder is a bit too much for it. I had an old '86 Indy 600 and it did the same thing in deep snow...like it was choked out. Good luck.

                Bogging

                This may sound crazy, but does it bog when you lift to corner and then grab it again to climb after its been going a while?

                If it is, check your clutches, when was the last time you had them serviced?
                hot clutches kill power and it can feel exactly like a fuel problem.. if the spring is weak in the secondary and the plastic buttons are wiped out it will fall right on its face because it wont backshift properly, when you lift for 30 secs or so the clutch will backshift eventually....This happens all the time when we run watercross in the summer and a lot of watercross tecnique is like deep powder riding,so do a primary & secondary spring and change the buttons on the secondary and clean both well to fix the problem.... let me know what happens

                  What mackenzienh said. Its all in your clutches. Its not back shifting. I got a 2002 rmk700 , I run a 52/36 helix silver/blue 3rd hole. No more bogging. I run at 0-2000 ft.
                  make sure there clean and moving freely
