I know we've discussed this before, but I wanted to post some pics of what my sled looks like when I start it.
I had the ECU update, but have yet to try the Hotwires as suggested by another member.

I know these sleds don't all take to the ECU update, but this is excessive....It looks like its on fire !

Fresh Start...

After a few minutes of warm-up revs

Also when riding I have smoke coming out of my hood through the steering post hole. Any ideas why or where there may be a leak?
I tried to take off the hood and see, but I cant locate anything as nothing is really standing out as "leaking".

Mine never received the ECU update and was as bad (if not worse) than yours was prior to your update.

Pm Insanecat and ask him how mine runs with just the wires as he had saddle time Saturday with it. :)

So I take it from the smiles that they are a good investment.

Every time I've used them for improvement to clean up a certain area without affecting others that are just fine imo, they've never let me down. :trophy:

Rusty's never smoked like that when he fired it up. After a few minutes of warm-up, I climbed on and away we went without hardly any smoke! And it didn't run too bad either,actually I was impressed with the lil 500 mill! But not quite as peppy as my 900 though! Posted Image

Winter looks to have returned here last night. Baseball sized hail and extremely high winds last night has left a lot of folks near where I work without power still.

Only hoping it gets here early this coming season and runs late. WITH LOTS of frozen WHITE GOLD for us to de-virginize!! :trophy:

Does anyone have a part number for the right hotwires for the SP5 ?
Took out my sled last night and was pretty pissed it STILL smokes like that. The low end bog is also still there too. After about 5 minutes it clears up a bit but there is still some noticeable smoke even when its warm..

Also, I can't just pop the throttle from a standstill without it wanting to bog down. I have to blip it a few times to get the revs up and then go..

I DID change from Amsoil Interceptor to Klotz TCW3, could that be an issue? Should there be any adjustments I am missing. I dont remember it smoking or bogging like this with the Amsoil, but some have said that it wasn't as good an oil as the Klotz, and I have always had good luck with it until now. But, I have also fouled 2 sets of plugs which has never happened before....

I am going to try to run the Klotz for now since I have a full tank of it, and maybe just switch back to the Cat 50:1 oil.

This is weird though.
