Re: 99\' Summit 500 flooding
i would expect more out of a fellow engineer, hehe.
mine only flood when they are dumped over or when past about 45 degrees. these sleds are fine at reasonable angles.
and yes, actually i have my bike apart rite now so i checked my reeds. they do actually hold gas. as for the gassitting just infront of the reeds, when you turned it over the gas would come in and be at least partially atomized by the reeds and the vaccum/spinning of the crank. thus being much more explosive.
if it is carb adjustment, then evey skidoo sled(formula, mxz, summit, skandik) built with the rotary 500, 583, 670 and 670ho has the problem. were talking from 96 to 2001! this is the bulk of what skidoo sold in that time frame. kinda think they would figure it out in that time span? especially when skidoo's 440 race motor was also using rotary valves. thats a helluva number of bad needles and seats right from the factory
ask any dealer my friends. its part of the reason rotax went to reeds, cuz they sure don't make more power
