99 rmk running rich

Here is the deal, I have a 99 rmk 600 which i bought new at the beginning of the season. It has run fine so far, i now have about 600 miles
on it and it is running rich. I thought it might be snow conditions, heavy, making it load up but I ran it nice fluffy stuff and it still is smoking
more than it used to. Has anyone else had this problem? I am running bone stock and I would prefer not to have to rejet etc. Any help
would be appreciated. Thanks james

Re: 99 rmk running rich

One of the requirements of owning a high-performance snowmobile is learning how to rejet. We all have to do it. There are various
products out there that will allow your main jets to span a greater temperature and altitude, but they all require you to know how to jet
and tune your sled to set them up. Dial-a-jets are what I run and it allows me to go from about -15F to 40F in temp range without
changing jets, but the set-up is a little tricky if you don't know what you're doing. Find a friend that has a similar machine that knows
how to tune it and learn from him. There is know way around jetting problems without spending money or time...or both.

If you can't buy what you want, BUILD IT!!
