To me it sounds like a lean condition, does it have dual carbs on it? If so it may have a plugged jet in that carb causing it to be way too lean. If it has a single carb, it might have a torn manifold boot between that cylinder and the carb sucking air leaning it out. Are you using the stock oil injection, and if so does it have seperate lines going to each cylinder? If the line going to that cylinder is plugged it would eat things up in a hurry. I don't know much specifically about the Kawasaki snowmobiles, but these are the first things I would check on my Arctic Cat if I was having the same problem. If you check all this out and can't find anything wrong, I would check the crank seal on that side of the engine, if it was put in wrong when it was rebuilt, or torn that may be the problem. Hope this helps.
