Re: 1985 polaris indy 400 bogging

Sounds like you need to pull the carb or carbs and make sure the pilot and main jet are clean and open. Make sure the gas filter is clean, and flows good. Also replace the plugs it dosent take long to fowl out when the sledd is started and stopped alot befor the its warmed up. also there is a plug that drains the bottom of the case of oil and gass this can also cause a problem. to find them there are located under the exhaust manafold and there is one per Cylinder and there is a washer in the plug also don't loose it . Hope this helps
