Boost Bottle

Has anyone tried a boost bottle on the polaris twins? How did it work?

Re: Boost Bottle

They work good on the 700's from what I hear.

Re: Boost Bottle

I ran one on a 97 700 RMK and with reeds, it really made the bottom end crisp.

Re: Boost Bottle

Check out american snowmobilers forum. LOTS of reasons why not to buy a boost bottle, and many ideas on what to do instead

Re: Boost Bottle

I ordered a boost bottle from my local polaris dealer for my '99 700 RMK. The mechanic I use says it will clean up the bottom and mid range response. I'll keep you guys posted. Have not been riding yet, but it's not because of lack of snow! We gots tons here in central Utah!

Re: Boost Bottle

Munkey, yesterday I read every single message about boost bottles on the american snowmobilers forum, all 34 pages of it!. It seemed to me that most of the people were not unhappy with the performance, but the fact that the metal boost bottle split the rubber sleeve they fit in. However, with the plastic boost bottle there were no problems. Also, they stated the boost bottle does not work as well on flat slide carbs. You can access the forum by searching under "american snowmobiler" and should find your way without much problem. Just a note, I have posted the question of boost bottles to Powderbound (Mark) on this site for hopefully a little more info on them.

Re: Boost Bottle

I've done both ways on the twins. I had a 98 700RMK and I orginally put a boost bottle on it. It cleaned the bottom end up and got rid of the 5500rpm gurgle pretty well. Later when my two buddies started fiddling with their 700s we were able to clean up the bottom end and gurgle without a boost bottle.

In general its a pretty easy fix, but it isn't necessarily necessary (got to love that grammar). I found that if you check the timing and make sure it is right, lean the pilots down, move the clip 1 lean and screw the air screw out to about 1.5 turns it cleans the 700s up nicely. That's a lot more work than just throwing a boost bottle on.

Note, on my 2000 800RMK I've had no need for a boost bottle. The flat slides are nice crisp carbs, very adjustable and let the motor run very well.

Re: Boost Bottle

I picked up my sled from the shop today (99 RMK 700) new skid plate, hyperfax, and boost bottle. I'll let you guys know how the boost bottle works out.

Re: Boost Bottle

First ride with the boost bottle installed. I liked it. It really cleaned up the bottom end. Made the sled seem quicker off the line. For the thirty-five bucks it cost me, I'd definately do it again! Now, if we could get just one more monster snow storm...
