I have a sick Artic Cat

I am new to snowmobiles. I bought an 81 Artic Cat El Tigre 6000. It has a 500cc fuel oil mix motor. I have changed the plugs, and checked fuel lines. All seems fine. It was running great then all of a sudden it acts as if it is either starving for gas, or has too much. I am handy with tools. But I am not sure what to check or do here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My very first sled was an 81' El Tigre 6000. I would suggest taking the carbs off and go through them. The problem may be as simple as dirty carbs.
