Re: MXZ 700 Fuel Mileage
There is two recalls... One is for spurratic shifting on the secondary clutch.. I guess its no big deal really, But it is noticeable... The other recall is on the Carburators.. I guess somehow during manufacturing, there is some silicon or piece of gasket or something that gets in the carburator, after sometime I guess it makes its way into the jetting, and your machine runs extremely lean, and burns out a piston. I think its the left side, but I could be wrong. Something I noticed about my buddies before it blew up is that it idled really really high. like around or above 2000 RPM. I dont know if that had something to do with the recall.. but now that he got it back it idles properly.. Your friend should definately call his dealer and find out if his was "fixed" before he picked it up.
Anyway, talk to you later.
