I check it with skid out but can't remember how it felt. I remember it rolled freely though. No signs of bearing chatter or anything but either way its getting all fixed. I remember my cousin telling me the chain was stretched so put a new one in and if i can remember correctly, the oil looked kinda shitty then so the seal was probably already going, just not sure if that would make the whole sled do this consistently, and the shaft still spins free. I've never messed with the carb except dropping the main down a size or two. No backfire, sounds like engine is running good, just something isn't letting the sled ride the way it should. I've thought about the carbs but seems midthrottle is good, just seems to get pulled down if i steady throttle it. I can't remember the speed/RPMS off top of my head but ill try to get somewhat close. If slowly givin it gas when cruising, lets say takin it up to about 50mph at 6500RPMS, then look at the tach and watch it drop down to 5000RPM like its a manual tranny upshifting into overdrive and speed will just kind of hang there. Then crack the throttle and RPMs climb fast and the speed kind of goes up fast but its like it runs out of clutch and tops out at 80/90. It feels just like a clutching problem but can't be!! At first i thought it was a clutch problem cuz they were dirty has hell but after a few clutch rebuilds and clutch swaps, no such luck. It does it with the current clutch on it too and i know that is a good clutch, thing looks beautiful! The engine and all has been rebuilt but still does it. First few times, ran like a top and the only thing i did was put gas in it. Then started doing it and still all i did was put gas in it, no tinkering, all different times of day/temps.
