Default Grass run revieled problems

I took my sled out for a quik grass run and didn't get very far. It runs great and I lifted up the back ran it and everything appeared to be working right but when ran in the grass I don't get far and it doesn't even have a real good snap on the take off. The sled ( aparently) has new secondary clutch parts new buttons and new spring and the carbs were rejetted and the oil injector has been turned up for the mod blaster pipes.I don't know where I should start other than maybe changing the plugs, but if it was a fouled plug I don't think it would start would it? And I did notice when the throttle was wide open it bogged down. If it helps the sled is an xlt 600 running 38 mm carbs and psi pipes.I don't know where I should start

Is the belt worn funny? I had one that ran great on the stand, but if you rode it would hesitate and felt like a bent shaft @ about 6000 RPM... I changed belt and all was good. weird problem, but it confused me for a day.

The belt looks new and the guy went over it with me and the top side I think you would call your helix? The belt sticks up off it about 1/8 he said as the belt wears you can adjust it.I don't know a whole lot yet.. But am gaining mass knowledge fro
you guys. When I did the grass run it was about 10 outside I let it idle for a couple of minutes while I was farting around. There is oil dripping down the front side of the block below the exhuast ports , I asume it's coming out of the exhuast with that injector cranked up I didn't think it would be any seals and I sure hope it ain't a crank seal how would a guy know if was a crank seal? If it helps any I've got a video clip of it runing you can here the bog as it jumps ahead I've only got an iPhone so I can't post it but if you send me your email I can forward the clip. I'll try changing the plugs first does someone know what plug I need as I live in the country and am currently in the city I can't see what I need thanks muchly fellas.

Did you preload the spring when you put the secondary back together? If not maybe when you take off with a load on it theres no low gears.

I actually just bought it all was assembled allready. I'm going to swap the engine into my other sled probably today but I'd still like to know what the heck is going on there. I'll go out and see what rpm the clutch ingages at and start from there.

So the clutch engages at about 4300 and I just found a couple other things first a small puddle of anti freeze under it and the rubber flange pieces that go from your engine to carbs are all cracked it must be sucking air in but the antifreeze puddle has got me puzzled I checked from where it was dripping from and couldn't find it? I felt in the exhuast it felt dry? Hmm

Well the engine is out with no problems will install in other sled tomorrow. I think the anti freeze was from me opening to check it last week I hope ! It sure hurt taking those pipes off but I think I'll have a more reliable sled in the long run then if I left them on I'm going stock until I rebuild with the tough boyz installed.
