Default 2006 Polaris 700 RMK

Can anyone help me?
I have a 2006 Polaris 700 RMK and it has a really really bad vibration. Have had it back to the place that I bought it from about 10 times, and to another shop in Red Deer alberta. They tell me that the vibration is worse than they have ever seen in a new sled.
There is only 460 miles on it, and they have had to replace the motor mounts 3 times. They have ripped the motor down. Crank and all is good. No one will buy it or take it in on trade. I have no idea what it could be, and nor do they. Anyone have this issue and know how to fix it Thanks so much!!

Nature of the beast with that sled/motor combo. There is a reason they dropped them after 2 years of production. One thing you should do if you already havent is the SLP torque arm.

There are also many other updates that need to be done to that sled to make it half ways decent, I am sure someone that knows all of them will chime in.

I would think it would be possibly a clutch issue. If the motor has been verified, I would try a different clutch just to see if issue changed. If motor is shaking badly something is not in balance. I know these long strokes are known to vibrate, but that means somewhere engineering FUCKED up. Dealer techs are going to go by the book as for spec. if the engineering sheets are wrong they will never be able to fix it. You may have to take the rotating assembly to a engine machine shop and have them balance the rotating assembly correctly.

To the original poster: the 700 and 900 engines of 2005 and 2006 are notorious for heavy vibrations due to the long stroke of the motor and the way it is mounted. If yours is worse than other 700/900 RMK's then your primary clutch is most likely out of balance.

First off, CFI sleds don't have carbs. They have throttle bodies that can NOT be adjusted like carbs. There are several areas to check, first is the throttle cable. The throttle cables on these sleds are also bad, one segment goes from the handlebar to the TB's and a separate one goes from the TB's to the oil pump. The second segment usually breaks causing the pump to stick either all the way open or off. Obviously off would cause a burn down and open would cause a very rich condition. Next is to check the intake boots for cracks and get the injectors tested.
