Question 2007 Poo 'service engine indicator' flashing again

When I first picked up the sled with 340 miles on it the service engine started flashing after awhile I think about the 500 mile mark....so I reset it and haven't seen it again until I put about 2000 miles more on it.

I finally replaced the original plugs today with 2500 miles on them. It runs better now. Personally I would expect them to look almost identical. Although they are real close to the same color the one on the clutch side has some carbon deposits, and the exhaust side looks a little richer. Is my shit out of adjustment or something? I would be adjusting the carbs if it had them.

....on a side note it's acting as if I got some shit gas last night when I filled up. Runs fine but occasionally slightly bogs out for a second. I hope it's bad gas I'm going to go get 5 gallons from the other gas station.

help me please because I do not want to go pay money to have it hooked up to a computer thingy

So I guess the question is can I just reset that indicator again or is something actually wrong.

Just a 1 year warranty I think. It had several (4-5) updates before I purchased it. It has run excellent until this last tank of gas I got Friday night. I ran 4.5 gallons out and topped off with some 93 octane that I got elsewhere in a can and I think it is getting better. If I had some watery gas it would run fine except when it sucks in some water for a couple seconds...right?

Thoughts on the subject anyone? What would you do?

I think I should run all that gas out today and make sure it clears up completely. then I'd feel better about reseting the service engine indicator.

What about my plugs not being perfectly even looking after 2500 miles....is this normal or is there some sort of adjustment that can be made?

Put some Seafoam in it.

I downloaded an owners manual and it tells me all about the service engine reminder and how to set it up and reset it. It is based on the # of engine hours.
It can be set to a maximum of 250 hours or disabled completely if I want.ride on..............sounds like I should try some Sea Foam. Thanks OCR.

EDIT: geez I need to replace the fuel and oil filters and lubricate a bunch of things, too.

todays gas is all bad gas from an engine stand point. the thing with 93 octane gas is it sits in the ground all summer because noone uses it, it gets loaded with water from condesation.

its a good idea in every sled to run a little gas additive for octane and improved burnability.

Well...whatever was wrong with the sled or the gas has cleared right up since I added a can of Sea Foam to the gas tank.

The bad gas I got was 87 octane. It says on the gas cap to use 87 but in the owners manual to use at least 91. It's full of 93 octane now and will likely stay that way unless it's better or cheaper to put additives in your gas all the time.

I'm ghetto-cheap with oil ($8 a gallon super-tech) but I run Premium in EVERYTHING - the XLT, XCR, XCSP, TXL-Indy, etc. I never chance it. That 87 starts life as 87 but after 1 month after it was refined (NOT put in the ground) you're down to 86.... and the longer it sits the worse it gets.
