'90 Prowler - Engine bogs down

Check your Plug wires and make sure there not grounding out on
anything. I had a very similiar problem with my Arctic Cat. There was
a metal strap on the c.d.i . meant to secure the wires from moving.
But the strap wore through the insulation and was grounding out the
leads causing an excessive bog in the sled. But the sled would still
idle correctly, even with the screwed up leads.

I have a '90 Prowler that seemed to be running fine the first few times out
this year.  The last time I was out, I drove about 10 miles and stopped the
engine.  When I went to start out again, it started fine and idled, but when I
hit the throttle it bogged down real bad.  It will run if I ease into the
throttle, but if I try to gun it, it still bogs.  It has continued to do this
the last 2 times out.

I suspect it is in the carbs, but someone thought it could be the clutch
*** up.  It doesn't seem to generate enough RPM's to engage the clutch
though.

Any thoughts?

I've seen something similar when the chokes were sticking in the
carbs.  You may want to clean the carbs and check them out.

I wouldn't overlook the clutches, I had an SRV that acted like this and
it was the clutch. If it doesn't shift back it's like trying to take off
in your car if the *** was in 4th gear.  Next time it happens open the
hood and see if the belt is parked where it should be.

First check the compression whenever an engine (liquid cooled cat
nikasil plated cylinders) problem occurs if the compression is ok
proceed to checking for proper spark, then check for proper fuel
after the fuel filter. If you do all these things first it can save
you a headache after. Then proceed to carbs, clutches etc.

To whoever has the '90 Prowler bog, try installing a yellow/green for the
stock red spring in the secondary clutch.  This will increase the RPM's to
get you past the bog.  It worked on my '91 Prowler.
