I have a similar sled - an '89 E***r.  Tell me more about the "bogging
down".
On mine, it idles fine, and it's great when it first starts up, and higher
than
4,000 rpm.  BUT, after warmed up, and between idle and  4k rpm it
bogs so bad that I have to shut it off and sit for a few minutes.  I thought
it was
a carb problem but I checked the plugs and they are a bit dark but not too
bad.

So I'm wondering if it isn't the carbs after all....perhaps the clutch?  I
don't know
a thing about clutches.  How can I check it out?

Does your machine act similar?

Thanks!
