1995 Arctic Cat EFI idle problem

Post by Stev » Thu, 22 Feb 2007 00:42:03


My spare sled is a 1995 Wildcat Touring 700 EFI.

Today it is hard to start and then it idles way too high. In the past this
sled started easily with one pull regardless of the conditions. The pump
sounds like it is running normally when I turn the key.  This is the first
time I've tried it this year.

Any advice? Can this be as simple as an idle speed adjustment? How is this
done?

Thanks

Agreed.  And not much on the injector cleaner. A mechanic told me a
while back just a few onces, not the whole bottle. Guess more is not
better. Anyone else know of this?

Let us know what you find out, okay?

I would just follow the directions on the bottle, so many ounces per gallon.
Seafoam or Chevron Techron are the best injector cleaners. Seafoam also is a
stabilizer.......
