If kawasaki ever decides to make a snowmobile again the price will triple. At least those I'll have for a lifetime. I got the part number from somewhere on this site. I have read of people putting mid 90's Polaris skids in these with little modification. I'll have to look into that.
More clean burn, less octane fuel, less unburned fuel. And where I call it exhilarating, others flat out call it Mad Kaw disease. Which one do I want?

I'm sure that me being unfamiliar with these motors doesn't help either. I am with Gix, there is little benefit to troubleshooting until the crank seals are changed. Thank you for the part numbers. Locally, I can't get any help even from Kawasaki dealers. No chops or replaced parts.
This sled will go to someone with enough money to store it in their garage or showroom with their other prized pieces and not drive it. My father in law was the second and he didn't really use it. If the diaphragm is bad they can suck fuel into the vacuum pulse line and directly into the crankcase.

It has new fuel lines and new gas and oil. Does any one know where I can get all of these in Canada at a reasonable price? I just get a link to all the seals they sell. The fuel pumps are 30+ years old. Instead of who can go the fastest, now its who can go the farthest lol. No doubt you will find that too.
Choke plunger seals are good and the plungers are seating properly. With hundreds of pages, it will show you how to distinguish any problem from an oil change to a transmission swap and how to fix it on your own. Someone far more experienced than I would know off hand what the Winderosa part numbers are for these seals. I used the closest size I could find, but I think its too small and is contributing to some problems I'm having. Now, with that said, I have purchased individual seals, and if I get out the garage or into my snowmobile folder I might even be able to find them.

The 8 ports instead of 6 allowed for a faster release of burned fuel which made the cycle much quicker. Ordering stuff I don't need seems like a waste of product and money. Even when I ask suppliers, they don't know. You will be able to use the search function to browse the manual and print out your needed pages.
Now I just need to get the 3 crank seals before I test any further. Thanks for taking the time to help. I just checked both Dennis Kirk and Partzilla. Today I ordered a 100 pack of o-rings from McMaster-Carr pn 9464k12.
