I have been having a couple problems with my 99 z 440 sno pro. The first one is it has like nothing out of the whole now, it sits there and bogs for like 2 sec and then it will finally get like revved up and it will go, the second problem is wen im starting it or riding it i will let off the throttle on low rpm and its like it hits the kill switch or sumthing. can anyone help me out? thanks.

Well, it is a race sled, when was the last time the engine had a good rebuild and cleaning??? Did you have a "brain box" reprogrammed to run on pump gas??? I would say it just needs a good cleaning and rebuild of the engine. It is a race sled, even if you trail it, you will need to rebuild/clean the engine every 500-750 miles or so for it to run good and keep running good, no matter of the brand.

Hope this helps.
