I got a polaris pro x 2001-2002 440, its a racing sled, but we dont race it anymore.

Whenever we get to 6,000 rpms it always bogs down and it wont go anyfaster, I mean sometimes it will luckily make it past and just start haulin, but most the time it bogs down, same as when we try to take off fast. We tried changing the plugs, new belt, greased some stuff with the clutch, and my brother in law adjusted the tension in the clutch or something. But we just cant seem to get it to work right, any suggestions?

Alright, I just called my brother in law who previously owned the sled he had similar problems, he said when he had it he cleaned the carb and took it apart several times changing jets and stuff. Eventually he took it to someguy who fixed it, the guy never told him what he did to it... anyways we still have the problem... we will be working on it tonight so any other suggestions?

take the belt of ease on the gas so it doesn't hammer the clutches together and then see if you can get it over 6 grand

but if its also not stock clutching then it will cause a bog down and it might not be able to over come then ramps
