    Try fresh gas. If it still runs rough you may have to re-clean the carbs.

    Just like gcr3903 said, but I would dump a can of sea foam in with a full tank of fresh gas. ;)!

    I agree with the above and throw some new plugs in it doesnt take much to foul those little buggers!

    Wow I was thinking the gas...i did throw a can of seafoam in with this tank...Thanks guys I'll try the plugs and some more seafoam. just so I'm not missing anything when cleaning the carbs how many jets are there? Anyone using a different plug? with the Rx sleds I remember people changing to I think CR10ek?

    There are two jets in each carb that need to be cleaned the main jet and the pilot jet which is the most common for plugging up but on mine this fall coming out of storage all 3 pilot jets were plugged and 1 main jet plugged solid I hope this helps

    Hoss thanks I cleaned the mains and pilots on all three carbs. Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.
    That's all the talk about JETS i can take for today after the NY Jets beat down my Pats today!

    Run that old gas out of it first like was said then you can start to figure out what could be wrong. Thinking you will need to clean the carbs again and new plugs and a fuel filter would all help.
