I got to run my 2004 Skandic 600 SUV WT a several weeks ago and let it sit. I work out of town so I don't start them all the time. About 3 weeks went by and I was able to get back home, I attempted to start it in -11 deg F and the battery slowly was dying, so I ended up letting it sit again. I went back to work for a cpl weeks and I'm back here. I towed it into the heated garage and pulled the pluds and they were badly fouled and wet. I went the the SkiDoo shop and bought 4 (2 spares). I read in my manual that the gap for the plugs should be gapped at .45, but I also read to not adjust plugs, I'm assuming from the .45 setting? I pulled the plugs out of my Skandic and they were no where even clode to .45, more like .15, not much gap at all. I cranked the starter and manually pulled started with the plugs out to get any excess fuel out as per the book, I put my new gapped plugs in and no joy, no choke and nothing, choke and nothing, pulled and nothing, electric start and nothing. I'm wondering if the plugs were factory set, they looked really clode to the same gap as my other ones I pulled, bu tthe book stated .45? Anyway she's not firing up....
One more thing, I've had the machine for a yr and a half with no issues, other than she idles really low and dies if I don't give her alittle has to keep the idle up, headlights are barely visible while at idle until I give it some throttle, how can I adjust the throttle to idle a little higher?
Any suggestions on either?
