having problem with 2015 570 efi
Hey, thought I would post this here to see if anyone had any thoughts.
Took out my new to me 2015 Sportsman 570 EFI. It was running great, had my daughter riding her new to us 2014 sportsman 400. We rode with no problems all day. Then on our last ride of the day we went out to check deer stands and i had circled mine and proceeded down a slight incline.
Thats when the atv started sputtering and had a loss of power. i stopped and let it cool down, no idiot lights had come on so i let the fan run without the engine on. After about 10 minutes i tried to crank it again and it started but i had to give it some gas to keep the engine from dying. On the ride back to our deer camp, the 570 was sputtering and seemed to run better if i was to give it more gas, but it gradually lost power until i decided it was best to trailer it.
When i got home i checked a few things, the spark plug seemed to be a little fouled, not sure if it was to the point where i would experience that kind of symptom or not, but i am going to be replacing it as soon as i can get a new one.
I haven't drained the gas yet, but if you think that should be one of my next steps, i will definately do that.
Any thoughts based on that limited description ?
