I am Brand new to the forum. But I recently just bought a used 2005 sportsman 500 HO. and I want to really go through it and make sure everything is okay. It is bogging out when you hit the throttle, so i am going to do a fuel system clean, and clean the carb. Any other ideas of what i should do to make sure everything is okay.

Oil, trans and hub/diff fluids. Also go throught and greas anything that has a grease zerk.not a bad idea to check or replace your spark plug, air filtrr and brake pads.

Depends on what the root cause of the bog is. Good chance it will help, can try some seafoam or b12 chem tool in the gas to help clean it up. Has it been sitting for a while? Make sure to change the fuel filter when you clean everything else.

That's good!

When you clean the carb check the diaphragm for any cracks or holes, CV carbs are great when they work but can be a royal pain when they are dirty.
