I have a sportsman 450 and for all intent it is a excellent machine with the exception of when I am riding above 8000 feet and lately this is quite often. the carb floods I have re jetted to the next step up in leaner jets but it still floods/bogs down. when I pour the fuel to increase power. like on snow banks or in the mud. ideas?:rockwoot:

You set you re jetted the machine so you should be fine there. The reason for pressure testing the carb is to determine if the needle valve is leaking. If the needle valve is leaking it will over fuel the motor causing a rich condition.
