After 350 miles I have noticed the one piece carb boot tends to fall off the carbs when your getting really crazy in the rough stuff, now I like the rough and it's getting old putting them back on and not to mention if powder snow was getting in the carbs... :wacko:

NO, in fact, I just wanted to get some miles on for things like this to go wrong before I did any of that.

To make a longer story short, the dealership who setup the sled removed the carbs to change main jets and e-clip position, never placed the carbs into the air intake mainifold properly, when I was putting the boot on the left side (sitting) air box and the carbs popped off.
It takes some time to get them in the air intake manifolds and make them secure - YOU MUST PUSH THEM INTO THE AIR INTAKE MANIFOLD UNTIL THEY WONT GO ANY FARTHER, WHILE HOLDING THEM IN TIGHTEN THE SCREWS ON THE CLAMPS.
note! that if not in all the way they will popp out - my 900 M/C like all other sleds I have work on have a ridge in the mainfold to hold the carbs, I don't know if these do or is the air intake manifold to short ?
It is a problem that could cause engine damage.
