High idle problems / check your intake

I started having high idling and found the throttle body boot was cracked on our '08 Prowler 700h1 XTX. After some reading I would assume that this effects most full size atvs and utvs.

Check your rubber intake boot. If it's cracked don't run your machine or you will suck junk into the engine!!

P/N: 0437-069 to replace. Or a piece of 2" gas tank filler neck hose or radiator hose are some cheaper fixes.

check your rubber intake - ArcticChat.com - Arctic Cat Forum

This seems to be an older problem than most realize! The new style boot is much thicker. Another great point by ArcticFrost! BTW, how is the engine swap going?

Went to the auto parts store and they were able to cut me a piece of 2" fuel line at no charge!

Well, I swapped in the '16 700h1 from an Alterra atv and have 100 miles and about 50 hours so far. I swapped the shift cam and just have to figure out the wiring for the newer style shift position plug.

I put all new bearings in my case over the winter, honed the cylinder and put a new piston in mine. Had to cut the valve reliefs deeper for the New Web Cam. I'm running a 750 big bore kit, and it really woke it up! Also put a new crank in it, so now I'm building another bottom end. Very happy with the 700 transmission gears, I've really beat on them and they looked like new! 10,000 miles on them, and I checked them over and put them back in!

I had thought about doing the 750 BBK but after pricing it out the new engine turned out to be a better deal for me. Would love to do one sometime though! I've also swapped the rear diff on our XTX for smoother riding. How many miles before you did the 750 kit?

I had about 7,000 miles before I went with the kit. I went with the Campbell Enterprises kit. It offers a neat cylinder modification that others don't. They make the deck surface a complete surface around the cylinder. I finally found a source for cylinder head studs that use ARP studs, and hardware. Until this winter I was making my own. The cost for factory head bolts convinced me on this route! I looked at my crank when I pulled it. It does not show any signs of wear! I bought my Prowler used with 366 miles on it! I change oil between 500-750 miles depending on use. If I'm in a lot of dust, I'll change at 300 miles! I always use synthetic and it makes all the difference in the world! My stock cylinder with 7,000 miles on it looked new! Original hone marks visible, and no scratches on the piston or cylinder walls! I swapped out my turf saver last winter, and it was still working when I pulled it! We travel all over the country with the Prowler, so I like to carry extra parts on the road. Also carry a full tank of nitrogen to power my air tools! I was Hatfield McCoys when my fixed plate came loose and no spare parts, and no way to fix it! Never again! I keep buying things on ebay for my builds. My Prowler is a perfect machine for us! The wife and I are both avid riders, and being retired we have plenty of time! I'm an old hot rodder, so my Prowler gets a lot of attention! LOL
