I can't help you as i dont use stabilizer , but i am sure someone else will .

I moved the cables to the left (out of the opening) and covered them with clear vinyl tubing to protect them from the Scott's. That helped a lot, then I bought a G2 throttle tube and it is much smoother. There is still a pull, but I can't help but think part of that is vacuum on the venturi / slide.

I have an aftermarket tank, although I don't know the brand. I'll do a pic this weekend.
thanks,

I'll poke around with it this weekend and see what i can come up with.

I need to buy a shop manual and was wondering if the factory Honda manual is better than the Clymer.

Anyone with both?

Can't say I've seen the Clymer for the BRP, but all of my previous uses of Clymer pale in comparison to factory manuals. And Honda manuals have been some of the best I've ever seen from any factory.

Get a factory manual, you won't be sorry. Or find a download for the .pdf.

Yeah, I just recently downloaded the pdf. If you can't find it, send me a pm with your email, and I'll get it to you.

So I got the replacement thermostat from NAPA and went to pull the old one out to see if it was stuck open. Turns out the previous owner must have read the same thing I did about not having to run it with the thermostat, because there wasn't anything there.

Hopefully that's all that's wrong with it, I'll find out tomorrow when I warm it up to change the oil and then really take it out and see how it's doing.

I use both. The Honda manual goes in depth into things the Clymer doesn't.

What? I haven't heard of that before. No, I didn't drill anything.

Hmm, maybe I should have read a bit more carefully. Now I get to drain the coolant again to drill the hole.

muffler

Anyone buy an aftermarket muffler recently? Mine came with an old Big gun one that does not have a sparky and loves to blow out packing and is way too loud.

I think I would go OEM but can't seem to find one.

If you don't find one here, check ebay. They always seem to be a few on there.
