I was recently riding my SRX when suddenly I experienced a loss of power and a different sound, fuel ratio is good, not sure what it could be, should I buy three new spark plugs and try them? I looked for the blue spark but couldn't see any on any of the plugs, but my sled still starts on first haul, just doesn't sound right, anyone have any advice? Power-valves were recently cleaned.

I'd check the power valves first. then I'd check for a broken spring.

More info would be nice, do you hear the noise at idle or at full rpm?? do you even get full rpm?
Try to describe it a little better.

Spark plugs are cheap, if the weren't replaced this year it wouldnt hurt to throw new ones in.

It's at low and high rpms, even at idle, if your familiar with how a bravo sounds, it's sorta has that deep 4 stroke sound now, happened when I was going about 80 km/h, its as if one of my mufflars just became blocked.

Just a thank-you to those who responded with some great advice, I tried three new plugs, runs like a champ again, what I did wrong on my part was adding oil to my gas when I have oil injection, I was told to do this in case my oil injection gave out so I could salvage the motor, but as it turns out, even just a bit of oil to put colour in my gas will foul my plugs, so, lesson learnt, thanks again!

Pretty common knowledge that a 700 Yami will outlast an 800 Polaris about 5 to 1......see the pattern.

Giving a guy advice on a sled engine that inherently has neither of the problems you listed doesn’t help the guy out. Good advise would start with maybe change the plugs and clean the carbs.........not “ it’s probably a piston or reed problem”.........WTF
