    Sounds like it's starving for fuel...but why? fuel pump issue or dirty carbs messing with pop off pressure?

    Had the same issues with mine,replaced lines,had carbs redone, went through everything, bottom line......
    save your self time and money and get the update kit.
    seems polaris had a lot of problems with the 96-97, 900 & 1050 stator/cdi and you can find plenty of guys here with the same problems/symtoms if you search the threads. if you want to check the stator and cdi look in the tech section on how to test it. anyways thats my 2 cents, i got a lot of great advice here and now my ski runs great!
