    Does this sound bad? 1998 Polaris SLXH 1050

    Does this sound bad to anyone? I know its just a video, and I didn't capture the best sound, but it sounds like something is wrong. I am not mechanically inclined, but I have access to people who are. I ran this all last summer with no issues, and I winterized it last fall, and it started right up this year. It just sounds a little different than I remember. Are there any checks I can do to make sure this thing is running right? Thanks.

    Just sounds like the idle speed is a little low.

    Sounds like piston slap? But like you said it's hard to tell in the video because of the sound

    Mr. Matrix, It does sound normal when I am pressing the throttle, it was just mostly when it was sitting idle that it sounded like this.

    Does the MFD work? What RPM is it idling at?

    If I remember off the top of my head, it idles around 1600 RPM.
