    Polaris slt 700, no power while turning

    Need help figuring this out,
    Iíve been running it for a few weeks with no issues.
    Now when turning while accelerating from idling the ski will not shift to the high ports (rev up).
    If I accelerate while going straight there seems to be no issue, and once Iím at the higher RPMs I donít have an issue with power during turns, Iím thinking itís a carb issues but Iíd like to see what anyone else has to say.
    -New engine
    -new gaskets
    -Rebuilt carbs

    Welcome.

    How much run time do you have on the new engine?

    Have you been able to check piston wash for possible lean burn condition?

    Carb rebuild - did you use genuine Keihin rebuilt parts or aftermarket?
    Did you check the carb config - pop-off pressure, arm height?

    Did you refresh the fuel system between fuel tank and carburetor?

    Is it possible the throttle cable is binding when you turn?
    Does the engine power lag when turning left and right?

    Engine has about 15hrs on it

    Piston wash and plugs look perfect.

    I don't know about the carb kit I bought it when I bought the engine (SBT).
    going to recheck pop-off pressure as I may have done that incorrectly based on another post I read

    fuel system was completed cleaned (incl tank) and new hoses..

    throttle cable is good.

    and yes it happens on both left and right turns.
