hi everyone iam new to this site,i purchase a new 700 xtx a week ago.i got 203 miles on it in the last week but yestherday it started stalling when i let of the gas,i have to keep it between 25 and 30 mph to keep it going,if i stop and let it idle sometimes it will stall as soon as i let of the gas and sometime it will stall as soon as i hit the gas .i tryed a new plug with no change,does anyone know what could be the problem.

It sounds like it the EFI throttleposition sensorcould be out of adjustment or something along those lines.

i might have found the problem,between the airbox and the trottlebody there is a hose.there is a crack in it and it is sucking in air when i push on it and make the hole open the engine idles very high when i close the hole so it dont suck any air the engine stalls,i tryed putting a pice of tape over the hole so it wont suck any air but with that done the engine would not start any ideals anyone,i guess back to the dealer is one,because it is a 2010 and only had it 2 weeks:cool:
