  2. I use a regular auto GPS, currently using a Nuvi 52LM on a Ram mount with VVMapping maps. The downside is that it's not waterproof but I put a plastic bag over it when there's any chance for it to get wet. The topographic information is not as good as a purpose-built off-road unit like the Montana. But the screen is more readable and best of all, they're cheap. I got the one I'm currently using for $35 on eBay. If it dies, I'll buy another one. I can buy a whole bunch of them for the $600 it would cost to get a new Montana. I'm planning to use it on the snowmobile this winter, it'll be interes
  3. A friend of mine has a Sportsman 500, its a really nice machine. Its huge compared to my KQ, but the extra power is probably worth the trade-off in size. Sounds like your vacuum fuel petcock is bad. You can convert to a manual, you can get them on eBay for $20 or so. You just have to remember to shut the fuel off when you park and turn it back on when you want to ride. I didnt notice you started this thread in July. I was a little late to the party.
  4. Three turns out is a little rich, at least according to the manual. The stock setting is a little less than 3, 2 3/4 or 2 7/8. Three should not cause serious flooding problems though, I wouldnt think. I would check the choke and make sure you dont have fuel coming down the carb vent lines from the fuel petcock.
