Okay, I have a 99 Arctic cat 250cc 2x4. I bought it knowing it had problems, it burned oil all the time when I drove it. I had it taken in to a professional who fixed it, bored it out whatever needed done to it. That was back in Sept, it was running fine until I noticed it was leaking oil. So, we fixed the line that was cut and it was fine. Just recently it wouldn't start, and when I finally got it going but it sounded aweful, would bog down, and would shut off whenever I slowed down. Now it won't start at all. I've noticed that it also smokes when I first start it up but then will quit once I've run it for a bit. The spark plug gets dirty so fast, I thought the guy had fixed all that. I want to know is this a fixable problem or will it keep coming back and will I just be wasting my money. I really like the bike, the lights work, the reverse it good, it shifts good, the body's nice, and it ran well when it was working. It's big and sturdy, and whenever I hit something or run over a a tree limb it doesn't feel like I'm going to fly over the handle bars. I'm willing to put more money into it, as long as it's going to fix the problem once and for all. If any of you have and ideas or advice I'd appreciate it, thanks
