I have a 2012 1000 that has sat idle for near three years. I’ve bought it new and have near 1500 miles on it. Decided to get it moving again! So I have installed a new battery and changed fluids. But it seems to be super doggy. When in high on the road I might top out at 45mph and was getting the codes for speed sensor and harness which would clear at lower speeds... I don’t think the belt is slipping due to the revs not even getting that high. Any advice would be appreciated!

I have opened the clutch cover and is clean.
I think I am going to put it in neutral with the cover off and give it some revs and make sure the clutches are operating.
thanks for the idea!

you didnt address the fuel. Must be completely drained and IMO use about 2 gallons of fuel with a very good fuel system cleaner like seafoam. It will smoke like hell but will clean all that gunk up for sure. After you go through the 2 gallons, go ahead and replace spark plugs since they are cheap. Welcome back.

the fuel was near or empty and I put fresh in. (Couldn’t hear any sloshing when rocked) But I will drain and replace fuel filter. And put seafoamed fuel back in. Thanks

Pull the speed sensor itself and check for shavings on it , re-install plug with die - electric silicone..

might not be the cause but sounds like a new air filter is in order as well...and clean out the body...

I'm with Sand-n-Sea. Three years will build up a lot of varnish in the fuel system.

For varnish removal, I would probably stick with something designed solely for use in the fuel system, like Chevron Techron.
