Question about Polaris ATV

1 Answer

2010 Sportsman 500 HO

Stalled out on me twice while riding, first time going down a rough trail in low and slow. Gave it gas, no response, gave it again and stalled. After an hour and a half and many attempts to start, started like nothing happened. Next ride just started going uphill in high and stalled out the same way. Needed a tow home and was finally able to start it with the choke pulled all the way out and giving it gas so I could push in the choke. Runs fine now, but don't trust to ride and shop can't figure out what's wrong. Any ideas?

Have seen this happen to my honda, water gets ingested in the carb when in deep water and settles in the bottom of the fuel bowl. you must remove the fuel bowl drain cap to drain out water

SOURCE: Idling good start good but stalls if pressing throtle

there is a piece of debris floating around in the sediment bowl of your carburetor, its lodged in the high speed jet causing it to stumble and backfire......it will most likely need a carb rebuild average repair cost on this machine is around 150 dollars at a reputable polaris dealer

SOURCE: Polaris 500, starts fine but when you give it gas is stalls

check the exhaust lobe on the cam. these are prone to wear if oil changes are neglected. try to run it with the airbox lid removed and see if there is any change.

SOURCE: 2004 polaris sportsman 700, shuts off while riding.

I have a 2004 700 carb that shut off while riding and then would start up 3-5 minutes later after many nights working on it Ifinally figured it out no help from any dealer. There are 2 circuit breakers under the front rack mine were very rusted, Replaced both never had the problem again. My situation was always only when the lights were on.
Hope this helps

Here is your manual. Spark Plug page 93. Page 123 says
Spark Plug / Gap NGK BKR6E / .035 in. (0.9 mm)

Different plug (E rather than ES) and gap. check the plug that came out.

Smokes and has a low end rattle


Rebuild it before you do more damage! If you keep riding it the cost of the rebuild will be more than the machine is worth!

Why does the engine load up at higher rpms?


you might have a dirty carb.check the big jet in there as it might have a blockage.sounds like you have enough gas going through the small jet to start the quad and for slow speed but when you want to give it good power, it starts to bog down.do the carb thing first
