Its kind of annoying but theres a few choices on the throttle theres the tip of the wire get it with some needle nose pliers and pull it out of its seat and some times theres a c clip inside of it and remove it pull the through and then your good and for the choke it has a screw on cap sort of deal put your choke on half choke and and twist the cap thing and pull the choke through. also if the carb is bad and you want to replace it you can also twist off the top cap of the carb and take the needle off ( to do so you must pull the spring up to releive tension and then you push the needle through and once you do that the rest of it is childs play any more questions ask me ) i assumed this is a fan cooled if liquid there are different types of polaris carbs for the liquids i advice you bring it to the dealership because most new polarises have a trouble code thing and if you mess with it it could set it off and you wont beable to drive or it could cause further problems

Wheeler wont stay running even after it's warmed up. Choking it won't keep it running either. This just started the other day. No issues up to this point.

Remove the play in the throttle by loosening the locking pin on the cable, then pull the cable tight to remove the play and refix the locking nut. Once the play is removed adjust the jet so that its steady at idle.

Cranks,and runs, but when throttle no power only if close choke almost completely

Anytime you have to close the choke to run your getting to much air or not enough fuel. May need fuel filter change or it's sucking air at carburetor gasket.

2008 polaris 500 ho efi keeps cutting out and dying when it is warmed up and going on rough terrain or up hill??

Carburetor could be dirty or fuel filter clogged. Put a container of carburetor cleaner in your gas tank, fill it up, and run at idle for 5 minutes, see if that helps clear up the problem. Carburetor float could be stuck, or choke plate.

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?

If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

We are having a problem with the Polaris 500 - it runs backfires and then have to crank it again. On a cold start we have to choke it, small amount on the throttle and do it several times. It will...

The number 1 problem with ATVs is the carburetor. This could be a mixture problem... too rich will cause backfiring and difficulty starting as the carb needs more air. Try leaning it down a 1/8 turn. The choke is always intended to be used when starting; if you don't need to use the choke, the card is definitely running too rich. If you can't adjust to make it behave properly, then rebuild the carb, It's not difficult.. get a new throttle spring and float too. Ensure you place the keeper clip on the correct groove of the needle valve... where the throttle cable connects. Replace all the jets and gaskets... don;t get them mixed up. One larger jet is the primary jet and the smaller one, is the secondary. Get new screws, if the screws are a bit dog eared. Write down your previous mixture settings and start from there to adjust the mixture for starting and assure a slightly skipped idle. (Don't worry as you add throttle it will run smoothly.)

I have a polaris trailblazer 250 and I had to pull start it a few times. Finally bought a new battery and installed it. Still won't start. Any ideas???

Sounds like the most common ATV problem, carburetor. Since you have to take it apart anyway, get a rebuild kit with new float and throttle spring. Ensure you replace the keeper clip on the needle valve on the same groove for the throttle. Don't mix up the primary and secondary jets, and be careful about bending the float arm... support it without using the float itself as a gripping place as the arm will break off. (Motorcycle shops have a special tool for doing this and can get it very accurate.) Write down the mixture measurements (number of screws turns) so you have a place to start from... use 1/8 screw turns until the engine just skips a little bit when idling... it will smooth out when adding throttle. The choke is intended to be used when starting. Check any fault codes and instrument lights.

Hi I am trying to pull start my 2009 artic cat snopro1000, I put it away running fine. I have spark to the plugs?

Are the plugs wet with gas after you prime the engine and try turning it over a few times? You may not be getting gas to the cylinders if you left gas in the fuel system when you put it away and it has evaporated and left behind gunk that causes the carburetor to stick or the injectors to clog. (I always use Sta-bil or a similar gas storage treatment when putting up a wet engine). Get two bottles of carburetor/injector cleaner. Put one in the gas tank to mix with the gas there. If you have access to the carburetor, pour part of the bottle of cleaner into the carburetor and work the throttle and choke back and forth a few times with the cleaner in place. Gently try moving the choke plate or float to see if they are sticking. Replace the carburetor housing and try cranking the engine several times. Otherwise, you probably need to have a mechanic look at it.

Why does my yamaha 660 only run if the choke is on? What causes it to backfire?

Most of the time it's because the Pilot/Idle jet is clogged in the carburetor. This most often happens because of old fuel sitting in the carburetor during long periods of sitting and non-use. The fuel forms a varnish - a gummy layer inside of your carburetor and clogs the tiny holes in the idle jet. Since fuel can't get through, the engine dies. The hole for the choke is larger, therefore the fuel can still get through it.

It slides out. If the carb is dirty you need to soak it for several days in cleaner
