Polaris Sportsman 90 it bogs down/stalls. new carb. it will rev up in neutral. however when you put it in gear bike will only run for a few minutes and then stall or quit running. will restart .


Check the Flywheel key. It should be locked under the pull cord, where the stator is located. I will be a small piece of metal that slides into the spline from the engine and the stator. If it is worn the stator will rotate off the spline and the timing will be off, she won't start and if she does will be really rough and backfire, sputter and have power loss.

My 2007 polaris 450 sportsman used to start with the pull start 2nd pull,now it starts for a couple seconds and stalls ,does this three or 4 x then starts and runs fine,by the way it won't start with...


Could be time to replace battery, this is most likely the culprit. These fourwheelers are very picky when it comes to low power. Your starter is also most likely just fine, the clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter, so your battery has some juice, but not enough amps to turn over the starter. Also If the fourwheeler has sat for a long time then you may just need to charge the battery. The 2007 is most likely fuel inject which uses even more fuel when running and it also has its own computer kind of like a PCM in a car or truck. These all need a good supply of power and the stator which is like an alternator usually needs the help of a fully charged battery to keep everything running properly. Also note, once you get a new battery or charge it in some cases the ATV should run smoother.

2008 polaris 800 sportsman touring wont engage in 4x4 high without holding in the override button


try this first right beside the reverse button u will see 2 sets of wires clipped into the control be careful and pull these 2 apart u will see they will be all corroded up clean them up and dielectric them see if that works its a easy fix maybe

if that doesnt work try this...

I replaced the speed sensor, got my speedo operation back, no more intermittent 4x4 issues, and no more stalling in reverse! It's actually quite annoying how many things are tied into that one sensor. Makes for a frustrating trip out of the bush if it starts acting up on the trail (like mine did). Good luck with your repairs!

No spark untill start button is realeased


try cleaning with a electrical cleaner such as CRC sells at most auto stores. Spray the start switch and then the kill button if you have one. I just had the same problem and I had to disassemble the switch and spray it and it now works fine. You may only to to spray into the key hole area where you insert the key and then work the key back and forth to spread the cleaning soultion. the cleaner dries very quickly so spray insert key and turn several times. do not forget the kill switch clean that also...

My 2008 polaris 400 cut out when drivind through water


Sounds like something electrical is getting wet. in your shop , or driveway , start quad and run up till it's warm. Then take a spray bottle and spray all electrical connections starting from the bottom and work your way to the top. theres lots of connections on these quads. It's going to take some tome unless you get it to duplicate what it does on the trail. When you find the culprit use Dielectric silicone to water proof the connectors . Good luck . thats about the only way to go about this reapair , it takes patiance and time

2008 polaris sportsman 500 won't start, but relay clicks and will start when relay terminals are jumped


I have seen this on a few machines. Start tracing wires. Ground wire from the key is the first on Id check. Grounds on these machines go bad from vibration and rough terrain. Not to mention silt in the water.
