1993 Poalris 350 L Gas runs straight threw the carb & won't fire.

I have a 1993 polaris 350L. Ran great but went to start & wouldn't start. Not getting any gas, plenty of spark. What can I do to the carb to stop the gas from running through. Am I missing something?

89 Polaris Ranger500 6x6 side by sideis coughing,spitting and backfireing thew carb.whats the fix


I would start by pulling and cleaning the carb, air filter and spark plug. Usually the cause starts with dirty air filters that gets the carbs dirty which then cause the polaris to run rich and the plug will start to foul. The unburnt fuel ignites at the wrong time and back fires. A less likely problem would be out of timing.

I have a 2016 Polaris sportsman 570 she's got a fuel pump tries starting her she will keep winding over but won't start any help would be nice


Make sure the kill switch is in the run position.

AN engine need three things to run:
Compression
Timed spark
Fuel

now.....
1*. Check the spark plug to make sure it is firing.. remove the spark plug.. make sure you have metal to metal contact and then turn the engine over.. (this might be a two man job).. the spark plug should have a nice big blue white spark,,(some electronic's will have a weak orange and still fire fine!)
2. Make sure you have gas in the tank and (going into the carb/FI)... (have to ask-actually have had 3 bikes in my career come in complaining -won't start...!! Add gas and they ran.. WOW!.. never charged any of them....the embarrassment on their face was payment enough!)
3*. While the spark plug is out... place your finger over the spark plug hole firmly .. keep the spark plug cap away from your hand..turn the engine over and see if it will blow your finger off..(it should blow it off the hole easily).

If any one of these three are not nearly perfect.. you have an issue!!

Check these and repost with the results...

2001 Polaris sportsman 500 will run great for a couple minutes then dies. I let it set for a minute and it fires back up. I have to continue to do this as I am riding and it is very frustrating.


Sounds like the float bowl in the carb is sticking, go get a can called "Sea Foam" from your local parts store add about half the can to a full tank of gas take it for a good ride it will clean out any gunk and deposits in the carb and make it run good again i had the exact problem you are talking about with my wife's Suzuki Eiger 400 i let it sit for 5 months and it caused the carb to get all gummed up i ran Sea Foam in the gas and it runs like brand new again after riding it for about 45 mins.

Polaris ranger 700 efi runs great in neutral bogs down at 20mph


Run some Sea Foam in the gas it will clean the carb sounds like a sticky jet or dirty carb the Sea Foam will clean the carb of any residue or deposits that have built up in the carb over time causing it to malfunction you can get the Sea Foam at most parts stores and its cheap stuff and works awesome.

1988 Polaris 2x4 trailblazer 250cc my question is if it runs for a couple minutes with straight gas did I mess the motor up it's getting fire n gas n it's got compression just will not start


If you ran it with straight Gan you could have trashed the rings lowering the compression enough that it will not start. Do a compression check and see what it has. Make sure you have a 32:1 or 40:1 mix if you are not using the injection system or if it is not working. Quality oil too. Don't do the compression check without normal premix in there. You need at least 110 lbs to run on the low side although I have seen some run at 105.

I have a 2003 polaris/330 trail boss with a fuel problem. i had carb rebuilt at a shop .cleaned, new needle & seat installed. new plug, carb vent/ equalizer cleaned, tank vent clean. starts fine, runs...


there's a vent on the carb they might've have missed, the line could be clogged. insects and mud get in them. plus it could be the petcock on the tank. take it out and make sure the screens, are cleaned etc.
