Idling Issue with Sportsman 600

I have an idling issue with my sportsman. It runs fine, however when i come to a stop it dies. It will fire right back up if I give it a little gas. I adjusted the idle and that did not solve the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Pull the air filter and see if it does the same thing. I have dust clogged it and it does exactly what yours symptoms are

SOURCE: engine on my 04 sportsman 400 wo'nt idle unlesss

there is an electronic position sensor in the throttle housing and if the throttle cable sticks even a little the sensor interrupts the flow of electricity and disables the engine to prevent loss of control so chase down your cable and lubricate it and make sure you have full range of movement

My opinion, it's running rich and letting it idle for 5 minutes doesn't help. Whether it's carbed or EFI, when the machine is cold, it needs more fuel. As engine temperature increases, it doesn't need as much fuel, and the carbon that started building up on the plug is burned back off. When a machine isn't ran for very long, carbon deposits continue to build on the plug. The carb itself may need to be rejetted/adjusted, it it's running rich,

I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 when it gets hot it cuts off and back fires


Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.

Where is compression release for polaris sportsman 4x4 atv


Polaris uses an automatic decompression that sits in the exhaust cam. There is not an external lever as there is on older Kawasaki's and dirtbikes. What seems to be the issue as to why you're looking for a compression release?
