How is the oil? Did it seize or just stop igniting? All engines have little oil pumps of some nature. If it seized, no oil circulation.
Check, plug and feel compression. Change plug...if you got oil in during assembly, maybe fouled plug.

Was it literly a minute that it ran or was it like 10-15 minutes with you reving it up a bit? It could be many different things from as simple as it ran out of the gas that was in the carb and the tank valve is shut off to things like your magneto coil is shorted, no spark. Have you checked for spark and fuel? Does the engine have compression? More details will help solve your problem.

SOURCE: polaris will not run

Seriously, guydaigle? The 300 Xpress is a two stroke. The problem is too much fuel. Start by checking and adjusting the carb. Look at the needle & seat, then the float level.

SOURCE: 1990 polaris trailboss , trans ,or clutch slips in water

Check for wore clutch belt and also check to see if your getting water in the clutch housing. If your getting water in the housing, your clutches could be corroded as well. There should be no water getting in that shroud.

93 polaris trailboss 350l 4x4 new piston and rings ....no suction at carb


This is not enough info to start. ..Hold the palm of your hand over the back of the carb and make sure its sealed against it... You need a helper to do this properly. The engine should pull on your hand inwards... if not....??
Did a shop or factory trained mechanic do the work? Are the reed valves able to open and stay closed? What does the compression gauge read? If you don't have one, beg borrow, buy, and/or take it to a shop and pay them to check it. Check it with the throttle wide open... with new piston and rings it should pump over 120+psi. ..easily.
Have the compression checked and then repost with the results.
Thanks!

How do you disassemble this? Needing to check to see if spring is broke! Its for a Polaris trailboss 250 1993 model


Here's a link for parts info
https://www.google.ca/#q=polaris+trail+boss+250+pull+start
Being the mechanical sort that I am I would start by removing it from the machine and then try to determine how to dis-mantle it.
Some of these were rivetted together so may require some creative technical abilities to re-build.
Checking with the nearest dealer is always a good option.

Engine wont start on my polaris big boss 500 6x6 after the piston and rings was replaced


First - Did you find ALL the pieces of the broken piston...if not...STOP and FIND them.. they are in the bottom of the crankcase...you engine WILL NOT live long if you have not gotten ALL the pieces--even the TINIEST ones out!! You mat have more damage than just a broken piston.. something caused it to break.. you may have cracked the crankcases...may have damaged the main bearing(YES) and/or damaged the crank bearing.. see if gas in leaking into the transmission oil.
There is an arrow on the piston that faces toward the EXHAUST port. If there are hole(s) in the piston, they go towards the INTAKE.
Do some more searching and repost the results for review!

I have a 2003 polaris trailblazer 400. the oiler stopped working and fouled up my piston. I got it rebored and new piston. after that job was done i tried to start it. would not start. found that i had no...


fyi, something to watch out for on those is bad crank seals. will allow a lot of air in and cause the engine self destruct. before the cdi try simpler things like coil and making sure all the wiring is right. good pickup coil.
