Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

You said no power, what does that mean, whn you turn the key theres nothing or do you mean there is no power meaning acceleration, I think you mean no power IE, nuthin, so with that you need to make sure cables are tight, turn on the switch thatpowers the unit, turn gas on, plug wire tight, if that isn't working check your wire to the starter and or get a new ignition for it its dead or while still installed on the unit get a volt meter and check the ignition with it, there ya go.

Hi there
I am sure the CDI unit is blown, and also have the voltage regulator (charge circuit) checked before you replace the CDI unit, as this is usually the cause (current surge) of a blown CDI, or when removing the battery terminal when the motor is running.
Regards
Phillip

SOURCE: It turns over, new battery. It's getting gas to the carb but won't start. Side note, when I spray starter fluid into the airway to the carb and cover the airway so it can **** in some of it then I let

When you cover the intake on the carb you are causing the engine vacuum to draw too much gas take the carb off and check the float and the jets,

SOURCE: had new key made on an 04 polaris 700 now it trys

it sounds like your starter solenoid is stuck. Locate the solenoid and check for continuity between the positive and negative poles right on top of it. If there is continuity between the poles in the off position, your solenoid is stuck and probably needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: I have,a polaris trailblazer 250. I had to pull start it because it seemed the battery was bad. Bought and installed a new battery and,still won't start. Any ideas....

If it will not spin over, check for battery voltage to the starter.If there is 12 volt to the battery connection on the starter while the start button is being pressed then the starter has gone bad. If there is not any voltage to the starter while pressing the start button, check for blown fuses and the starter solenoid,usually under the seat near the battery, and starter relay,also near the battery.

SOURCE: how do you put a Polaris Predator 500 in reverse

1. Place the transmission in first gear

2. Rotate the lockout switch forward to unlock reverse gear

3. Shift into reverse gear

When you shift back out of reverse gear, the lockout switch will reengage automatically to prevent accidental shifting into reverse

Nothing when turn key. Bought new battery and fully charged, installed, still nothing.


Hello,
The "ticking" you hear is probably the solenoid trying to "connect"
The solenoid is the round thing that is the first thing the large red cable from the battery runs to. There are more wires connected to the solenoid..the TWO big ones carry the power from the battery and then jump it to the BIG cable that goes directly to the starter. You can CAREFULLY "jump" the two big connectors ON the solenoid with a screwdriver ( CAREFUL - SPARKS WILL FLY!). If the motor turns over you have a bad solenoid. Key does not have to be on, you just want the motor to turn over. NO open fuel sources!! SPARKS WILL FLY WHEN YOU JUMP.
Try this and repost, let me know.

I can't get my Polaris Sportsman 90 to run


Hey Chris,

I need more technical info.

Did you line up ALL the timing/valve/cam/piston location marks when you assembled the engine?? A new head..?? - new valves, cam. ..?? Piston installed in the correct direction, Does the carb float bowl have gas in it..? (the drain screw is in the very bottom- loosen it and gas should flow out freely. What do you mean by "kick over".. does it have a kick starter? ..or will the motor not turn over with the kick starter? Please tell me more. Thanks
