2008 polaris 500 ho efi keeps cutting out and dying when it is warmed up and going on rough terrain or up hill??


Carburetor could be dirty or fuel filter clogged. Put a container of carburetor cleaner in your gas tank, fill it up, and run at idle for 5 minutes, see if that helps clear up the problem. Carburetor float could be stuck, or choke plate.

Why does my Yamaha grizzly 700 engine brake fail going down hill


If you're in to low a gear, the clutch might be slipping under stress from high revs. You might need a new clutch or stronger springs. Try using a higher gear and use 50% braking.

Could be a problem with a bad float that is overloading the engine with fuel. Does it take a little bit to "clear its throat" once you are on flat ground again?

This description does sound like a battery that is running to flat or not charging enough to crank the machine, Assuming the down hill roll is a "clutch start". If you handy with a multi meter, just check the voltage on the battery, if it is not a maintenance free battery it might just need a top up. If it is still the original battery, you might just get away a couple of months or another year by reconditioning it.It might also have the charging cables being loose or worn depending on the use it has. Best wishes and good luck with the repair
