It sounds like the carburetor has a sticking float and is letting fuel in after the float bowl is filled.

Polaris 4wd 6x6 magnum. Just replaced the carb with a factory new one. Starts fine , but dies as soon as I touch the throttle.


What was wrong with the old carburetor?? I have been working on motorcycles and ATV's for 40+ years... only replaced 5 carburetors..they were broken/damaged by the owner trying to "fix them" or corrosion damage from leaving gas in them for years...
It still sounds like you have a fuel delivery issue...check all your hoses..
get one of these... it will serve you well ...

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...

Won't start, good battery, lots of spark,good gas, ran one day and not the next.


Hi Sandy:
Hmmmmm.
Something must have happened.
Back to basics.
Pull plugs, check for hot blue spark.
Plugs wet? Fouled?
If dry and spark then no fuel.
Drain/flush carb.
Change fuel filter.
Think of it as entertainment.
Cheers,
Happy New Year.

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.

Having a cold starting problem with 2011 Polaris 550 EPS


As in...? Cold start as in warm weather not being run in a while, or cold weather every time it cools down? Is that fuel injected or carbureted?

I know nothing about this model but it sounds like some kind of safety lock is kicking in. like its not in neutral, brakes not on. whatever it needs to let it start.
