Stop trying to force it to turnover!!!!!

Will it attempt to turn over or is locked solid? What happened to make it not turn over??.. how did this start?/.. was it all of a sudden or did you hear something break..??

Two things.. one is part breakage - you would have probably heard it and the MOST likely-- is hydraulic lock.

WARNING - DO NOT USE THE ELECTRIC STARTER!!

  • A FIRE AND EXPLOSION WILL RESULT!!!

1. Remove the spark plug...then slowly try turning it over BY HAND ... if gas blows everywhere it was hydraulic lock..( the entire crankcase is FULL of gasoline and not allowing anything to move - this is dangerous - be careful - you can EASILY damage or break parts/pieces.
You have an issue with the carb needle/seat not stopping the flow of gas into the carb and it leaks into the crankcase..(seen this toooo often).. also seen people break parts and even BEND A ROD trying to pull it off with another vehicle!!
Remove the carb... remove the exhaust pipe.. remove the reed valve assy. .. this will allow the excess fluid to evaporate..CAREFULLY use air to blow through the engine...

2. Get the needle and seat in the carb replaced...
,,that should fix the issue
3. Make sure the petcock is stopping the flow of fuel to the carb too!

Do this and repost results.

SOURCE: 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.

Hey Shaun,
Since we cannot hear any sounds, its going to be hard to diagnose on here. I would take it to my dealer and ask the service manager to listen and go from there..
