I have a 1999 Polaris Diesel 4x4. It will run for about 5 to 10 minutes and quit. After a brief respite, you can fire it back up and again it will run 5 to 10 minutes and just quit. We use this extensively on the farm and need some ideas as to the problem.

I would say you may either have water in your fuel or a filter that should be replaced, or even a blocked air filter.
Please let me know what you find

    i have this problem with my honda quad I have found that the breather from the fuel tank is blocked so I just unscrew the filler cap to allow the air in, It seems to work fine after i have done this.

2001 Polaris sportsman 500 will run great for a couple minutes then dies. I let it set for a minute and it fires back up. I have to continue to do this as I am riding and it is very frustrating.


Sounds like the float bowl in the carb is sticking, go get a can called "Sea Foam" from your local parts store add about half the can to a full tank of gas take it for a good ride it will clean out any gunk and deposits in the carb and make it run good again i had the exact problem you are talking about with my wife's Suzuki Eiger 400 i let it sit for 5 months and it caused the carb to get all gummed up i ran Sea Foam in the gas and it runs like brand new again after riding it for about 45 mins.

I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 when it gets hot it cuts off and back fires


Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.
