Question about Polaris ATV
If you havint changed the oil when needed or used the wrong oil, then the problum is the cam lobe is gone!! this happened to me.
The two exhaust valves share one lobe on the cam, its common for that lobe to ware down to the point that its not opening the valves,
My lobe was rounded off!!
you have to take off the gas tank, up by the sparkplug is the valve cover take that off and try to start,, if you dont see the valves on bottom moving then its the cam,
new cam = $250
if you do it your self make sure to tie the cam gear to the frame so the timing chain dont skip a touth,
if you find out that it is the cam and need some more tips e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
