SOURCE: How do I remove carburetor on 2005 Polaris Sportsman 700 Twin?

its kind of annoying but theres a few choices on the throttle theres the tip of the wire get it with some needle nose pliers and pull it out of its seat and some times theres a c clip inside of it and remove it pull the through and then your good and for the choke it has a screw on cap sort of deal put your choke on half choke and and twist the cap thing and pull the choke through. also if the carb is bad and you want to replace it you can also twist off the top cap of the carb and take the needle off ( to do so you must pull the spring up to releive tension and then you push the needle through and once you do that the rest of it is childs play any more questions ask me ) i assumed this is a fan cooled if liquid there are different types of polaris carbs for the liquids i advice you bring it to the dealership because most new polarises have a trouble code thing and if you mess with it it could set it off and you wont beable to drive or it could cause further problems

99 Polaris 300 xplorer will start off pull rope , but just click off push button


If battery has good charge on it, I would suspect either starter selonoid or starter itself. With it in neutral and key on, try taking a jumper wire from hot side of battery directly to starter. if starter turns over I would replace selonoid.

04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas


Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

I picked up a 1995 sl 750 Polaris jet ski charged up a new battery but when I push the start button nothing happens


Try using a jumper from the battery directly to the starter, bypassing the switch. You may have a bad starter switch.
