Question about Polaris ATV

1 Answer

I have a 1996 polaris 400 xpress. had it rebuilt. when i got it back, the only way it would run good was to press the override button. instead of holding the button all the time, i screwed a small screw beside the button to hold it in. the last time i rode it, it just stoped. the only time i can get a spark now is when i let off the starter button and it will only fire 1 spark. i replace the ignition coil and the cdi box. could it be the stator or could it be a problem with the override button?

if thats the 2 stroke (pretty sure it is) you have to watch the crank seals on those. cause running probs and eventually destroy the motor.

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.

2008 polaris 800 sportsman touring wont engage in 4x4 high without holding in the override button


try this first right beside the reverse button u will see 2 sets of wires clipped into the control be careful and pull these 2 apart u will see they will be all corroded up clean them up and dielectric them see if that works its a easy fix maybe

if that doesnt work try this...

I replaced the speed sensor, got my speedo operation back, no more intermittent 4x4 issues, and no more stalling in reverse! It's actually quite annoying how many things are tied into that one sensor. Makes for a frustrating trip out of the bush if it starts acting up on the trail (like mine did). Good luck with your repairs!
