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?

1995 [POLARIS 400 SPORTSMAN. carb has been cleaned AND REBUILT. STARTS AND RUNS GOOD LOW SPEEDS. DRIVES UP TO ABOUT HAlf throttle and cuts out. will restart and run the same again


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.

I have a 1996 400 liter Polaris 6x6 Big Boss w/ no manual. I presume the oil tank is set up to provide the proper mix ratio. How can you tell if it's malfunctioning/ What is the manufacturer's recomme


you can pull the oil tube off the carb for a couple seconds while its running to see if it drips oil. I'd run a synthetic 2 stroke oil, lubes better and burns cleaner.

1996 Polaris Sportsman 400 Will Not Start


If your atv has been sitting this long, the carb is probably stopped up internally... take the carb to a qualified professional and have it cleaned and set...(take a few pictures so you know where all the hoses re-attach)

ALL it takes for an engine to run is:
1. A timed spark
2. Adequate compression
3. Proper fuel/air ratio delivered
