I have a 1998 Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV that won,t idle and backfires. Chuggs when idiling, Starts hard, even with choke. Hitting the throttle makes it die out


Could be a vacuum leak in the intake tract. Try spraying carb cleaner with the straw that come with can around the intake and carb area. If there is a leak, engine speed well change.

My 2007 450 sportsman won.t start but she backfires


Remove the seat, and take the cover off the air filter container. Place your hand over the end to aid in fuel flow to the carburator. You might not be getting enough fuel which is causing it to backfire and not start completely.
Attempt to start the ATV once you get fuel flowing you should be all set. Clean that filter as well.

I have a 1990 klf300b3 atv starte fine idles fine some time revs an runs fine outher times misfires when trying to rev have changed plug had carb an tank cleaned when misfiring can let idle or turn of


Replace the line from tank to carb.

Next time you run it, take the gas cap off when it starts to misfire. If it runs OK with the cap loose, your cap vent isn't working.
