SOURCE: ATV RUNS BARELY SOUNDS LIKE IT IS EXHAUSTING BACK THROUGH CARB

Check the cam shaft. The exhaust lob is the weak spot. They will wear down to nothing.

Yes, yes, and yes. Begin by installng new spark plugs. Also, a new air filter, and finally put carbeurator cleaner into your fuel tank, usually one ounce per gallon. You can purchase these items at any auto parts store. Bring the old plugs and air filter in so u are sure to get the correct ones. Finally, charge up your battery.

SOURCE: our polaris sportsman 500 6x6 won't start

You might have a bad connector unit. The clue is still the 'moving of the wiring harness kills the engine'.

SOURCE: Polaris 1999 Sportsman 500. Had no fire. Replaced

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be 2 problems, a bad ground connector and a weak battery. Hope this helps! In trying to repair it though, I nicked a wire on the stator. Do you have a spare for sale?

1997 425 magnum 4x2 new carb,coil,plug,wont rev past halve throttle then sputters no power


Fuel starvation (supply or wrong carb or tune) and/or insufficient or poor quality spark.

Make sure the air filter is clean and only test with it connected as it sometimes makes a lot of difference. It could be worth checking the exhaust for blockages.

89 Polaris Ranger500 6x6 side by sideis coughing,spitting and backfireing thew carb.whats the fix


I would start by pulling and cleaning the carb, air filter and spark plug. Usually the cause starts with dirty air filters that gets the carbs dirty which then cause the polaris to run rich and the plug will start to foul. The unburnt fuel ignites at the wrong time and back fires. A less likely problem would be out of timing.

Why do i have to run my 96 polaris 400 2x4 atv in half choke when i ride


If you haven't taken that carb apart and cleaned it in awhile - more than likely your jets (what's used to pick the gas up out of the bottom of the carb (the bowl) are clogged up. You can pick up a can of carburetor cleaner with a wire basket inside from any major parts store specifically for carburetors to soak in. The size of a paint can & around $20. Soak the carb in that for awhile after disassembling, make sure none of your ports are clogged - air compressor gun or you can also use keyboard cleaner - air dusters. You want to verify that air can pass through all those ports properly and blowing air through them is how you do it. Carb does need to be completely disassembled to do this. The jets in the carb suck up fuel due to the vacuum the engine creates turning over. Once it starts spinning - it builds up a little suction and everything is fine. When the jets start to clog - one of the ways to force the carb to pull harder is to work the choke. The only thing that choke is doing is operating the butterfly. When the choke is on - the butterfly closes. Making all of that suction stay right there in the carb. Once the bike starts to warm up - you release the choke - and the butterfly will open - allowing more air into the system. You're running at half choke - butterfly half closed - to force those jets to pull harder. If they were clear? No need to run at half choke.

My 2001 500 ho sportsmen starts with choke on while running she pulls back choke and shuts off


It sounds like the main jet is plugged. While the enrichner is pulled, it pulls fuel to run. Remove and clean the carb and the air cleaner.

04 330 magnum will not stay running without choke pulled out halfway to full choke from brand new in 2004


First make sure the carb.mounting flange is tight. being loose or cracked will allow air in leaning out the air fuel mixture. Next remove the low jet in the carb. its most likely plugged. try carb cleaner and blow it out with compressed air. Last resort,take the paper off of a twist tie and run it through the jet. If all else fails,buy a new one.thier only around 4 dollars.
