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.

Have a 2000 polaris scrambler 500 and only backfires and pops in reverse. drive has full powrer and starts great


your reverse over ride not working , u need to open switch box see if you have power to the switch when bike is running with a test light then with brake on and in reverse check the output wire to see if you have power out when depressed be sure you have the wheels up in the air when you do this for safety sake

96 polaris scrambler bared it over and putpiston and ringsit runs for 3 to 4 mins and shuts off and it keeps doing the same thing it wont start right back up until it cools down


when you rebuilt it did you find what killed it? lots of times crank seals go bad causing an air leak and they run lean and ruin the motor. could be happening still.

My 2001 polaris scrambler 500 is back firing out the carb what can it be and do you no the compression it should have.


If it is running but backfiring out the carb, I'd be looking at a burned intake valve.
If it's not nunning but backfires out the carb when you try to start it, I'd be looking at bad ignition or valve timing. I'd suggest that you review any recent maintenance to see if that could be the source of the problem.

Polaris Scrambler won't idle when moving


If a tune up doesn't help, rebuild the carb. the ethanol in gas ruins the gaskets.
