I don't want to tell you something you already know, but you didn't mention that you tried your choke and whether it closes the inlet to the carburetor.

I have a 2005 Polaris Ranger 500 with Carburetor fuel system. After running for 30 minutes or so it will stop and will not restart. Let it set for an hour or longer, it will restart and run fine.


Sounds like the a component of the ignition system is defective, as to which part you will need to determine that by testing. It can be scanned for codes by the dealer to help in diagnosing.

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.

If you are certain the spark plug(s) is in good condition and correctly gapped, and the magneto is working normally, then you may have a fuel system problem. A quick diagnosis of fuel system issues is to spray a shot of starter fluid or WD-40 into the intake through the throttle body. If the engine fires for a bit then quits, it's a fuel system issue. Small engines do not do well with old ethanol-containing fuel. If it's turned yellow, drain it out and replace it, and remove any in the carburetor float bowl also.

Air leaks in the carburetor or intake manifold gasket may also cause hard starting. A sticky carburetor float or float valve is another possibility, especially if the engine was sitting for a long time with ethanol fuel drying out in the float bowl. A dirty air filter will also cause starting issues.
