You might have solved this problem already but I'll throw this at you anyway. I had a similar problem with a 1991 SRV. The problem I had was that the engine was would kill on me when I was ridding, but only after about 30 min to an hour of running. After working on it I found out that the adjustment at the carb for the oil injection was off and what was happening was that the engine wasn't getting enough oil, so it was over heating to the point where it didn't destroy the engine, just enough to seize it up until it cooled down then was free again. I hope it helps you out.

I have a 1991 snowmobile Polaris 650 triple with a rebuilt top and bottom motor was running great shut it off, the next day went to start it wouldn't start pulled the three plugs. They were wet. I went...

Hi Bryan:
The only way that gas can get from the fule tank to the internals of the engine is through the carb. Depending on what slope you parked it on, the fuel tank must have been higher than the Carb, and, the float valve (or equivalent) in the carb is letting the gas flow through into the intake manifolds. At any given time, at least one intake valve would be open so the fuel would enter the cylinder and leak past the rings into the bottom end. Trying to start it in this super flooded condition would account for all plugs being wet.
Attack the carb(s) and you should find the problem.
Will hope for a fast fix and lots more snow for you.

Gas continues to run from my 1987 Yamaha XLV snowmobile after the engine is shut down

The needle and seat in the carburator need to be replaced . Gas continously flowing is a stuck float which operates the needle valve in the carb.

Have spark. have fuel. No start. was running well with intermittent choke use to correct bogging. wassup? I.m confused.

there is a chance that your computer needs to be ' Re-Flashed ',, this is now the most common problem with the Polaris snowmobiles -- they just can't seem to get this all right. I have the 900RMK ( the first one ) and after going round and round with Polaris ( in and out of the shop over 20 times ) it is now running good. lots of times the dealer will re-flash the unit with no charge to you and it only takes a few minutes.
sorry to hear that you are having troubles with your Polaris --- I work and live out in the middle of nowhere Alaska and I see many sleds come through here and it is always a Polaris sled that brakes down out here and needs to be towed out ( with a very sad rider steering it )..and after all my trouble that I had with mine and lack of help from Polaris I will never buy Polaris ever again. but stop by the dealer and get the re-flash,, it will work great after that,, ( until the next problem :-) ).
Happy NewYear !!

I have a 97 polaris indy 500 snowmobile. The spark

Wait, it just wont turn over, like the engine won't rotate?, that is either a broken crank, which not unusual for those 500's or you seized it, (welded the piston to the jugs). if this isn't what you mean, and it will turn over but not on its own power, then either your jets in the carbs are clogged, fuel may get to it, but not through it, or your rings are stuck closed and giving you low compression, check this by pulling it over slowly, you should feel each piston completing the revolution with a prominent glug glug. grab your primary clutch and rotate it back and forth, it should have a bit of play, but if it clanks and has alot of play, your crank is busted

92 250 polaris indy lite snowmobile that back fires when pulling over

I have the same problem.....I believe it is a result of low compression. I have also noticed the problem to be worse in warm climate. Check compresion on both cylinders would be a good place to start.

First off, you need to put this under a different product.

For another, check the battery before you ask dumb questions!

Most efi sleds use a battery. Check it.
