Be sure to pull both sparkplugs out and test each cylinder for compression with a screw in compression tester available at your local auto parts store or on eBay for not much money. A lack of compression in one cylinder can cause the symptoms you mention.

1997 Polaris rmk 700 has no spark. Kill switch is in run position and key is on. Sled ran fine last year. I get a little tail light when I pull starter rope


try bypassing the kill switch and the ignition switch. Often the switches fail before the other components. the ignition can usually be bypasses by simply unplugging it from the harness. You may have to loop the wires to bypass the kill switch.

I have an 2002 polaris Rmk with a igition switch that has 2 differant fuel settings (normal octane & preminum). The instructions that came with the tether switch does not mention this type of ignition...


Not sure if this helps...but my bro has a 01' RMK and it says to only use premium gas, I believe he may have tried to use regular or even mid grade and it bogged or started to. Never the less...I think that it is always best to run premium in high perfomance "toys" like smowmobiles and such...

2003 polaris 550 trail touring,revearse not working


the high idle could be a dirty needle check your carbs i have that problem with my 550 rmk the reverse light could be your wire harness check your wires with any wire tester idk the specs for it but also clean your connections with some electrical wire component cleaner and use so di-electrical grease if all else fails you may need to bring it to a mechanic for a small fix like that it should run up that high

Polaris rmk 500 backfires when it gets hot then won't start


Ok this sounds like a similar problem that I have had with a 500xc engine...This engine has been running fine for the last 5 yrs until a few weeks ago when it became a pig to start and when it did only run on one cylinder eventually running on both and when it gets to a certain temp would cut out and then not start again for 5mins, changed everything we could think of, checked compression, barrels fine, carbs clean new cdi, coil, plugs, leads, fuel pump and pipes, then someone came accross with checking the resistance on the temp sensor on the top of the head which were different values to the the book and on another identical engine, I borrowed a spare sensor and although still a pig to start it was an improvement when running, need to buy a new sensor to rule it out
, can anyone else shine some light on this?
