Polaris 500 xc backfiring through carbs, running on 1 cylinder

This sled is backfiring through carbs and it feels like its running on one cylinder. One plug is dark and one looks washed. I just put new gastank,headgaskets,basegaskets,cleaned carbs. Pistons look good and there isn't any blowby.The compression in each cylinder is 120.

this is caused by a stuck float in the carburetor. remove the carb from the machine, remove the float bowl from the carb, using carb cleaner - spray the components down and clean out any debris, make sure all parts move smooth and seals are clean, clear and not cracked,, re-assemble the unit and install back onto the sled. this will stop the constant flow of fuel.

Polaris xc 500 twin one cylinder not running right


DOES THE CYLINDER HAVE LOW COMPRESSION. IT SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE AROUNT 100-130 PSI AND NO MORE THAN 15% DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO CYLINDERS. IF IT IS LOW, A REBUILD IS GOING TO BE REQUIRED. IF IT IS OK THAN CHANGE THE PLUGS AND DO A CARB CLEANING AND SYNC THEM.
