Question about Winter Sports

Polaris Indy 340 has barely any power

When I try to take off, I have to open it full throttle and I barely move the sled. I tried changing the plugs it did help a little but it just went back to same problem.

Check your compression to see where you are. if it is too low you may need new rings or even bore your cylinder and new piston and rings.
that is where i would start

Had the seat recovered on my sled(tank/seat combo) and now cant get fuel from tank.sled fires up when fuel poured into cylinders but then dies when fuel is burnt off.sled is a 97 indy sport 440

take the fuel line from tank to fuel pump off the fuel pump blow air threw it and check for blockages no blockages? now the line from pump to carbs no blockages? rebuild the fuel pump cheap easy 20-30 dollars on ebay for the rebuild kit.

I have a 1995 Polaris Indy 500. The engine floods out immediately. Once so bad yet a friend was going to borrow my machine it was running out of the exhaust pipe. If the plugs are dry, you get one pop...

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.
have fun out in the snow --- ride on !!!

I have a polaris 2009 600 IQ shift snowmobile that I would like to put a 12 volt dc plug on for my GPS. I got a outlet from polaris and I found the acc plug on the sled.I do not have electric start so...

I Have a 2010 Polaris Shift (with No electric start) and over the clutch on the left side (sitting on the sled) is a bunch of plugs, one with 4 wires.. and a longer plug with even more wires.... The One with 4 wires has a Yellow wire that produces about 10V AC, which is a good tap for a electric shield. The Longer plug has a solid Red wire which produces around 13.5V DC, which is a good tap for your 12V Plug. Connect your positive to the red wire and your ground to the brown wire (also your ground can be securely attached to your frame by a nut located just above your plugs on the frame) and your good to go!.. with the 2010 shift you don't need a battery for it to produce DC voltage.

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.
