    thank you for the response. I put new plugs in, sprayed ether and still nothing. i pulled the plugs and cranked the engine till the excess fuel was all out. Still nothing. I will now check the air cleaner. Im also going to put it in the garage and let it thaw out and see if that helps. If you have any other ideas please let me know. Thanks again

Please check if there is flooding in the carb. If not then may be it needs a choke as it must be running in extreme cold conditions.

May have spark, but the plug could still be fouled or dirty, or bad. The spark may be poor. Try cleaning the plug first, then try a new plug.

Also, check the air cleaner, because if its clogged it will flood the engine.

If you still have problems, give it a shot of ether.

I just purchased 2003 Polaris Trailblazer for my boys for Christmas. I test drove it for about 5 minutes (in a subdivision). It started and ran perfect. I started it a few times over the days before...

that would be the fist place i would look if you have a electrical meter place it in the ohms position take some reading on the primary and secondary windings on the coil when it is cold then run until it stalls and take them again they should read the same if not the coil is at falt

93 polaris xlt tripple wont run to full potential

The issue I had with my 94 was due to an oil adjustment, wich you can find below the carbs. It ran great at full throttle but once it sat at idle, the plugs would get wet and the same type of bog would accure. Get new plungs and make sure all three are firing first, if they are then the oil adjustment is off. If not sorry to say but you may have a bad coil.
