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 !!

    sorry, not helpful. re; 1995, 500cc indy classic. no computor. Lotsa miles and years of good service. Could the crankcase be loaded up with fuel because the clutch is dragging at low rpm?

    so sorry, I did not know the year of your sled.
    as far as the clutch dragging at low rpms -- this is sometimes caused by bad springs in the clutch or wrong belt size.
    and the fuel in the crankcase idea --- I am not to sure what you mean by that,, can you please clarify this thought.
    you might remove and clean the carburetor -- sometimes water and debris will sit in the bottom of the bowl and this can lead to a fowled up jet which will not give you the proper air fuel mix and might be one of the reasons you are having to play with the choke(?). I have also found that after years and years of use that the throttle slide gets pitted where the idle screw rests ( look at the slide and see if in fact this could be part of the problem,, and I have found that if you smooth this pit out and re-adjust the idle screw that this should give you a better and smoother idle.
    please let me know what you find out - as I work on snowmobiles 9 months out of the year here in Alaska and if I can learn something new I might be able to use it in my work.
    again, sorry for the mis-communication on make,year and model.
    have a great night,

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. The enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

Xr400r's been stood a while, had trouble starting it, changed the plug, now starts easier but bogs on use of the throttle and only runs with the choke on half, changed the fuel cleaned the main jet but...

Make sure the carb is thoroughly cleaned, all jets not just main. The half choke is compensating for the slow circuit jet. Check your air/fuel mixture. Also, check the air and fuel filter. If all checks out fine and you still encounter the problem, could be : bad gas, wrong spark plug heat range, or most likely the diaphragm for the top of the carb.

Poulan 16" saw, start fine,

Usually when a small engine starts fine.. runs fine.. gets hot it's ignition related.

First you want to make sure the cooling fins are clean.. remove any covers and clean the area around the head. If those fins are clogged.. not good.

Second I would check the spark.. and the spark plug condtion.

Also for power tools that don't get used that often.. fuel sytems get gummed up.. fuel gets old.. and folks tend to use the fuel in the can they mixed two seasons ago. Make sure the fuel mix is correct.

I assume it is running fine with the choke off.. however check the choke for proper operation.

Clean or replace the air filter as well.. once all the ignition and fuel components are in good order.. only then should you begin to adjust the carb. Probably not needed.. but don't do it until you are satisfied that you have good air fuel mix and proper spark.
Best of luck

2001 V star 650.. Bogs out then corrects itself

If the bike runs better with the choke on a quarter or more of it's range when you're riding it can mean that your motorcycle's engine isn't getting enough fuel into the engine to run normally. Meaning you are running too little fuel into the engine. This can show up as a dead white spark plug with glassy bubble deposits around the electrode.

Possible reasons for this condition;
a. The fuel filter.
b. Most likely the motorcycle hasn't been run enough, this allows the fuel to evaporate in the carburetor and plug the jets that regulate the fuel/air mixture.
