97 Polaris 400 sport 2 stroke big bore 440

We had this 4weeler for 3 days and while my hubby was riding it, it just stopped running. We cant get it to start so we can ride it.

What could be wrong with it?

Check for spark, check for compression, getting fuel at the carb.

We did check the sparkplug and its good. There is only 15lbs of compression and there should be over 100lbs.

There is your problem. At the least, the top end needs rebuilt.

Thats what we are going to do. Is that the reason the compression is low because the top end needs rebuilt.
