Polaris sportsman 90 problems

I can't get my ATV to keep running unless I hold in the throttle. Can I adjust throttle or carb?

it's #6 in the diagram, goes straight into the middle of the carb. screw in to raise idle.

if it's not that #7 may be dirty.

I have looked at both of your threads. Let me start by asking is this your personal fourwheeler and how old are you. Would like to try and help out but just want to know the basics. I think we all here on the forum may need a little more info. With this particular problem it seems like your choke may need some adjustment. Also how old is your fourwheeler..

It is a 2008 that I have for my son. When I took the carb off, the choke seems to work pretty well. I think #7 should be clean b/c I have taken it all apart. I like the idea of adjusting #6. I have it screwed all the way out thinking more gas would get in. So maybe I need to screw it in. I will try that tonight. Thanks!

#6 is the idle. screw it in and the bike should run. if it's all the way out then thats the problem. it is basically a wedge that lifts the slide up giving more throttle at idle.

new light bulb in taillight works. Must have been bulbs. Screwed in idle screw yesterday and idle worked. Went back today and now I can't get anything to start even with starter spray. Pulled out the plug and I can't see any spark. Looked up and saw 1 of 4 wires solder loose from a white rectangle. Made sure it is touching. Still no spark.

#14 is a resistor. probably need a new one. it may have burnt the fuse when it broke and why the bulbs burnt also.
