2004 Trail Boss 330

OK Guys I need some help I just bought this 04 Trail Boss it runs very good after it get's warm up only problem is getting it to warm up I choke it & it starts right away & I keep pulling choke in out just to keep it running after 3to4 min it will finally run with out the choke. Why is it taking so long to warm up.
THANKS

My 2000 325 does this, as well as my 2012 sportsman 500.

I thought I was the only one... for me, I pull choke out and it starts right up... within a minute or so it is already choking out, as you'd expect, and I need to play with choke/gas for a few minutes and sometimes stall/restart before it runs smoothly...

I just had the carb cleaned, tuned and needle/seat replace... my experience with this is that on a cold day when choke is applied it stays on high/choked idle for a couple minutes before bogging and then stepping down choke smooths out until finally warm... my Trailboss just doesn't behave this way and it is a pain to get it to the point it smooths out... ;(

trailboss 330

i all so have a 2005 330 trailboss with carb problems it starts up and takes sometime to get running but 1/2 to full throttle bogs and the exaust turns red so i incresed thr pilot jet and the main jet to a 165 and pilot to a 50 witch made it better but if i hook up a rubber tube to a uni filter it bogs again and back fiers i dont know why so if any one knows let me know

Boy from what reading & hearing about this model we'll just have to live with it. That's really a shame I thought Polaris always put out a good product but this is a very bad problem for them & they should have a recall on this model. Thanks for your reply

Our 03 trail boss 330 does the same thing, and even our 2012 sportsman 500 takes forever to warm up!

This seems to be a flaw in the choke/carb design to me... not an expert here, but every other 4-stroke engine I have is very predictable on cold starts working thru the choke process to run smoothly...

Definitely a shame to see that even newer models have this issue, this is fundamental operation of an engine and you'd think that Polaris would figure this out... ;(

My 500 sportsman is not doing this so much anymor since it more broken in now with 20hrs.

Iwould bet they all need to be adjusted a little bit

I just had mine in the shop for tune-up, carb clean and they put new needle and seat in... perhaps it still needs to be tuned, but would expect it... dunno, seems to be across the board, no pun intended...
