hello to all you polaris techs out there, im a shade tree mechanic now used to be a service manager at a local polaris dealer. since leaving i have lost my fell for them so i need some help please. i have a 95 425 mag 4x4, it has a bog around half to full throttle and it will not pull itself out of it. you can leave a gap in between the breather tube and your hand of about a .25 to .50 inch and it will open up. i chk the spk plug white, so i raised the needle one clip, turned the mixture screw out about 2 turns. no cracked intake boots, new float needle and seat, correct float level, all carb cleaned. rebuilt the fuel pump, works great, new lines. im stumped ive asked around no one knows. o yeah also done a visual on the cam and rockers look ok. please help me this thing is a true testimony to polaris it was totaled about 5 times from the previous owner and ran fine until my uncle let someone else work on it and now im stuck fixing the screw ups. thanks for the help CB

thanks for the welcome the 800 looks great with the headlight mod. i never really appreciated a polaris's ride quality and all the new inovations they had come out with until i went to a polaris test drive where we could drive all the new models and ride the competition. so how long have you been in the mechanic business do you work on a lot of polaris's. have you ever heard of this problem before? thanks for any input that you might have
