    Hi there, I’m new to this forum but it looks like there is a wealth of knowledge here so I figured that someone might have had this problem before and could help. I’m fairly new to owning ATVs and carburetors in general but I have a very good automotive background. That being said, this bike ran...
  2. Bogs out and backfires

    Polaris Sportsman
    My sportsman 500 EFI is bogging out and backfiring. Some history. We bought the ATV used, it had been sitting for about 8 months. We went for a rip and after about 4 hours tipped it in a big puddle (over my knees) it started bogging out and backfiring. We towed it home and changed the fuel...

    I have a 91 Polaris Trail Boss (4x4) that I just recently put a new piston in.

  7. 91 350L 4x4 bogging down

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 91 350L 4x4 that runs great for about a 100yds and then starts to bog. Hold the throttle, it will bog and die as if it is out of gas. If you let off it idles fine. Idle around for a couple of minutes, throttle up again for about another 100yds, bogs down. It always starts right up and...

    I have a Polaris Xplorer 300 4x4 and I recently had the top end re-done. The first time I took it out, I ran it about ten minutes. After that, it looses power. It bogs down. When you put it in neutral, and rev it up, it acts fine. If you put it in gear, it doesn't go anywhere. You can push it...
