    My ‘04 Sportsman 500HO has the OEM PN 3131567 carb. Attached to the drain on the bottom of the float bowl is a vinyl tube with, what I think is, a check valve built in the drain tube. I recently had the float bowl drain tube off and noticed that after starting and accelerating the engine, gas...

    I purchased a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 500HO carbed and bought it non-running. I got it running and was driving like normal, then began to have sputtering issues. If you gave it gas it would just sit there and hesitate/sputter and would eventually clear up and it would take off. It got to the...

    I've been trying to get my magnum running after sitting for a year and I can't get it to idle and if it does idle it dies after 20secs but I tried to rule out all the common suspects and I bought a new carb and fuel pump and I still can't get it to run I'm pretty new to carbureted engines but I...

    Hello! I have zero experience with ATVs aside from some basic knowledge. Last ride, we had to pull out a stuck wheeler, and while doing so, my 2004 polaris Sportsman 700 got damaged. We believed it to be the belt, because it would buck forward or backwards after putting it in gear. We replaced...

    I've got a 2004 Polaris sportsman 500 H.O. I noticed a lot of fuel coming from the carb overflow line both while running and while the machine is off. I figured it was a stuck float, bad needle etc so I put a brand new cheap carb on so I could keep using the machine while I cleaned the OEM carb...

    Hello all! Happy Memorial Day! I have a 1998 Sportsman 500. I just put a brand new carb on it. It won’t start, not a big surprise starting out after new carb install, but it won’t even start with starter fluid. Any ideas? I’m perplexed.

    I have a sportsman 400 4x4 It keeps stalling. If you let it sit for about 10 to 15 seconds it starts right back up. You can drive it another 50 feet and it will do it again. And it does it about every 50 feet. I put a new stator on it thinking it was that. The motor was just rebuilt It doesn't...

    2005 sportsman 500 ho Carb Runs great down low but if held at 3000 rpm it sputters and sounds like it’s hitting the rev limiter but when given more gas picks right up and runs great up top. Carb was cleaned new fuel filter and intake boot, but hasn’t really helped the issue. Any ideas?

    Hey guys. I’m over here racking my brain trying to figure this out. A few days ago my Atv started sputtering and would only run with the choke out. So I cleaned out the carb and decided to order a rebuild kit. Well the Atv idles perfect, but if I give it much throttle at all it boggs down...

    Hey guys, I inherited a 2008 Trailblazer 330 from a family member that hasn't been used in two years. My son and I decided to take it on as a project and cleaned it up and replaced the carb, oil, filter, battery and spark plugs to see if we could get it working. It turns over but will not...

    Hey guys I have a 2000 scrambler 500 4x4 when I got it it would only run on choke. I got a new carb because I dont know anything about fixing or setting a carb. It still wouldn't run so I tweaked adjustments and got it to run but only when I covered carb with my hand almost all the way. We found...

    My carb is leaking from the bowl overflow nipple. I’ve checked everything I have seen recommended in this site and have not solved the problem. Rebuilt the carb, adjusted the float. Checked needle seat. I then replaced the carb and fuel pump twice. Still can’t stop the leak. I bought it...

    Our 03 sportsman 400 was left untouched for some time so we took it to a local repair shop to get it back in working order. When we got it back we drove it not more than 5 miles before it started smoking, turns out whoever worked on it forgot to put oil back in it. The piston and rings burned up...

    Okay I know its a carb or spark plug issue? Am I correct? The four wheeler will bog a little bit, then go but it’s a slow takeoff and low power from 20-30 mph, it’s got equal to less power than my king quad 450, what in the carb would cause this? Thank you all in advance, you have all been a...

    Hi, I have a sportsman 90. When starting cold with choke it is starts and dies unless I give it a little throttle. When started it will die at idle without a little throttle. After I run for 5 to 10 minutes it starts fine and idles will. I inspected the carb recently and cleaned all holes with...

    I just purchased a 07 sportsman 450 that is having carburetor issues. When I started going through the carb I found that the previous owner had glued a hardware bolt into a hole located on the right side as you can see in the image. I got the bolt out and it looks like it should be just a...
