  1. ATV General Discussion
    Alright, I think I have got it figured out! The 02 sportsman 700 literally overfills every carburetor I’ve put on it... I’m thinking fuel pump is dumping to much fuel.. it is original and has been opened up before because it was clogged.. Can that be my issue.. the bike will start up, not easy...

  3. ATV General Discussion
    No means to bring up an old topic for an old bike but this is very weird. The bike is a 2002 Sportsman 700, I just put two fresh gaskets in my exhaust trying to fix the leak and glowing red hot manifold, it is still doing it. It only glows under load, at idle it is good. Also my manifold did...
  4. Polaris ACE
    Recently water made its way into the Ace 400 fuel tank. We took it to a shop and they did not fix anything. I have since started diving into it trying to get it working again. Symptoms: when first started on an occasion it seems like nothing is wrong and runs great. After about a minute it dies...

    My 06 700 is bogging down when I throttle up. I just installed a new fuel pump, regulator, and filter. Also new plugs. Does anyone out there have any solutions or suggestions? New to the community.
  6. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 450 H.O. It is pretty much brand new with only 40 hours on it. For some reason fuel is not getting into the engine. If I put fuel in the engine it will start for a few seconds and then cut out. I think it has something to do with the wiring connection to the fuel...
  7. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hello everyone! Glad to join the forums! I have a Phoenix 200, I believe its a 2008. Last year I had the carburetor replaced along with a few other things. It ran nicely until I stopped using it for a couple of months. I forgot to treat the fuel and it was just left sitting for about six...

  10. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hope someone can help me with this. I have a 2002 Polaris sportsman 700. I completely rebuild it (pretty much). It was running pretty good until I took it for a trail ride. About half way through the ride it shut down. It would start but when I gave it gas it would just bog down and die. I could...

    Gas is dripping out of the vent tube that hangs out the bottom of the skid plate. I put gas in the tank and it drips out of the tube until it is empty. What would cause this to happen?
  12. Polaris Outlaw
    Bought this new on June 11 2016. About 30 minutes of riding and i notice a fuel smell, stop the bike and notice fuel dripping from the vent tube. bikes not over full or being ridden crazy so i take it to the dealer. After two weeks of dodging me they finally tell me they have a fuel tank ordered...

    I just rebuilt my carb in my 03 predator and its leaks a lot of fuel over night, We went riding and it wasn't dripping, (I turn my fuel off when transporting and even when it just sits, even when i washed it after riding that same day there was nothing on the ground. So i parked it in my garage...
  14. Polaris Predator
    My 2005 predator 500 was barely starting and if It did would run rough. After looking into it I realized it was a bad fuel pump and disconnected the lines and ran a line from the tank straight to the carb to get me by for now. The quad ran great for hours with no issues. Is there any need to...
  15. Polaris Predator
    Hey everybody, So for starters I might as well say what I have done to the quad thus far. Some 560cc kit (We have rebuilt the entire engine when I got it. We did a conversion (not much of a conversion) from a ‘04 bottom end to a ‘05 bottom. Found out that the quad was bored out I believe it...

  17. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 2000 sportsman 500. I can't seem to get a pulse from the carb to work the fuel pump. I can blow into the fuel pulse line and get fuel to pump out. Also did a vacuum check on the pump and it looked good. It seems like the carb is not pulsing the pump. I started it up using a squeze ball...

  19. Polaris Trail Blazer
    The cylinder on my 2000 Trail Blazer 250 seized. I have taken it apart and the cylinder is being overhauled. During the disassembly process I found several very brittle, yellow hoses that appear to be vent lines. There is a larger hose that come from the front differential and goes up to the...
  20. Polaris Sportsman
    I recently bought a cobra fi2000r fuel programmer from motosport for my 2008 sportsman 800. I installed this on my machine and I loved it. The top end power was amazing. To install it all it took was to take the front box off and plug in 2 connectors and a ground. Unfortunately I just wrecked my...
