    My Ranger has recently started acting up. I believe some water got into the fuel system last week. Tank has been drained and refilled but performance issues have remained. Lag, backfire and will occasionally stall out but will restart after a minute or so. Feels like ignition has been turned off...

    I have a 2002 Polaris scrambler 90 that has no spark. It lost spark a few months ago after I shut it off to take a short break after riding for a while and about an hour later when I tried to start it again, it would not start. It always started in the first kick so this was a bit of a surprise...

    I recently purchased this 2005 sportsman 600. First time on trails today and the odometer kept going blank and engine would shut off. I can tap the plastic top of the headlight and get the power back to the odometer then start back up. It got worse as the ride went. I’ve pulled the lid and...

    I have a 2001 sportsman 400. I took it camping this last weekend and it started just fine when we unloaded it. It rained like hell that night and the following morning it wouldn't start . I finally had to hold the push up start button while I turned the key. When the key finally hit the start...

    I'm working on a 1986 polaris trail boss 250 and cannot get a spark to the spark plug. I have replaced the ignition coil, CDI, spark plug, stator, voltage regulator, reverse speed limiter, and every cable. I was reading through the service manual and the test of the stator said, "check between...

    Hello. So I'm still fighting this start on ether an run on gas problem. I tested fuel pump and if I turn the key on it quickly jumps to 19-20 psi. If I turn the key off it holds pressure and builds to 39 psi on second turn of the key. Is that normal? If I hit it with carb cleaner it fires up and...

    Hey guys, I have a 06 predator, I wrecked really hard in Nov. 2009. I wrecked pretty hard rolling the quad. Slightly injured, I roll the quad back over and tried to start it. It turned but wouldn't fire. Took it to a shop here in Vegas, in Dec of 09, they put a new starter on and said it...

    I recently rolled my trail boss 330 on the pavement. Since then, the engine will only run for 3-5 seconds and the ignition kills it. Eng has brand new battery, good oil and pressure. When the engine stalls, i can blip the on/off switch from from kill to run and the engine will continue to run...

    Ok folks I have a 2003 Sportsman 500 HO with no spark at the plug. I have repaced the ignition coil and the stator (Ricky Stator was fast by the way), the only thing I know left to replace is the CDI Box. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get one without having to spend mega $$...

    I have been working on this problem all summer. My daughter has a sportsman 90 that runs fine, until the battery runs down. Then if I charge the battery overnight, it runs great again, until the battery dies again. I pulled the stator and had the shop test it. It was bad, so I replaced it...

    Just bought an 01 sportsman H.O. (red) from a friend, it had no key, so we went to a Polaris dealer and got a new ignition for it, but cannot figure out the wiring. The diagram from the polaris site shows 8 wires whilst the atv only has 6. And also, we cannot seem to find a "start button" does...

    I have an '03 600 Twin. It died just after hunting season started. I have managed to find the service manual and have followed the instructions to troubleshoot a no spark problem. I am in spec for everything I can test except the CDI. I cannot find one for less the a couple of hundred bucks...

    The bike was running fine and sat for about 2 months or so over the winter. It was outside under a tarp. But went to start and wouldn't. I checked for spark and had none. Changed the spark plug and still no spark. On the CDI box there is: Black/Red White...
