  1. 1990 Trail Boss 250 Idle

    Polaris Trail Boss
    My 250 2x4 runs great, but will not idle. In the past, once I drove it for a while it would seem to idle. But now, I can ride for 3 hours and when I stop it will shut off. It doesn't even need gas to stay running, as long as I just barely touch the throttle, it will stay running. I am...
  2. TBS settings

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hi, My 570 randomly has jitters. I keep the throttle in one position and it either adds extra throttle or if I push throttle it doesn't react. This also happens right after I go for a short 5 minute ride. Now I wanted to check if my TBS is offset. My Manual sais that one value is 0.43 Vdc when...

  6. No acceleration? 2001 Scrambler 90

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I'll make this short and let you guys know all that I do in hopes that I can diagnose this problem and get it fixed. The problem I have is that unless I start out slow and build up speed, I can't push the throttle lever far, and what ends up happening is that the engine seems to return to idle...

    Polaris Sportsman
    I have a new Sporsman XP 850 H.O. and I was wondering if anyone knew the factory setting for the Throttle position sensor? I would imagine I need to test the voltage on my multimeter, but I don't know the correct volatge settings. Does anyone have the factory spec or know the voltage?
