there is nothing to adjust on the switch, you just want to check throttle freeplay as dale said. the switch is just there to kick in if it thinks the throttle is stuck wide open and severly limits the machine via rpms

there is a 2 wire plug going to the throttle cable (thumb) spot. will those wires lead to the switch in question? how would i check to see if the switch is bad. the throttle cable seems to be ok (not sticking) and the lever has some play in it.

blueline,
can you give me a schematic for the throttle controls on the handle bars so I can see what the two wire up there do? also, i think i'm going to replace the fuel pump as this could be the issue, how much and where would I get it? Tried it again last night and i can get it to idle, but when i "punch" it, it'll die. so if the fuel pump is only giving a certain amount to the fuel bowls then this might explain it or if the throttle safety switch is acting up...... I've also considered a clogged main jet, but it's way to consistant to be that in my opinion. I don't think after cleaning the carb 4 times that something is clogging it the same way everytime.

the OEM one that you could get from any dealer for a fuel rebuild kit is:

part # 3088170 and it retails for $41.72

or.....
you could get a brand new aftermarket fuel pump from someone like western power sports for about the same price. any polaris dealers should be able to order from WPS for you. i provided a link for you to the online WPS catalog that has the fuel pumps and rebuild kits.

The throttle safety on my atv was inside the throttle on the handle bar. I pulled the cover and found the spring was worn on the thumb control... It was hitting the switch and wouldn't let my bike run... So rather than 150 for a new throttle I used my 2 dollar wire snips and now she runs like a champ...
