i have a polaris explorer 1999 500. the problem is we rebuilt the motor and replaced the cam. now it won’t start. we finally put a timing light on it and it reads 11 degrees out. any ideas of how to correct this.
I thought all the Xplorers were 2 strokes. 250 and 400 engines. If you have a 4 stroke then I don't think you have an Xplorer. The 500 could be a Magnum or Sportsman. Either way, the method to change the timing will be to move the stator plate behind the flywheel. Going back to the basic things though. You have spark, fuel and air? Compression is correct? Will it pop and fire on starting fluid? If you want to know exactly what you have, post up the VIN and we can run it and find out.
In 99 there was a 500; Scrambler, Sportsman, Magnum and 6x6
All the 500 engines (EH50PL) spec. timing at 30* BTDC @ 3500 RPM
11 degrees is not off enough to prevent starting - 11 degrees advance is about normal at cranking speed - 11 degrees retarded will make starting easier, but will hinder acceleration and high speed performance
What do you consider is high miles for a polaris or any atv?
My bear hunting guide in Quebec has 15,000 miles on his machine that he bought in 2006. It runs strong.
I don't know. When I look at machines on ebay or craigs list I think they have high miles at 3000. Correct me...maybe I'm...
I got scammed for $80 on the forum from someone selling a used speedometer. Username, Frow5656 said a friend had Osbey that had one. Beware of the emails from [email protected], [email protected]
And the phone number 707-861-0828
as further research has found them to be scamming many forums...
2015 polaris sportsman 570 super low miles. just out of the blue dies on me and throws this error code. it is not even in the manual but seems related to throttle position. anyone know what the common cause of this error code is and the fix?
i have a 2015 sportsman 570 giving me problems. only about 200 miles of desert/street riding in las vegas. one thing i checked is the throttle play/etc. i don't think it is my main problem but when i opened the top, the contacts were together, so i "tightened" up the slack adjuster...
