I have a 08 sportsman 500, I have recently cleaned the fuel tank, fuel block, and carburetor. Was riding it today it ran perfect for about 30 to 45 mins. That's when trouble set in, now it will start and idle but won't take any fuel just bogs down and dies when trying to accelerate. I bypassed the fuel block to see if something in it was causing it and still does the same thing. This is my second polaris and so far I'm wishing I would have stayed with yamaha. My other sportsman won't fire and it's got a new stator, plug, and wire... but I'm more concerned about the 08 500 bc it's in at least idling state.. any help about what to check or fix will be greatly appreciated before I decide to trade it in.
