Have a 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700 that only has 34mi. on a carb & ring job.
Cut the gas off today to drain carb.Now engine will not idle.If I open throttle will run,but let off & will cut off.Can screw idle in with no change.
What happened? Why did this happen when fuel ran out?
Please help me,my ATV is a daily driver.

I recently bought a 2002 prairie second hand for 2000$ .. just for the record it has 28 inch zillas on it .. anyway . whenever i put it in any gear , it takes a second for it to engage ... and when it does it clunks into gear ... is that common for that quad for that year ? or is it cause the previous ower didn;t replace the clutch springs to heavier duty ones ?
i picked up a 400 ex from a friend of a friend that didnt run. he said he was riding it and then i cut off and would never start back up. Threw a battery in it and when i hit the starter there is no compression in the motor. doesnt really sound like it is even pushing the piston..
So i started with the tear down tonight and made it to getting the valve cover off. First thing im going to check is timing. Just looking at the cam everything looked good but i notice the decompression mechanism is sloppy and loose. The spring and plunger look okay but i can wiggle the whole mechanism and spin it around the cam. Is this normal??
also, anything that i should be looking for right of the bat? im planning on checking timing first just to make sure its in speck and then im going to pull the head off and see if i can see anything else. If nothing then ill pull the jug off and hopefully that will tell all.. Im really hoping i find the problem sooner than that but i have a bad feeling im not going to.:aargh:
