2005 Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI Low Idle

Recommended Posts

Hi all  My sportsman 800 starts and runs fine but the idle is too low so it won't stay running even when it is all warmed up.  I know there has to be an easy adjustment to this but I cannot find it in the owners manual.  Anyone know how to adjust?  Thanks

I don't think its adjustable without a special tool and the question is why is it low. I would try and clean the throttle body and check the throttle cable and make sure there is no dirt hanging it up. What year is it?

It is a 2005 sportsman 800 EFI

I will check the throttle cable and see if I can find any hang up.

@tristan6482 Thanks for the suggestion, I changed the plugs (which was kind of a pain) and the machine still wont idle well when first started but once warmed up it stays running.  Still seems the RPMs are low but it keeps running.

What is the reading of  your tps sensor. I belive it should  be .95 volts.

As stated  in my last post the only adjustment to the idle is the tps sensor. And there is not much adjustment on that

Hey Collin thanks but I am not sure what the TPS sensor is or how to get the reading you are asking about.

Throttle Position Sensor 😉

Should be on the side of the thotte boady with 2 screws with a 3 wire electrical conection. 1 wire will be 5 volt reference , 1 will be ground  and 1 will be the signal wire that goes back to ecu. If you have a hand held multimeter you can check check the signal by back probing  and setting meter to lowest DC scale. Or if you don't feel  comfortable testing the wiring and  can get to the sensor easily, start the engine loosen the screws that hold sensor and slowly rotate sensor 1 direction rpms should drop the other they should increase. Be careful and do not force anything.

Happy new year. So how did you fix the idle problem? I am also having a idle issue. It will run fine but will idle for a like 15 seconds then die. It will start just fine but won't stay idling.

@Nam Repus Nam I changed the spark plugs and that seemed to help some.  Once it is well warmed up it will idle now.  I need to get out my multi meter and follow the suggestions to check the signal but since I have been doing ok as is I have not taken the time to do that yet.  Good luck, happy new year to you too!

      Ok i am not quick to jump on a forum and post a question without doing my own part and trying to research and solve the problem myself but I cannot find any definitive information anywhere about my problem. I have a Big Bear 350 that I picked up very cheap which had been sitting in a field for years. I am not new to building wheelers but this one has me beat. After rebuilding top end and replacing the carb it fires right up. The vin has some number worn off from being next to the shifter but from the parts in the clutch i assume it is early since 87 parts seem to be the only ones that match. Thats when the plot thickened. 
      Reverse works fine but when in the forward gears it would not go past 1st and was hard to get into neutral. ie. a it took a million clicks up to thump into 1 and as many down to find neutral. still never getting past 1st. within minutes i could hear metal screeching and whirling around in the clutch side of the motor. I took the cover off to find that 3 out of the 4 springs on the centrifugal clutch had broken and were shredded. Also the black mechanism that the pawl on shift shaft grabs moves was loose so it wasnt always grab to change the gear on the transmission. I tightened that mech, and replaced the springs assuming it would solve the problem since the gears were not actually changing from the lever and the carrier should obviously not only have 1 spring left. 
      After putting everything back together it did go into 1st fairly easy but then i again couldnt get it back to N without a million clicks down and couldnt get it to go past 1st. I did one time get it into a higher gear who knows what one but i gained some speed and dropped rpm.
      If i jack both the front and the back wheels off the ground and run the motor it becomes much easier to shift and i can get it to run through the gears pretty well. Usually going into N without a huge fight. not perfect but it does hit neutral and roar while spinning the wheels instead of gain rpm and with the power. 
      I have tried every possible position on the clutch adjustment screw without any noticeable result. I think this could potentially be where my problem lies at this point.
      does anyone know if the case is supposed to be threaded? because mine is not. obviously it seems as though it should be since every other bike ive touched has been. i even took the cover off my quadrunner to make sure it wasnt crazy.
      when the screw is adjusted and the jam nut tightened the screw will just slide back out since there is no threading in the case. accomplishing nothing. 
       
      Does anyone have any insight on any of this? Are my plates stuck, Centrif clutch worn out, case stripped or something else crazy im over looking?

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?
