2005 Polaris Trail Blazer 250 won't start

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, trying to get a quad running again. It was running fine but the electric start did not work. My uncle was using it and the pull start snapped. So I replaced the pull start and electric starter motor. Now it just cranks and cranks but will not start. I have spark, I have fuel to the carb, I know this is a 2 stroke with a separate oil tank, what else should i check?

Trying to get 10 posts to download a manual, also wanted to ask can I use any old 2 stroke oil like from a chain saw?

Fuel to the carburetor does not mean fuel to the engine.  I would spray starting fluid into the air intake during the cranking and see if it fires.  If so then the carburetor has a blockage on the main fuel intake at the bowl/float.

I was trying with starter fluid straight into the intake, no good, once I finish the other 2 quads i'm working on and free up space in my garage ill bring that one home and dive into it deeper

I'm praying its not compression

Take the carb off and spray it.  Hopefully its got good compression. I don't trust oil injection. I use straight mix in a 2 stroke.

I've wrenched on a few things and recommend brake cleaner over starting fluid, it aint so hard on the motor. And if you wrench any stuff you also have some laying around.
