Working on 2002 700 sportsman in shop. Engine has no power. Pops and backfires at 1/2 throttle and above. Carb is clean. Good fuel flow. Checked stator output with DVA. 19v on charge coil. 6v on pulser. Would like to know if this is cdi related.

Handlebars. The throttle have wires going into it? If so open it up and you will find the rev limiter.  Try to separate the wires and see  if that clears things up.  Sometimes on the polaris bikes the rev limiter starts acting up.

don't think rev limiter is in handlebars. That would be throttle safety switch. I umpluged black wire to handlebars eliminating all switches up there

Double check that its not a separate set of wires in the handle bar. As well as trace them to be sure they are disconnected.  Or do what I did. Reconnect  everything and then open the top cover on the throttle and run the bike. While is backfiring etc separate the contacts on the throttle control and see if it clears. Only reason I’m pushing this theory is it happened to my bike and solved the problem.

Switch is not problem. What do you know about cdi box with built in coils?

Could be the cdi but not my first choice.  I would do some testing first. Maybe test some devices like the  pick up coil for starters. Also the stator coil maybe do an ohms test as well look at the secondary ignition coil.  Sometimes the spark breaks down after the engine is hot or in your case maybe it’s happening right away.  There is a tool to see if  the spark is breaking down while the bikes running. 

Its a useful tool. 

 

I know we are talking about electrical items are you sure it’s not a foiled plug or a fuel rich condition happening ? Or timing ?

Have that spark tester. New plugs, old ones looked ok. Made no difference. Gave you cranking voltages of charge and pickup coils in first post. Went thru carb with fine tooth comb. Polaris updated that ign system in 2004 or 05. Timing is on speck. Had flywheel off to check for damage, (loose magnets, Burnt coils) looks good. At a loss

I read that you gave  the cranking voltages on the first post.

NOT cranking voltages.Ohms reading on the coils like a said in my last post. This will at least put the coils in spec.  This should also be done on the rectifier/regulator. 

I remember a similar topic on this and it turned out to be a pick up coil that was the problem. Is was a hair to far from the flywheel and on higher rpms is started to act up causing this problem. It was in the Polaris forum. I would not be surprised if it’s the same thing.    

It was a while ago but should still be in the topics section of that forum.  

Maybe @Ajmboy or @Admin can help us dig it up?

I believe it was the gap between the pick up coil and flywheel. There is a spec limit on that.

sounds to me like a badly adjusted carb.  does it get better or worse as the motor gets warmer?

no change as motor warms up. What would I look for if cam or lifters were bad. Going to try different carb but think I am spinning my wheels.

Did you check the gap on the pick up coil ?

Your going to feel like your spinning your wheels and it gets frustrating. Keep calm and it will get sorted out. Some problems are more in-depth then others.  Process of elimination.

Sometimes get puff of smoke out of carb when clicking starter. Some times eng kicks back when trying to start. timing is about 9 degrees at idle. Book says 8

You may have to take a look at your valves and rocker arms etc. It’s possible somethings going on in there.  The back fire and puff of smoke out of the carb all though sounds like a timing thing but I guess it can’t hurt to have a look at the top end to make sure it’s all proper and valves are opening and closing the right way.

      Hi All,
      Hoping someone will be able to help.
      I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 
      I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...
      Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      So I picked up a Cannibal that has been sitting for many years. I wonder if anyone can tell me where that vacuum port is on the engine. I’ve found the one to the air box, pressure regulator, and ecu but can’t seem to locate the one on the engine. Thanks in advance for any help.

      I know...I feel stupid for asking.  I find it impossible to use the thumb throttle with my thumb when I have the bars turned full right. I have to reach across the top and grab the throttle from the front with my fingers. It isn't very smooth and I can't help but think that there must be a technique, mod or adjustment for this. How do I get past this?
