2007 Polaris Phoenix dies and refuses to start

Recommended Posts

I've bought a used 2007 Polaris Phoenix 200... it's in pretty good shape... but after it starts, warms up, a few minutes of my son riding around yard it will die... it refuses to start back until the next day, then same thing again... I've seen this is a problem but haven't found any real answers... my son is driving me crazy to get him back riding... any help is greatly appreciated...

That’s a great bike the Phoenix.  Take a look inside the thumb throttle cover there’s two wires inside the cover with a plastics partition that separates the wires. Mine was worn out and causing a contact issue.  I separated the wires and the problem stopped.  It’s a rev limiter that interferes with the ignition system.  

This could be your problem.

Checked it out and wires are good I couldn't do anything to make a connection between them... I've found one possible issue in the carburetor with the needle that comes in thru top... do you know where the clip came set at factory?

Had some time today to tear into the Phoenix and found this wasp nest completely blocking in air intake onto air box... I'm thinking this may have been a contributing factor...

Nice work on the bike. Is that gas filter going on the right direction ? There is an arrow on it indicating the direction of flow, If yes then to relocate it so it’s in a vertical position.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.

      Hey so i sold my 04 rubicon and wanted something new so i went to NC and bought a '13 scrambler 850XP LE EPS.  love it the only issues with it when i bought it were a leak in the front tire and the mice had chewed through one of the spark plug wires.  currently have a substitute hooking the chewed end to the ignition coil so itll run on both cylinders however im having an issue finding a replacement coil wire for it and was wondering if yall had any advice.  i need the longer of the two coil wires and i can only find the shorter one online.  will throw up some pics of it when i can
