99 Polaris Xplorer 400. Vapor lock?

Recommended Posts

So I’ve rebuilt this quad and the only issue is fuel delivery. The filter fills up then runs out of fuel then dies. I’m thinking that vapor lock is the cause. And here’s my reasoning. The fuel lines are supposed to be 3/8 are 5/16 on there and it looks to have a huge filter on there. I did blow out all the lines and checked the petcock as well as the screens in the tank. Sonic cleaned the carb and replaced all the jets and needle. Blew out the vent lines too. Any one else have thought?

It’s possible about the fuel line thickness but I don’t think it’s likely.  I would remove the fuel filter and run a direct line to the carb without the filter. Just to see how it runs.   The filter is directional so it should go on the line on the right direction, have you checked that also ?

Yes. When I was shooting air thru it it’s clear all the way to the carb. The carb is clear also. I took the cap off the tank just to rule that out too

I would pull the gas line off and replace with a direct line from tank to the carb w out the filter.  See what it does.   

It’s good to see you back on the forum brother ! @06kfx440 hope your feeling well.

It’s the same thing that happens with the filter. Runs great then dies. Ill show you guys what I’m talking about in a few minutes.

It’s awesome to be back. The quads took up some time. I have something else I’m working on too that will be custom and awesome.

I love finding new things that break. Lol. The magnets on the flywheel came off. But it’s a simple fix. Gorilla glue and clamps

Yeah. Smaller lines and filter fixed it. But now it’s a ping at low idle and goes away when you rev it. It’s all new besides the dome. I don’t suspect piston slap. Give me a text frank. New phone.

      I have an 05 King Quad 700 that has in the past had to have the stator replaced twice.  For the past six months it has been down hard as I cannot get it to fire.  I have replaced the coil (which is the code that came up) and now I have a friend replacing the stator.  I want to see if the new stator does the trick.  Drain the old fuel, and replace with 100% Ethanol free fuel, and see if that does the trick.  The local Suziki dealer will not work on it as it is over 10 years old.  So the nearest dealer is 90 miles away.  The last thing I can do after that (provided the other fixes do not work) is replace the ECM/ECU.  I also read that there was a recall on the ECM/ECU, so I need to check on that.  All of the grounding has been checked, so if anyone has an idea, I would greatly appreciate the insight.
       
      Kindly,

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?
