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

Fuel problem fixed ?

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 wanted to share an experience and a fix.
      Headed out was following a pole line, was looking for a cross track that may take me to this speckle trout looking spot on a creek.  All paths and semi paths... failed.  Second objective was to reach a speckle trout lake that has been recently stocked... followed 1 trail to dead end, followed second trail to dead end.... while investigating options on foot and the quad idling it died.
       
      It wouldn't start.  eventually it did... and when it did … it was essentially a pinned idle.  activating the throttle did seem to speed it up but it wouldn't knock out of the racing idle.  couldn't put it in gear at that idle speed.  got towed out.
      when I first got the quad, I ran it off a trail and buried it pretty good in the soft snow... eventually winched out.  It wouldn't start.  eventually did and it was fast idling.  not as fast as this last time. but still fast.  it eventually seemed to settle and I got it in gear and by the time I was back to the truck was acting ok.  chalked it up to the bike being at a bad angle in the snow.
      My investigation last year lead to the throttle position sensor TPS.  how to jumper the diag block to see the sensor position on the display,.  I focused on this nearly sure it was a detuned sensor or broken sensor again this time.
       
      I tore down the front plastic and stuck my head into the TPS area to see what I could see.  What I found was that the throttle body assembly had actually come out of the mounting area (not sure what it is called).  the ring clamp was loose I could move it easily.  Hopeful, I tore down the air intake assembly above it (air filter...etc) removed a sensor clip and a hose.
      I backed off the clamp some more and was able to reseat the throttle body assembly.  put some blue lock tite on the clamp screw.  When I was cleaning off the air intake assembly to ensure I dropped nothing down the intake, I noticed the underside of the air intake "box" also had a clamp.  this screw was completely missing.
      I went to the hardware store, bought a metric replacement (brought clamp with me), seated the assembly, settled the clamp blue lock tite that as well... 
       
      quad fired right up, idled normal, idled up without hesitation and dropped right back off.  Cost of solution $3.87 CND for a pack of 5 metric screws.  moral of my story was don't assume an idle issue is a throttle position sensor problem... there are a number of other factors including air pressure, which I believe was my issue.

      Im new to the forum and the quad I just got. I want to change oil in in. Its almost impossible to find anything on-line. I know it takes 10w40 and know the oil filter location. What oil should I use? Is there a cross reference for oil filter. The closest dealer to me is an hour away. I have NAPA close and like the WIX or Napa gold filters. Also is where can I get a Manuel for it? Thanks

      Take a look at this.  Curious about everyone’s input.it looks pretty good.   We all have this common problem of accessing the air fuel mixture screws.    
      The reviews look pretty good.  I may order one just to see how it works out.

      They also have other types that will work on this site.

      About 6 months ago I had a new fuel pump, ECM, stator and heaven only knows what else installed on my 05 King Quad.  It has been running great until the other day when I went to get it off the trailer, and it would not start.  Pulled the plug, and it was a little dirty, but not bad, but I put a new one in just for good measure.  Still would not start.  Pulled the fuel line connector underneath and turned on the switch and fuel was coming out, but with little to no pressure.  I turned the switch off and on multiple times to fill up a water bottle with fuel, and the fuel was good.  As it turns out, the fuel pump is out of warranty (go figure).  So, I'm going to put a pressure gauge on it tomorrow and see what it is pumping.  Is there anything else I can check?
      Many thanks,
