Recommended Posts

We just got a Polaris 500 Predator yesterday, and today it started missing really bad, and there was a significant amount of oil in the air filter box. No smoke is coming out of the exhaust. Please help as to what you think it might be!!!

OK, we found out what it was...We need a new air filter:confused: We ran it without it for a few minutes up the road without the air filter, and it ran like a scalded dog, which is more like it.:yes:

Hey guys, sorry it took so long to respond. It was a stock filter, but now we have a K&N. The oil in the airbox was because the motor oil was over full, and the overflow tube goes to the airbox. Thanks for all the comments anyway!:wink:

    • Polaris Sportsman 450 headlight mod

      I am trying to figure out a way to make my high beam include the 2 front lights that come on in low beam mode. As it sits now I need to use the low beam to see the trail in front of me but can't see far ahead. On high beam I can see ahead but miss most of the trail right in front of me. Does anyone know of a kit that would mate the two front lights to the main headlight on high beam ?

    • 2005 Polaris Trail Blazer 250 won't start

      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?

    • 97 Polaris sportsman 500 runs about 10 sec then dies

      Hello, Everyone first time here, I appreciate this opportunity, I have a 97 polaris sportsman 500 that I just acquired, been sitting awhile ,would not turn over with a new battery, replaced the starter, got it to turn over, but no fire, replaced the coil, cdi box, new spark plug, spark plug wire and boot, still no fire, So I changed out the stator, boom I have Fire, Carburetor was in bad shape ,so I installed a new carburetor, a new fuel pump and filter and all new hoses, and before I tried to start it I cleaned the fuel tank, well here we go, It started right up idled like a brand new one, Idled for about 10 seconds and died, fired right back up idled great and revved up great, but in 10 seconds it died, fired right back up, this time I held the throttle about half throttle, and it kept running, but when I let off it died, so I then adjusted the throttle cable from all the way tight to all the way loose, and vise versa, still the same thing, Please somebody help, cause I'm bout to give it the HAMMER TEST.
