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:

      Does anyone have an online manual for a 1991 Polaris Trailboss 250? Or, if they could tell me where the fuel shutoff valve is, that would be even better. Thanks!

      Neighbor dropped off his 2010 Ranger 400 HO. Said it was missing and backfiring. I replaced the plug as it was carboned up (kids use the side x side for chores and it is only idled around yard) Unit ran great, sent back home and it ran great for about 5 hours of run time and then it wouldn't start. He brought it back and I changed the plug again and it would start but would not run great. Pull plug and it was really wet. I suspect the carb needs cleaning and that is the direction I plan on going unless someone else knows anything about these units. ( I have never worked on one of these).
      If you know of something else I should check let me know.
      Also I am looking for a service manual for this unit.
      Thanks
