05 sportsman lacks power

Recommended Posts

While out on the trial today, I was helping another rider get unstruck and when i was done, my day was over. See the entire electrical system seems to have craped out on me. When i look in the owners manual it says to reset the circuit breaker but thats my prob, where the heck is the thing to reset? And if it is not the breaker what else could it be. Thank for any help anyone can give.

      Have a 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700 that only has 34mi. on a carb & ring job.
      Cut the gas off today to drain carb.Now engine will not idle.If I open throttle will run,but let off & will cut off.Can screw idle in with no change.
      What happened? Why did this happen when fuel ran out?
      Please help me,my ATV is a daily driver.
      Please help!!

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!
