07 sportsman wont run without pumping throttle

Recommended Posts

After a rollover and breaking out the Speedo Gauge my machine starts and will not stay running nor will it idle. Speedo is removed as it is non repairable. I can pump the throttle as it is running and that is the only way it will stay running but will not rev up. I can spray gas into air cleaner intake when air cleaner is out and it will rev up. I pulled the injector out and made sure there was gas getting to fuel rail when pump comes on and there is. One person told me you need the Speedo on for it to run fine but I took one off my 800EFI and it still does same thing and the 800 runs fine without the speedo on it. Any advice??? You can not ride machine like this. Like machine isn't getting proper amount of fuel through the injector. I highly doubt injector is bad being only 300 miles in change on the machine. Please don't tell me adjust throttle cable. Any Legit idea's??

Double check you gauge and the pod that holds the gauge. Seem to remember hearing the pods can cause electrical problems after a roll over. Also do you have access to another gauge?

I tried another guage off 08 800 EFI and does the same thing. The 800 runs fine without guage. I have the whole pod off right now. Looked at wires and nothing is wrong.

Is the throtle cable still hooked up to the throttle positioning sensor?????? That is Throttle body setup, not to hard to knock something out wack. Sounds like the throttle position sensor is bad. That would be the next thing I would check.

It's still hooked up. When you squirt gas through intake machine runs fine. It's getting plenty of air just not any fuel. It's EFI so I'm wondering if something electric is holding it back??

Throttle position sensor.Would be my first guess, same set up as a car. I got on Ronnies mail order site and looked at the the diagrams of your EFI. Again my first guess would be throttle position sensor.

I agree, it sounds like a possible reason, just like on a car. I'm not familiar with the setup on that atv, but I would check that and whatever else there may be that is electrical and controls fuel flow. See if there is a fuel pump relay or injector relay, pressure regulator, etc.

TPS is fine. Machine is not getting enough fuel once it starts running. It's like something is cutting the fuel flow. I'm ready to fold.

How did you check the TPS????????????? Polaris has a computor that hooks up and will tell you what the problem is.

I pulled it off took a good look at it, swore at it and put it back in. I'm gonna get my buddy to come down with his and swap parts to figure it out.

Is yours also an 800? Or is it a 450, 500, or 700...

Sounds like it could be the TPS sensor but as you get higher in CC's you may have some other possible stuff going on.

Mine is a 500EFI. Haven't messed with it again yet. I'm disgusted with it.

I bet you it's the throttle position sensor or something inside that throttle body.

You should test that TPS with a volt meter....when you're not disgusted anymore. :wink:

Do you have the operational instructions on performing that test task? If so that would be great. I've never had to test one before so I'm not familiar with it. Sounds like you know what your doing.

I'm not sure what that model has, but usually there is a positive wire for power, and another wire sending the voltage back to adjust air fuel mixture, based on throttle position. Check the signal wire voltage for fluctuation while you move the throttle. This should give you an idea if it's working. If it's not and is shorted, it may be signaling for closed throttle.

That has an electric fuel pump. You may want to check fuel pressure or see if the pump is delivering fuel and not just making noise.

I checked pressure coming into fuel rail. It's perfect. You can see injector initially spraying fuel looking through throttle body as well, ruling out injector. If you find specifics on TPS testing let me know.

      Hello,
      I recently picked up an ‘07 KFX 700. All was going well, rode it about 40 miles, when it started bogging at low speeds. If I kept the revs higher, I was just fine. Also, a persistent issue since I picked it up is the fairly difficult start (but it is abnormally cold right now and the quad is jetted for the dunes at summertime).
      Regarding the complete lack of idle, I have to rev it a couple times to get it to idle after starting it, after which it’s 50/50 whether it remains idling. I don’t have low fuel, but all of this began after I rode it pretty hard and the radiator fan kicked in. Might be overheating, just wanted to hear your opinions.

      ok help so according the service manual, Idle Air Mix Screw (aka Pilot screw) should be initially set to 2.5 turns out from fully seated.

      If I do that the motor doesn't want to start or stay running...right now the pilot screw is probably somewhere near 5 turns out....I'll take the carb off tomorrow to count to know for sure.

      mind you the carb got a new float seat,float needle and various other components in the kit.

      To get the motor running I hard to turn the pilot screw out quite a bit, and turned the idle speed screw in quite a bit...I didn't hook up an inductive tach to know what it is idling at, but does sound about right.

      What should the idle speed adjustment screw initially be set at (the one that has the black cable sheath with a knob you can twist easily)?

      Is there a special tool to turn the idle/pilot mix screw whilst the carb is on the running motor? I am using a slotted screw driver bit (normally goes into a driver) by hand..makes it hard to turn the driver and hard to tell how many turns .

      I have a 2002 Suzuki LT-F500F, and am a first time atv  owner. I rode two wheel bikes for many years, and now, two months in to being a new at owner, am just not enamored with the thumb throttle, and I’m wondering if anyone has tried a conversion to a typical twist grip throttle as found on all motorcycles? If so, how do you like it?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?

      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!

      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!!
