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??

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.

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.

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.

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.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      Hi I have been given a lakota quad which has been sat in a garage for 6 years was aware it might need a lot of work......I have changed the oil and filter new spark plug and new battery got it fired up all good. Problem is it seems to be idling really fast so wontered whether the carb would also need taking off and cleaning

      I was thinking its bad gas but it wont run for longer period even using starting fluid, so I'm thinking fuel starved. Injector? I heard the fuel filter is built into the fuel pump, which sounds like a terrible idea. I have read a few reviews saying its a common symptom of a plugged injector. I have my air intake box off and beneath it is the injector I think. But what do I need to remove to get to it? I dont want to just start pulling stuff off the top of the motor. 
      Couldnt locate a you tube vid that actually shows an injector removal.
      Any help out there.

      Anyone ever try this method for removing a tire from the rim? I tried the bottle jack method, but the jack kept slipping down the tire.
      This option seems to focus the pressure right at the bead, but I'm wondering if there are other options that you've had success with.

      My Rancher cranks right up and runs great for a while and then it will suddenly sputter out and die. It usually cranks right back up and again runs great for a while and then same thing. Yesterday it got to where it acted like it wasn't going to crank back up a few time but eventually did. Any suggestions??
