Ive check all fuses as well as the fusable ling which was fine until I screwed with it now need to buy another as have it wired not so safe.I handy but now have copd which takes away the brain power some.Any help would sure be appreciated
I've had this machine for 2ish years, has ran great up until winter. Sometime during then, I managed to break the exhaust right before the muffler. The summer before it had a hard time idling, but we fixed it by cleaning the carb, and messing with idle. Near the end of last year, the only way for it to fire was the have full choke, and full throttle, and the engine bogged down and you had to keep on throttle for 25mins. Over winter, the throttle had dislocated, and I got it back in place. We got it running, and all was good. Spring came along, and now it doesn't start at all. A fluid is coming out of the exhaust, and I'm told it could be water from over winter. I checked the airbox, and the air filter isn't for this quad, it also is barely sucking air. There appears to be little to no compression, based on this. I'm pretty sure the engine is flooded, as the spark plug produces a spark, but is oxidized. I don't know how the previous owner treated it, or when it's last oil change was. A bolt on the engine has either oil or gas seeping through it,abd was loose. I tightened it and it consisted. The engine is basically positioned in the rear, and it needs a good clean, I don't have a pressure washer, so I can get the built on dirt off. any recommendations on how to get the beast started again?

Hey, how's it going?
I'm a new member looking to get some advice before I go to check out a '14 Sportsman 800. I wanted to get input from you guys that have experience with Polaris machines. I've been riding my whole life, dirt bikes and atvs... Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, but never Polaris. I'm looking for advice on what I should be looking for, any common issues, really any general advice. I couldn't find many reviews of the Sportsman 800 online, so and general reviews on quality/reliability would be great too.
A little info on the machine.
-2014 800 EFI
-640 miles, 77hrs.
-Asking price is $5500
Couple add ons: (nothing major)
-Aftermarket wheels with Maxxis tires
-Front and rear brush bumpers
Probably going to see it in the next couple days. I'll make sure to check out all the basics... Fluids, front end, tires, suspension etc. Plus anything else you guys recommend.
Thanks for any advice on advance!

Yesterday I was buying a 2 large bags of Purina dog
chow at Wal-Mart, for
my dogs Winston, Chief, Gus, and Maximus. I was
about to check out when a
woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
What did she think, that I had an elephant?
Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I told
her that no, I didn't have
a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet
again, although I probably
shouldn't because I ended up in the hospital last
time. On the bright side
though, I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an
intensive care ward with
tubes coming out of every hole in my body and IVs
in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet
and that the way that it
works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets
and simply eat one or two
every time you feel hungry and that the food is
nutritionally complete so
I was going to try it again. (I have to mention
here that practically everyone in
the line was enthralled with my story by now.)
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive
care because the dog food
had poisoned me. I told her no; I had stopped in
the middle of the
parking lot to lick my butt and a car hit me.
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a
heart attack, he was
laughing so hard!
WAL-MART won't let me shop there anymore.
