2001 polaris trailblazer 250 wont idle

Recommended Posts

I got a big problem. Bike will crank only with the throttle pinned all the way but wont rev it just kinda bogs and as soon you start to let off it dies. The bike was running fine prior to this. Its been sitting about a month in the shed. Its getting gas, has fire, 105 psi. This is my wife's bike and she does not ride it anymore so I was getting it out to clean and sell but now this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :bangheadc:

You may be getting fuel, just not enough. First try tapping on the side of the float bowl with the handle of a screwdriver, you may just have a stuck float. Then try draining the tank and the carb, start with fresh gas. Then make sure the fuel petcock and fuel lines are clean and clear. Next you may want to take the carb completely apart and clean everything. I believe that is a 2-stroke, so while the carb is off, check the reeds. If none of these things help, check your flywheel key and test your ignition components, coil, CDI, stator, plug and wire. Also, 105 psi is pretty low, so that is not helping things any.
