1993 Polaris Sportsman 400 not running

Recommended Posts

I recently traded for an old polaris 400 for one of my kids. I have little experience with Polaris quads (I'm used to Yamaha) and the guy told me that he thought the last time he tried to work on it, it didn't have a spark. Any suggestions on where to start with this thing? I haven't tried anything yet but it hasn't ran in 2 years.

The first thing I would check is the spark plug. It is best to start with the most simple things. Check the coil wire, the plug boot, and the connection between the two. Then I would check the key switch and kill switch, you need to make sure that power is getting to the ignition. After that I would get a manual and a multimeter and start testing all the ignition components, coil, stator, CDI and pickup.

      Hello All,
      I have multiple Yamaha Timberwolfs, and I'm rebuilding a 92. I would like to replace the Ball Joints on the control arms. Does anyone know where I can purchase them? I don't want to purchase entire control arm. Ebay only has upper ball joints (Funny I don't see Upper Ball Joints, I have struts) and Cheap Cycle Parts, Partzilla and others don't even show the part number for the lower ball joint. There has to be something out there, these are just pressed in ball joints with castle nut and cotter pin.
      Please help cross reference. I have another Timberwolf I want to rebuild.

      Hello everyone! I recently purchased this quad for a mere 300.00 and it is pretty clean for the year. I bought it from a guy who bought it in a storage unit. He didn’t know anything about it. I got it home and noticed it did not have an ignition coil for the spark plug. I bought the ignition coil, a new battery, new CDI box, new starter relay, new safety neutral relay, new carb and so on... I got it to turn over, but when I pull the plug and check for spark I have nothing.. it has a non factory starter button that works when I push it and turns the engine over no matter if the key or stop switch is on or off..not sure what that’s all about, but it does turn over..just no spark at the plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
