polaris Engine issues!!

Recommended Posts

Ok I just installed a new motor (My old one blew up piston skirt shattered) I installed everything correctlt..I think! I got it running tonight with no issues it started right up with no issues. I let it idle for about 5 minutes just to let it heat up check fluids etc. I shut it off a few times and it started back up with no issues. So im standing there and all of a sudden it goes wide open so I shut the key off....it still ran, turned of the on\off switch...still wide open running!!!! So i figure let me yank the plug wire...I did and made sure there was no arc and it was far away to not spark.....still wide open running!!!!! so in a last effort I unscrewed the top of the carb that houses the throtle assy and ripped it out and it finally shut off......WHAT THE $%$%$#% happened!!! has anyone ever heard of this ??? there are no kinks in the wires the throttle works fine as far as the cables go but im afraid to try and start it again without someone giving me asvice on this or if they ever heard of this! HELP!!! Ive been working on this thing for over 2 mos!! I just want to get it running correctly!

You disconnected the plug wire while it was running? No spark and it still ran wide open? Maybe it was igniting on compression at that point similar to what deasels do...but it would really have to be high compression...weird. You have a possessed motor....:confused: Where are you at now with it? Carb off? You gonna try it again?

I was thinking air leak also.get the old can carb cleaner out start it and spray around intake and head if it doesnt stop by then spray it into the carb and that should shut her off if still reving to moon.they rev up hi when you forget to turn gas on and its starving for fuel too. but im the only one that forgets to turn fuel on haha.

      While riding my Quadzilla XLC 500 I was cruising along about 60 mph then opened it up, but once I hit 70-75 mph it died on me so I rolled to a stop and it wouldn't start for about 20-30 seconds. I then noticed the Temp light occasionally flashes on but its so quick you wouldn't notice in the day so not sure how long its been happening. The engine has started pinging when I accelerate which can be caused by many things so I drained the fuel and replaced with hi octane, fitted a new spark plug, adjusted the little washer on the high jet in the carb twice to make it run more lean which made no difference.  I tested the thermostat which opens at the correct temperature, I removed the radiator cap and started the engine and no bubbles were showing and the oil is on maximum and very clean as I have not long serviced it.
      The last time I took it out I went 14 miles and the coolant in the bottle has dropped about 1/2".
      I am now leaning towards a head gasket and have purchased a full gasket kit but was wondering if there's anything else it could be before taking the engine apart.

      Hi, I have one of the very first Rincons. Recently after sitting for a while, a few months, it will start but not idle.
      I took the carb off and cleaned the jets, but they seemed clean. I have tried adjusting the throttle stop idle but it still stalls.
      I absolutely do not like CV carbs and I don't know much about them, but what else could this be? If not clogged jets there's so many hoses and tubes on this thing and wires and sensors I don't know where to begin.

      I have a 1994 big bear and I am starting to have issues starting. I put in a new starter and selnoid as the at stopped starting with the electrical but will still start with the pull cord. Where and what now should I be looking at to check? If I turn key to on and the switch to on then hit the start button, the bike clicks and then nothing. Lights still work but no response to the starter. Stumped now. Any help would be greAt.

      I have an unknown year Timberwolf. I have had to replace/repair some back yard wiring issues. With the wiring fixed, I compared to my other Timberwolf quads, I have found a problem. Starter is always running. I can only get it to stop by removing the positive lead from the battery.

      Hi Guys,
      I have a small Sled Dog business and I train up to 14 Huskies pulling a Yamaha Grizzly 550, that is quite a lot of Horse (Dog) power. Sometimes in order to make the ride smoother for Dogs and us we ride in Neutral but on a few occasions I have noticed that the right hand (front) brake seems to loose pressure and does not brake at all. Is there a particular reason for this ? Is it a fault or is it something to do with us riding in neutral, I only use the ATV in this way a few months a year before the snow comes but I am sure I recall the same thing happening last season.
      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated because I am a far way from being a mechanic.....
      Have a super day and thank you all.

      Can I use an old snowblower engine in my 90cc quad? The old one blew up. 
      Thanks for the help.
