2007 Polaris Sportsman 700 not firing

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Polaris 700 Sportsman. Bike was running fine but started sputering before the last time I parked it. Now the bike will not start. The bike turns over and is getting plenty of fuel. It acts like the spark plug is not firing. I have replaced the spark plug and spark plug wire but still it acts like it is not firing and will not start.

I am now down to checking the spark plug coil, CDI, Stator, and the trigger on the stator.

Any ideas or suggestions that can point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.:wacko:

To be sure that you aren't getting spark, take the plug out, connect it to the boot and ground the plug to the motor. Crank the motor over to check for spark. I think you are probably right, but it is best to be sure. If it is indeed lack of spark that is your problem, then you have are on the right track, I would, however, check the kill switch and key switch and all connections first. You want to rule out the simplest and cheapest problems before you start spending money on more expensive parts.

BTW, JB68, Ricky Stator is a brand name, they make aftermarket ignition products and even other hard parts like a-arms and such.

      Does anybody know how to determine which of the 2 key blanks fits my ATV. I have called several dealers, and Polaris and nobody seems to know which key fits which ATV. I thought with the ViN number they could look it up, but apparently not. I hate to spend the money at Polaris for a key blank and then pay a locksmith to cut it, but the locksmiths around me don't have the Polaris keys in stock. I find them on Amazon and places, but I can't tell which key blank is right for my ATV. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hello I'm new here and not sure on where this should be posted but here goes. I have a 2007 Kawasaki 360 4x4, it started to make a small knocking sound and few weeks ago. I checked all the normal things and didn't find anything. I just used it around the house as my yard machine, no real heavy loads or stress on it. And it ran fine with no problems. Well one day I went to roll my yard with my roller that i filled with sand. It put the 4wheeler under a load for the first time, well it ran fine for about 20 mins then i stopped to do something and it started but there was nothing there. It would not rev up enough to engage the belt drive and the knock got a lot louder. Sounds like the knock is coming from the top end. And ideas in where to start. I have worked on some stuff and mechanically inclined just never tore into an engine before.

      Just got a 2019 570 a few weeks ago, haven’t got much seat time yet but I’m loving it! I’m not new to riding but new to Polaris. I’ve had a few 4wheeler’s over the years, including a Yamaha kodiak 450 and later a Honda rancher 420.

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      I have a 2017 Sportsman 570 SP with a power steering issue. Dealer tells me my machine is one that is not covered by recall and offers no help other than bring it in they will look at it. Any ideas?
