1995 Polaris Magnum 425 4x4 Carb Problems

Recommended Posts

I've got a 1995 Polaris Magnum 425 4x4. When I rev it up and let off the gas and then rev it up before it gets back to idle it bogs down pretty bad. It does not idle very long at all before it dies. I've changed the spark plug and cleaned the carburetor 3 or 4 times and soaked it, rinsed it and blew out all passages with compressed air and still have same problem when I put everything back together. Also, a few minutes after I crank the 4 wheeler, gas starts coming out of the drain at the bottom of the carburetor with a fast drip. I thought the gas might have been somehow going through/around the drain screw so I bought a new drain screw and it's still dripping. After I kill it, gas still leaks until I shut fuel line off. Was also wondering if any parts off a 2000 Polaris Scrambler 500 would fit on the 95 magnum. Any information or advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Kyle,,,,your flooding out due to either a bad needle and seat assembly and/or your float is laying too high,,,,,,,,turn your carb upside down and make sure your float mount is flat level with the carb half,,,,,, even alittle down,if thats good you need to change thr needle and seat ass.a small wear ring on the needle is all it takes to stick,,,ebay is cheap,,,,,,,,,,,

Hi all,

Hopefully you actually do have carb problems cuz the earlier fourstroke polaris's were prone to eating camshafts, I'm working on 2 of them right now and they were both doing the same thing. Typically the exaust lobe fails.(wears badly) Again hopefully it is the carb.

good luck

Did Polaris do anything to fix the cam problem? I have this issue also, the exhaust lobe is gone. It does have 8000 miles on the meter, so I guess that is not to bad.

i was told by polaris to run a thinner 40 weight oil so it can get up to the cam easier. i was running 10-w40 but now i run 0w40 full synthetic. if it works or not i do not know. i have 4000 miles on my machine and never touched the engine. all i have done is changed the oil 3 times a year whether it needed it or not.

      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!

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      Quad starts fine and revs fine in my back yard. On a test ride it falters badly. No power. I have cleaned and rebuilt the carb, cleaned the fuel tank, installed new fuel filter, changed fuel line and cleaned the air filter. Any help would be appreciated.

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
