'96 425 4x4 magnum, major issues!

Recommended Posts

bought a non-running 425 magnum from a friend. has not been running for 2 years. last it ran the exhaust pipe got cherry red... hot enuf to partially melt the heat shield. engine was turned off and allowed to cool. wouldn't re-start. new spark plug didn't help. haven't tried much to fix it yet... looking for a good starting point.

ebay has carb kits for around 35.00 give or take. I have to swap out cams on the 425 and 500 often but that wouldnt make it hot but somthing else to check. If you pull the valve cover and spark plug kick the motor over and the rockers should be raising the same height the front rocker is the exhaust and thats the one that goes and obvious when its worn out.

Good luck Todd Polarisatvrepair.com

      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!

      Hi I just got an Polaris sportsman 500 4x4 ATV the other day. I got it real cheap but I started to go into it because it didn't have compression so I bought a new piston and ring kit for it and installed it, but now when I try to start it all it does is shoot fire out the exhaust or the intake of the carburetor. And a timing is top dead center.;I think I can't really tell another way if it is or not. when I put it together I made sure to piston was on top and the cam lobes where facing down where are the cam sprocket is facing up. It has gas and spark. It did start a couple minutes ago but it didn't stay running and now it won't start. Do you think the valve need to be adjusted more to close better?I'm fixing to try that out and if that don't work what is the problem? Also I made sure everything was together good and right and change the oil and changed out the radiator fluid.
