2007 Polaris Phoniex 200

Recommended Posts



A ring set from polarispartshouse.com is about $30.

I'd say at least a few hundred, to make it cheaper you could remove the engine from the frame and take that in which would lower their labor charges. I did it on a 110cc Chinese atv and it took me about 2 hours including taking the engine off the atv, but actually replacing the rings only took about 30-45 minutes. Good luck man

no.... all i did was remove the top end. cylinder head and the middle part. chain guides and put back from a polaris page. i mean it starts and drives just a really bad knocking nose. i even did an oul change and put 41 oz like polaris say

is it like a heavy knock like a crank bearing or sorta a ping like a valve? can you feel the engine and kind of tell if it's top or bottom end?

the jumping forward and backwards might be a belt ...

there are a few polaris guys on here that might have a better idea, wylde1 and polarisrich i know off hand have them and do lots of work on their own ... maybe send them a message to look at the thread you posted ...

as dumb as this sounds,,,it was something I overlooked when I did my first piston job......make sure you replaced the gaskets with new ones, tighten the bolts down to spec (I had an air leak from not doing this correctly and my bike was over-revving and lunging forward) and check the intake for leaks......also, check your engine mounting bolts...Good luck!:wink:

hopefully you have a manual to go by for the tightening sequence and torque specs:yes: On mine, it was a pia to get to the left side head bolts cuz of the frame tube being in the way..had to use an open end wrench and turn it tiny bits at a time...it was a real learning experience, but now I know:wink:

I trick I use for finding air leaks is to spray a little carb cleaner around anywhere the air could be leaking. It will get sucked into the leak and you will know right away.

If two dealers are saying the same thing that would be a good starting place. Are you gonna take it apart or have one of them do it?

      How do I replace the pinion clutch shaft in a 1987 Suzuki LT230 quadrunner? It starts up on the first kick but when I put it in gear it wants to kick up. I can give it gas and put it in gear but my clutch lever isn’t doing anything. SOS

      This bike has a straight axle that is moving horizontally in the housing in both directions about 2 inches. Has anyone had the same issue if so what did it take to repair it?
      Thanks..

      I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      I'm trying to put together a 3 night (Mon-Thurs) little get away and need some help finding a good location. Here's what I'm looking for...
      1) 2 days worth of easy mostly non-technical ATV trail riding (w/ passenger) with good look outs.
      2) Nearby camping with facilities that's not too crowded.
      3) Rental cabins close to the trail head.
      The first ATV park I know of is Black Mountain in Evarts KY. Lots of trails but I suspect they may lean more toward the technical side. Not sure about the cabin or camping situations in the area.
      The second is Ride Royal Blue just off I75 in Pioneer, TN. Good easy trails and cabins, but the camping situations I'm not too sure about.
      So...can anybody tell me about more locations w/in say 200 miles of Lex, KY that might be toward what I'm looking for?
