1994 Polaris Sportsman 400 4x4 - Does Not Run

Recommended Posts

I recently got a 94 Polaris sportsman 400 4x4 from a family member. It just quit on him and has not run in 5 months. I put new fuel in, cleaned the carb, new plug. There's fuel getting to it and a good spark but it will not fire. It will turn over but will not start and I'm lost. Please help. :)

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! Fuels and spark are the first things that I would check and it sounds like you have both. It might be a choke issue. Or it may still be a carb related issue. I would try spraying starting fluid into the intake and see if it catches, if it does, it's not getting fuel.

* Moved thread to Polaris forum and added year, make, model, and issue to thread title.

Thanks Ajmboy. Its running now, a little rough but running. I'm fairly sure the transmission is gone. It's not staying in gear, just pops out right away so now I'm going to take it apart and see what's up.

      I have a 1997 Polaris Sportsman 500 4x4 that recently started bogging. Was riding down a road and all of a sudden started bogging. I tore the carburetor off, cleaned the jets , checked if there was spark. I'm pretty much out of ideas. After cleaning the carburetor, put it back on an now it wont start. Any ideas?
