96 polaris carb.grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Recommended Posts

Just put a new carb on my 96 magnum 2 weeks ago and the thing isnt right.. .well when left n full choke it idles but when giving gas stalls...but when i take the seat off and put my hand somewhat over the intake snorkle i call it...n giving throttle it runs ok..after it warms up it will stay idleing and sounds good...but very doggie from 1/4 to full throttle....how do i adjust this? I took the top cover off and moved the needle valve washer down 2 notches but didnt help..Is ther a ait adjustment screw anywheres? about ready to sink it....

they made 3 different carbs for the older polaris machines .. 2 of them had airfuel mix screws and 1 did not .. if yours does not have it then you can adjust it some what with jets .. but if you can find a used carb that has the adjustment screw if yours dosent it would be alot easyer ... another thin that can be causing the prob if your machine is 2stroke is the reed valves might not be closing all the way and need replaced ... hope this helps ...

mine is a 4 stroke..and there is nothing on the out side of it that i can see to adjust..there is a small screw on the underside of it that is counter sunk up n

the screw on the underside is the drain for the carb ... they bught some really cheap carbs and used then on the first couple years of the 4strokes ...the best thing would be to take it off and clean it really good and then when u put it back on make shure it dosent have any leaking of air between the carb and motor ..

      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?
