2004 Polaris Magnum 330 - Carb Issues

Recommended Posts

Carb issues help?

I just rebuilt the carb on my '04 Magnum 330. It's a Mikuni 34mm CV carb.

I got the rebuild kit from my local Polaris dealer. I also got 8' of 1/4" fuel line and a new in-line filter. I drained/cleaned the fuel tank and the fuel is now for the lawn mower. All of the fuel lines were replaced from the tank to the petcock, to the fuel pump, and to the carb. I even replaced the vacuum line from the carb to the fuel pump. New in-line filters installed. Fresh fuel in the tank.

The carb kit had replacement parts for everything except the pilot screw/needle. I checked the float settings when I rebuilt it. I clipped the needle at 3 of 5, just like when I tore it down (factory setting). I cleaned the pilot screw, and reinstalled to two turns out from bottom.

I was able to get it started w/o any problems, and it idles perfect (got lucky). But I haven't adjusted the pilot screw.

Now my problem. I start up, closed the choke, and idles fine. BUT, if I try to give it gas it starts to stumble. I tried to give it wide open throttle, and it died. I can restart it and it runs fine at idle. I haven't tried driving it yet since I still have the front end tore apart.

Any thoughts? I can get to the needle easy enough, but it's clipped at the same setting as I tore it apart at, and where it's been running fine since I bought it.

Thanks in advance,

Wayne

Go to the Polaris ATV forum look for the sticky notes in regard to a 2004 Polaris Magnum 330 service manual. That manual might tell you how to adjust the pilot screw and much more. However if it doesn't many Polaris delaers may answer that question for you for free, it never hurts to ask. Hope This Helps, Whip

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      I have a 2017 1000s. Should I be worried that it will catch fire?
