Help!!!!! Polaris sportsman 90 won't go foward but goes in reverse


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this forum and am in desperate need of help. I recently purchased a 05 polaris sportsman 90. The quads motor runs great. The quad will not accelerate forward. If it does its slow and will eventually pick up speed and then runs unbelievable. It has great power and torque in reverse but couldn't go over a twig in forward. I'm lost, any help would be greatly appreciated. The belt is in good condition and the and drained the trans oil and there is no metal shavings

I took the gear box apart and found no issues. I threw the atv back on the trailer and pulled it 550 miles home where I took the belt cover off and again found no issues. I put it back together and miraculously it worked fine and has ever since. I have no clue what I did to resolve. Wish I could provide a better answer.

Ok well thanks for your feedback I'll keep playing with it.

Did anyone ever solve this? I have a 90 doing the same thing. Runs good in neutral, perfect in reverse but I have to push it to get it to start moving in forward. No restrictions, it pushes smoothly

This is an older topic, I would start a new topic on your issue in the polaris atv forum.

      When the machine sits a few days I have a week/dead battery.
      What I have found,
      1. There is a group of four smaller gauge wires connected to the positive side of the battery. One of these is a blue wire, with the key off there is a .5amp draw on this wire.
      2. When I pull the EFI relay it is warm and the .5amp draw stops.
      3. I can reinstall the relay and the draw does not return until the key is turned back on.
      4. Swapping the relay with another does not change the condition.
      5. Turning the engine kill switch to stop does not kill the draw.

      I am assuming that when the key is turned off the EFI relay should relax, but is not.
      Does/should the key to off remove the control power for the relay, and therefor relax, or does the ECM control this relay?

      Thanks for any help.

      Hi Everyone,
      I recently purchased a 2005 50cc Polaris Predator for my granddaughter.
      The wiring is a mess. most of it appears to be jumpered out (twisted together).
      I installed a new carburetor. The gas tank was cracked so I found another one on ebay and got that installed. There is no air filter box. I ordered another one but, it has not arrived yet.
      I did get it cranked with the kick start. But, it idles too fast and when you give it any throttle the motor dies off. The more throttle you give it the faster it dies off. It is very hard to start when it has not been running for a while. However, once it has warmed up, it starts on the first kick every time after that.
      I am looking for a little assistance in getting it running better and also a wiring diagram and service manual if possible.
      Thanks in advance....

      The stock driver seat cushion is separated at a seam. I took the seat apart and found that the material has torn and cannot be re-stiched. I'm trying to find a replacement seat. Any suggestions? Hoping for a used seat but couldn't find one on Ebay.
