I`m not familiar with this machine but off hand sounds like timing or valve adjustment problem. Does it give you any fault codes? Are you the original owner?

You need to check to see if its getting fire. Pull your spark plug and put the plug wire back on the plug if you can place it close to a metal part of the quad turn it over and see if you have spark you should see a spark from the plug. Make sure the ticking is not from it being low on oil. Do you know if it over heated? Do you know how many hours is on the quad?

      Greetings
      I have a 98 Polaris Magnum 425. Runs GREAT for 10 minutes then starts to load up (sounds rich) and looses power. Final;ly just stalls out on idle. If it sits 20 minutes will run again.

      replaced fuel, added fuel treatment (seafoam), Replaced plug (carbon fouled), plug wires, air and fuel filter, checked all fuel and vac hoses, REPLACED carb with new. Still no good. Just ordered a coil, not sure if that will help
      Note: both the new and old carb only had the idel adjuster screw - cant find the jet adjustments or air/fuel mix screws so I cannot say how they are set.

      Looking for ideas short of spending big $$ on Polaris service

      HELP?????

      Thanks

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a Kawasaki bayou 220 that won’t start I don’t know if it has something to do with the electrical wires but when I put the screwdriver on both bolts of the relay it wants to crank but can’t and there’s a missing piece I think it’s another relay that has 6 wires going into it

      Hi I don’t know much about quads this is my first one have a 2006 Suzuki ltz400 when I got it they told me that is has a 440 bore kit and a hot cam, but the throttle has to pushed and pumped to get it started, so I cleaned the carb and it is running good now but the throttle still has to be pushed and pumped to get it started the choke axe like it does not work and it bogs down in reverse. Does anyone have any advice?
