How To Fix Your Polaris Sportsman When It Has No Spark




What do you think about this video?

06GMCDURAMAX: I have a issue with my 2003 sportsman 700. it cranks and if i spray brake cleaner in the carb it will run for 10 seconds then die! it has a new fuel tank thats full of fresh fuel. Fuel pump maybe??

knuckles710: great video brian. i have a 2000 polaris 335 and i would like to know where the fuel pump is . thank you hope to here from you.

Curt Simshauser: Very good!!

ezzyeggy: Havnt pulled the cover for the pullstart off but seems when I pull the cord out theres oil on it. Whats that from. Inside seal bad?

66kerekes: I have a 185 a bayou from1985,also no spark,any advice?

briansmobile1: Resistance and check for open circuit.

briansmobile1: Check the solenoid near the battery- if Ok check the circuit breakers up front under that panel below the headlight.

ezzyeggy: Do you have a vid on fixing a 2002 (that style) polaris 500 hub that seems to engage on its own. I have it tore down and seems really clean. Im gonna start with fresh fluid and see what happens..

mw21337haxor: Any idea shoot me a private message

briansmobile1: @CURBECK Thanks.

briansmobile1: Check your ignition coil.

myday247: @briansmobile1 mine has some black stuff like glue or something on the pull cord cover. like if it had a gasket. does yours have it???

briansmobile1: No gas? Could be a restriction. Try by-passing the air fuel system with some starting fluid. Timing is set on a chain and by the CDI box. They typically don't go bad. Usually the stator or ignitor go bad on these or the piston rings fail.

luvthesnow: Nice vid. Perfect timing as well. I'm working on an old Xplorer 400 and have to do the same thing. Where did you buy the pickup, or trigger coil? I noticed you cut the leads up close to the old one. How long are the leads on the replacement? Also, do you need to keep the finished length the same (as far as fitment goes, no extra wire drooping about)?

EX Rider: That gunk in stator doesnt mean its bad ours has gunk and works

briansmobile1: I am really excited to see you spelled 75% of that "sentence" correctly. When I saw no capitalization and the punctuation was missing, I was WORRIED for you buddy! The misspelled profanity was further sign for concern. I don't mean to be picky, but that's all I have to go on to represent you. I'm sure you're very smart and charming. I'd hate to misjudge you as a drunken uneducated moron with a computer. I might miss out on the charm and intellect you have to offer. = )

randell bryant: still not start ! i replaced the plug even put a little gas in the plug hole n returned the plug still not even a hint idk whate should i try next ?

briansmobile1: Do a compression test. The piston rings may be worn (common on 2 strokes). You have to have timing, air/fuel, compression, spark to run.

randell bryant: verry nice of you i have a polaris 400 4x4 automatic 2 stroke it was running fine just shut off n now it gets firer and gas but will not stare ,,any ideals ? i am a singel dad my 2 kids are driveing me insaine lol love the 4 wheller

briansmobile1: @ezzyeggy I don't- sorry man.

briansmobile1: Some times advancing the timing will cause it to run leaner/hotter.

Taylor Jackson: thanks for the help. it was a job that me and my dad did not think we could do and you saved us some money.thanks

devon fowler: You make it look so easy ! Lol Love your videos man!

briansmobile1: @142portland Check out the circuit breakers under the front hood. Look for melted wire/tape.

briansmobile1: @ezzyeggy Could be a number of things I suppose it depends how wet and what type of oil. I couldn't say from here.

mw21337haxor: I changed the stator and still have no spark ice tried 2 brand new plugs

randell bryant: i have done that i bought 2 plugs tryed both still wont start ! i evend put some gas in the plug hole i call it lol plug back in n still wont start its like out of time or not firering on the roght time HELP ! Thank you for any help or ideals u give

142portland: Great video and great timing i think. I have a question if you have time. Riding the other night, smelled burnung plastic/smell light then started to flicker along with the speedo and tail lights then failed. I think its a stator issue, do u have the specs to test it out or any other ideas what it might be. the wheeler did not stall out, and ran two miles dark to home.

Usernameinvalid16: hey brian, Sorry to bug you again haha. Anyways i have a (GY6-150 Engine) in my Gokart And it spits and Sputters a whole bunch and I fixed the pitting and Sputtering but Adjusting the Cam Shaft one tooth Back and now its got Tons more power and Runs Great, id think it would run Best with the Cam EXACT right? Im not sure what is the issue..

Chris07860: Excellent video Brian

briansmobile1: @myday247 Yes.

briansmobile1: @luvthesnow The best place to get them if they have the one you need in stock for Polaris..... is RMstator out of Canada. As for length I recommend lengthening the trigger coil wire a bit so you can route it better. This one was too tight and was getting chaffed harder than a nekid horseman running from the Mexican Federal Policias through Guadalajara in August. AIEEEEEE CHIHUAHUA!!!!

Brandon Williams: I already replaced the stater CPU and igniter? I get full power to my lights and everything else.

briansmobile1: I'd try replacing the plug. Those 2 strokes can have spark, but not start if the plug isn't up to snuff. Try that first.

Summer Perez: brandon i have an 01 sportsman 500 with the same prob. cranks over fine lights all work but no spark while cranking...when i click the start button to the off position i get one bright healthy spark...(but none while cranking) did you find a fix..i have not yet taken it apart.thanks,..Mike, New Hampshire

Usernameinvalid16: Makes sense. Thanks man!

briansmobile1: @Chris07860 Thanks ; ) Wasn't too sure about making this one.

briansmobile1: It's most likely a bad ignitor (showed in video) It's that little box that sits at 9 o'clock to the stator.

billy ward: are you freaken stupid

Chris07860: Well i'm glad you posted it I honestly like a lot of your videos I am in school now to be an auto technician. I like your videos because you go indepth in how to repair things. I want to get my ASE Master Tech Cert a lot of work but it will be worth it

briansmobile1: A person can be bleeding, but not be dead. A stator can have gunk and not be bad. However if you see a dead person, and they are covered in blood, you might posture that the bleeding had something to do with their demise.

briansmobile1: You're welcome!

briansmobile1: There's three things that can cause that. Bad computer, stator, or ignitor.

Brandon Williams: I have a 01 Polaris xpedition 425 no spark until I turn the key off quickly and I get one spark... Ne ideas? Thanks

randell bryant: is there anyway to set the timeing on it ? idk notta lol its getting lots of firer n comp is 125 geting gas not even a hint at all someone said the CD box is bad idk i call it a computer lol

briansmobile1: Get a power probe or circuit tester and a wire diagram or take it to someone with some training. Probable you have a bad connection at the battery about the back left wheel or a corroded connection at a circuit breaker (looks like a square tape ball) in front under the hood cover- under/behind the front rack.

Jackye Freeze: I have a Polaris Xplorer 300 (not sure what year but it looks just like the 1996 models I've seen). I bought it used about six years ago and it has served me well. I just went through a divorce and it has been sitting unused for at least 9 months. I had drained the fuel so I've put fresh gas and oil and went to change the spark plug and even though I've done it in the past, for the life of me, I can't find the crazy thing. Can't find any videos that show where it is, can you help?

briansmobile1: You're welcome!

briansmobile1: ignitor

MrSkiforlife: I have three polaris jetskis. None of them have spark. What is the common problem with polaris skis
