Question about Polaris 2004 Sportsman 500 H.O
It runs fine until it gets hot and then it cuts off and back fires. if you wait a little while it will crqnk up anf run fine until it gets hot again. it ildes fine i have sprayed some crab cleaner in it while running but no help.
Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.
For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.
