I have a 1989 polaris indy 400. When i pour a little gas in the carbs to make it start it starts right up and then after it burns the gas i pour in there it just dies. I cleaned the carbs so what could it be?

i cleaned the fuel pump and checked all the fuel lines. I can see fuel flowing through the lines into the carburetor. Would it be because the gas is no good. I just bought the snowmobile today and the guy told me he just barely put gas in it but i dont know if he put good gas.

sorry, but you bought a sled that you haven't even seen run?
i would try putting a little more good fuel into the gas tank first off.

Fuel filter is clogged? are the rubber gasket boots on the carbs cracked baldy? Take the spark plugs out and pull the sled over a few times, does gas shoot out of the cylinders?
