I have been unable to locate the fuel shutoff on my Polaris 96 Indy RXL Indy 650. The owners manual tells me to turn it off before trailering, do I really need to do that on an EFI sled? Does this shutoff really exist?
Yes, it does. It's a little red lever that should be located next to your oil bottle. Sometimes it's tucked away , just look around on the right side of your sled there & you'll see it. If you still can't locate it, follow your fuel lines from the engine back & you'll find it.
when shutting off the fuelon all of my sled then trailering them, i had more trouble starting them than not shutting them off at all. so the only time I use it is when I put the sleds away for their summer nap.
The RXL will not have a shut off. The fuel shut off is used for trailering when the front of the sled is kept in a lower position than normal for an extended period of time. The carbs as well as the crankcase tend to get flooded. The RXL does not have this problem due to the lack of carbs.
