Hey everyone!
I just purchased a 1992 polaris indy trail488 deluxe from craigslist, key start, 2up, everything!
there's just one small problem, when i start my sled, whether it be the pull start, or key start,and as it starts up, it tries to die out on me, so i hit the gas a little, but the issue is, it starts, but doesnt stay running, it cant idle without dying on me, my guess would bethe carbs need cleening, but just let me now your thoughts on this issue, thanks! [:D]

carbs could very well need a real good cleaning. I would start with that. the main and pilot jets should be replaced with new ones just for safe measures. but clean your carbs, and new jets and then see what happens. ALSO carbs might need to be tuned a little and check spark plugs and what not just to be safe [thumb]

Dumb question but are you using the choke?
yeah actually, it only starts with the choke, half the time
