check your carb float levels and you may also want to check your reed valves to make sure they are sealing properly. Im not sure how or if they wear out but it would be my first place to check.

Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.

Next time it wont start try disconnecting the plug on the back of your key switch. this will bypass the ignition and tell you if the switch is intermitantly not working. This is a long shot but you didint mention if you tried any of the usual tests for this problem . good luck.

I have the same machine. I had the same problem, replaced the needle and seats in the carbs and adjusted the choke cables to spec as in the manual and the problem was solved

Hey XCR nut that was your problem too. would yours seem to flood real easy after about 3 pulls. and the only way it would start usually was full throttle and pull too. But did you do anything else. How hard was it to change the seats and the needles and i dont have my manual so do you have the specs for the choke that i could use. was it very hard to adjust them. how much did it cost for the needles and the seats and where did you get them from. Did you also ever have any problems with it like boggin out after like half throttle totally and toppin out at like 60 and not even burryin the tach. even off the start it kind of boggs. Im tryin to figure this out someone told me its the cdi box. Thanks man

That is EXACTLY what my 92 440 xcr does. After half throttle, nothing , just like I never got past half throttle. This is after a rebuild. I installed new spark plug boots, that's the only adjustment in the ignition system I did after the rebuild.

Mine would flood so bad if I left the fuel tap on, that I had to remove the crankcase drains to let the fuel out of the bottom of the engine to get it started.the parts were about $65.00 @ the Polaris dealer.Try shutting the fuel off when you park it to diagnose this condition. You may also have dirty carbs check this and clean completly if you put new seats in. I never had any power problem.A good investment is a clymer shop manual that can help you sort the problems out for around $40-50 and it lists all of the adjustments required

Same prob. with my 95 XLT Fixed it, Still Love It. O.k. first pull the carb's, next carefully remove the needle Jet's,(not the Needle and seat) one at a time(as to not mix them up). Take your carb cleaner and spray down the entire carb. Next with an air nozzle carfully blow through the center of the needle jet as to make light visible through it again. Then blow a little more gently through the needle jet journal, check all fuel lines, and water seperation hose's for cracks and replace parts as removed. Ride and Enjoy. If this dosen't solve your prob. let us know and I can walk you trough a little more in depth cleaning of your carbs.Jet's,

One more thing to check. When you first notice your starting problem. Remove your belt and try again. If you rebuilt your clutch maybe a spacer was left out, witch would result in too tight of a belt, and in turn would creat quite an arobic workout while starting. If so replace the spacer.
