Sportsman 90 ?

4 posts in this topic

My son has a 2004 Polaris Sportsman 90.I used to have to turn the gas off on the machine to stop it from leaking from the overflow tube under the machine.Now it leaks from the overflow tube even when the gas is turned off.It will empty the tank down to about a pint of gas in the tank.Any ideas for a quick fix?does something need to be tightened?

Carb kit, had the same problem with the wheeler I bought. Got a new carb kit put in and all has been well since then.

Sounds like 2 problems; float valve and Fuel shutoff petcock. There might be some tightening or cleaning that you can do before replacing it. My old Yamaha leaks out of the overflow, too, and I just turn the fuel shutoff to Off. No more problem. Even if you do put a carb kit in and it fixes it, it wouldn't be a bad idea to get that fuel shutoff checked out.

yep float valve is stuck and you prolly gotta tighten ur shut off or that could be bad also but forsure the float valve

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
