Did a lot of riding....it may have happened once more....but not very often.
Then during summer...it started happening more frequently. Miyagi it happened several times...it got to the point during the summer..it would happen while riding, I wouldn't even stop...I would just turn the key off...coast...turn it back on....and keep going.
Finally, in December, Scott and I went riding and it was awful....like every 5 minutes it would die....just bog down...no throttle response. Reset the key...and good to go for another 5 minutes...but it was now happening regularly...something I could bring in...explain how to replicate..and it would happen.
Long story short.....it was the Fuel pump. So the pump would slowly lose pressure...when I would reset the key...the pump would reset and build pressure. As it died, it would lose pressure faster and faster.
Polaris ONLY sells the gas tank and Fuel pump together...and it's around $500....but there's another option.
You can remove the pump...and replace with a Hyundai car fuel pump....it's almost identical...and according to some...a much better pump.
NAPA Part #: P72118
AutoZone Part #: E8198
I can't verify the Autozone is the same part.....but I have put the Napa part in my quad...works like a champ!

I've been told I joke around too much.
So one day I tried being serious.
Not that I'm aware of....I had my dealer install it...he took it out of the box and went cool...that will work.Wildhorse800 wrote:Did you need any extras, like hose, clamps, etc?
