    Polaris Virage

    I'm working on a polaris virage 700 and I have numerous problem. someone maybe able to help. At first I had one spark then no spark changed 505 and stator and ski started just fine ran 30 min on the water stop it then will not turn over by pressing on/stop button, now if I bridge the selenoid it will crank and start and run fine, will stop when pressing stop button but will not crank back with start button. any idea?
    Thanks, Louie

    Give this one a whirl. I believe it's SL that first posted it eons ago. I've seen this work for 01's as well.

    Here is the cdi jumper wire TSB for most domestic models that are hard to start when hot.

    Service Bulletin # PWC-00-05
    August 8, 2000

    Subject
    Add Jumper Wire to CDI
    Model Affected: Serial Number Range:
    2000 Virage (W005197D) ALL
    2000 Virage TX (W005199D) ALL
    2000 Pro 1200 (W004999D) ALL
    2000 Genesis (W005099D) ALL

    SCENARIO #1 MODELS WITH DUAL FUNCTION START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine will not turn over when engine is warm. After stopping the engine and trying
    to re-start the engine when warm, the starter motor will not turn over. In this scenario, the CDI
    remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the engine is still run-ning
    even though it is not. After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally. Install jumper
    wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.

    SCENARIO #2 MODELS WITH SEPARATE START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine turns over but will not start when engine is warm. After stopping the engine
    and trying to re-start the engine when warm, the engine will crank, but not start. Again, in this
    scenario, the CDI remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the
    engine is still running even though it is not. After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally.
    Install jumper wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.

    What color is the solenoid .If it is brown it is the new style and they rarely give trouble .The black colored solenoid however does fail quite a bit .Sure sign of it has shat itself is to take it off and inspect the rubber seal between the base plate and the body .If it is pushed out around the edges then it has moisture in it and can decide to engage when you are riding .That costs lots of money .Stator starter and all associated parts .Check with test light on power to solenoid .Change to the brown solenoid to be safe anyway


    Cheers
