    1999 Polaris 1050 SLTX Boggs down

    I have a 1999 Polaris 1050 SLTX, took out for the first time this year. Ran great for about 5 minutes, then bogged down to 35mph. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and the same thing. Checked compression all 3 cylinders at 120PSI. All 3 plugs are firing, but one cylinder the plug is a little wet. I replaced all 3 plugs and same issue? Is it the CDI, Carb? Thanks

    Welcome to Green Hulk

    Do you have good spark on all 3 cylinders?

    Do you have any warning message on the display ? Blinking red light ?

    No blinking lights on and no error messages on display, all 3 cylinders have the same spark. Thanks

    If you crack open the gas cap when the problem happens, does the problem go away?

    If it does, then your fuel tank venting check valves are stuck closed.

    I have not tried that trick yet. If it does help what does that mean?

    You'd need to replace the check valve.....you'll see a fuel line that leads to vent somewhere near your front hatch or seat. The check valve is just below that.

    Before you go out again and burn it down, check fuel pressure or pull the carbs and clean them. Sounds like you're running out of fuel.
