    2001 Polaris Virage Starting Issues. Please Help

    I purchase a new 2001 polaris virage with only 19hr on it. When the engine is on and I dont give it gas, the engine will shut off. I have to keep constantly use a little throttle to prevent the jet ski engine from turning off.

    What can cause this problem?

    I dont think the old owner maintenance it much so what type of maintenance will fix this?

    Raise the idle a little... that should help.

    BUT... with that low of usage, and it being 9 years old... the carbs could need cleaned.

    Does it have good fuel in it?
