    polaris throttle hesitation

    have a 2001 polaris virage 700 carberated that has throttle hesitation on initial acceleration. idles fine, starts fine, mid and full throttle are good. problem is worse after period of wide open throttle after stopping and accelerating agian. only happens ever so briefly on initial acceleration, a slight bog and worse after full throttle running. can anyone help?

    Did you try adjusting the low speed mixture screw? Turn it out 1/4 turn and see what happens.

    i will give it a try. any chance it would be TPS, ive been hearing a lot of throttle issues related to this although i know nothing about what it does. thanks

    There is no TPS on a carbureted engine

    Does your carbs have an accelerator pump?

    Did that solve your issue? It may be beneficial to take a look at piston wash to make sure you don't have other issues and this is just a band-aid fix. You can do so with a cheapie LED flex-light through the spark plug holes.

    My SLH ran great for a while but I noticed a slight loss of power at upper RPM/wide open throttle, it turned out being that the in-carb fuel filters were both clogged.
