    2001 polaris virage bogs down

    2001 virage two cylinder will not accelerate but will idle and start great, when you try to take off or get it to plane from idle it will die or bog down. sometimes if you pump the accelerator it will help, when you do get to plane it runs fine. changed spark plugs, cleaned water separator, fuel lines have been changed

    Welcome to the Hulk

    have you tried playing with the choke when taking off? are you sure you got the carb settings correct?

    I have.I have to use some choke to get it started.My carb is all stock and I adjusted the slow speed screw like the book said.The tip of the screw looked like it was missing some plating?Not sure if that would make a difference?

    if you have to use choke to get it going it sounds like its running lean, open up your low speed screws 1/4 turn

    I started out with the 3/4 and have turned it out more.Maybe half a turn more.Can you turn it to much the manual really does not say?

    I have played with the choke all it does is kills it like it is working correctly and flooding it out.

    You both have opposite symptoms. If it gets better with choke. Its lean. If you choke and stalls. It could be rich. Does it just go blaaaaaaaaaaaa or spit and sputter?

    Mine goes blaaaaaaaaaaaa! off idle.The low speed screw looked like it had some plating that had come off of the end of it.Not sure id this would effect it?I noticed it when I cleaned the carb.I have a new one on order anyway.

    mine will just die as soon as you choke it, pulling choke does nothing on acceleration for me but kill it
