    Polaris SLX Sputtering

    I have a polaris SLX that will act like it is starving for fuel or just plain sputters with 40% power. If I shut if off while I'm riding when it starts sputtering and start it right back up it will have full power for about a minuite. Any one have any yhoughts as to what this might be?


    Thanks for all the help

    might need to replace the fuse in the CDI for the mfd to work.

    Water inside the MFD is often fatal. You can try opening it up per the repair guide. Dry it out, also clean the LCD contacts.

    Check or reseal the the electrical connector from inside the MFD shell, as some MFD had a pinhole gap where moisture could get inside. Make sure it is properly sealed when you glue it back together, but do not use an excessive amount of sealant.

    More MFD info via my signature links, in the MFD section.

    There is a fuse inside the electrical box. Replace only with another 1/4 Amp fuse.
