Hello everyone. I just joined this morning.
I registered because my wife and I recently bought a 1995 Polaris SL 650 STD. The last time it ran was in '04. It has been covered and garaged ever since. I pulled the tank out yesterday and cleaned it all up. I also replaced the fuel filters and cleaned out the sediment bowl. I put in a new battery.
It will turn over but not fire. I am not getting spark to my plugs and the fuel pump(?) is not pumping. A mechanic friend told me to check the start/stop switch, though I am not sure once I get into it what to look for. And for the fuel, he said to check the diaphram - is that where the sed. bowl is connected.
Any help/advise anyone can give , I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

hotpotato, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!!
Make sure all of the fuel line is in good working order. Lines that old will fold over and kink your fuel supply.
I would certainly pull the carbs and have a peak inside, I'm certain you'll find they are "gelled" with old fuel.
If you're still using a single outlet pump (one fuel line supplying all 3 crabs) I'd take this opportunity to change the pump. I personally like the 3 outlet version.
Have you verified spark? I like to use an inline spark tester to verify the electrical system is firing.
Others will have some more ideas.

Welcome, and check the tech section for testing procedures on the elec. stator. Also look into getting a new fuel selector valve.
