    Polaris Virage 700 starting issue, need help

    I recently bought a 700 polaris virage for my wife, that was blown up. I bought a rebuilt motor and installed it today. Everything is put together, it has spark, but wont start. I tried spraying a little carb and choke cleaner in the carbs, and nothing, it just turns over. A couple of other things I noticed was I could still crank it over, even if I had the tether switch out of it, the speedometer was on 70, and the digital center wasnt coming on. I check all the fuses and the connections, any body have any suggestions?

    When the flywheel was installed, was care taken to ensure the keyway was in place?

    If you dribble some pre-mix gas+oil into the carb throats, then crank it, does it start, or try to start?

    Is the spark at the plugs strong and consistent while the engine is cranking?

    It is normal for the engine to crank with the tether out.

    ...the speedometer was on 70, and the digital center wasn't coming on...
    Sounds like the MFI is damaged, or is not getting power (check voltage at each end of fuse relative to engine ground, both should be 12.x volts). Normally the speedo needle sits at zero, and when power is applied, it swings all the way around to max, then back to zero. If you unplug the MFI, wait a few hours, then re-plug it, does it do this?

    While the MFI is unplugged, try starting the engine again.

    Also confirm that battery voltage is well above 10.5 volts while cranking the engine, measured with a multi-meter at the battery posts.
