P O L A R I S, oh god, that could be anything from bad wiring, bad fuel, coil problem, etc..........Anyone familiar with Polaris? My buddy bought a 2002 Scrambler 400, and he said it shuts off after the bike warms up... Anyone know what would, or which sensor would cause this? Any help or idea is appreciated.
Great you got her fixed, which sensor would that be that caused it to shut down.............Here's an update if anyone wanted to know
a combination of wiring, and the hose from the overflow tank not hooked up. So there was no circulation, which was fooling the sensor and making her shut down
I would think that a temperature sensor in the engine would be more beneficial to sense heat then in the rad. If the engine overheated because of a malfunctioning thermostat, the engine would fry before the rad sensor got hot enough to sense there was a problem.The way it was explained to me, that's what i got....I assume it's a safety so it doesn't over heat and bake the engine. He actually bought a new sensor thinking it was just that, but that didn't correct it. There's a local atv mechanic in his town, and he's the one that actually sorted it out.
