XLT flooding help needed!!

Flooding problem - '97 Polaris XLT SP, low miles, excellent condition, all stock except main carb springs cut by previous owner to lower throttle pull. This sled is fast and smooth. Carbs were cleaned & adjusted, fuel pump diaphram checked for back flow, gas tank vent is clear, and chokes adjusted. If I let the sled sit for a couple a days without shutting off the gas, the crank case will fill with about 1 cups gas, and no start until I drain the case and dry the plugs. Warm start is always great. Outside temp. makes no difference. I know the easy answer is to remember to turn off the gas. Usually I do...but it seems as if it shouldn't act as it does regardless. Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated. General post/reply or private E-Mail to ltsmitty@hotmail.com is appreciated. THX

Polaris is known for doing that. The only other thing you can check is to put in new needle and seats in all the carbs. Or just do like I do and make it a routine to turn off the gas. Ride hard, Ride safe.

Re: XLT flooding help needed!!

Hubblej is right. We have 2 94 xlts and as long as we always turn the gas off at the end of our days ride were fine. If not they flood
every time, and to not have to change all the jets we just turn off the gas always and we dont have problems. Good luck

Check your carb floats, they may leak. Also make sure the float flange is properly seating against the fuel jet when the carb bowl is full of fuel, and that the fuel jet is clean.
