I know, thats what I thought too. I've had it in there about 2 weeks. I keep checking it and it's always toast brown. Is it still okay to use? Seems to run fine.

The stock plug is a BP7HS. I never use that plug for ANY purpose. You see, the "P" stands for a protruding electrode. That type of plug is intended for other applications -- where the insulator cannot, under normal conditions stay clean. In your case, I would at least go up to a B7HS (cooler than the 6). Your 6 plug may be brown now but it probably goes white under high load conditions. Save yourself the heart ache of a burned piston or worse and install a cooler plug.

I've read the things that you've posted and you seem very informed on the atv. I was wondering if the things that you are discussing relate to the 2003 Scrambler 50 also? If so what is a quick and cheap modification to the atv? If the exaust restrictor is something that can be removed, where is it located and how is it removed?

It is located between head pipe and the cylinder. Remove your pipe and then remove the restrictor in the head pipe. It looks like a washer.

I attempted to do that a few days ago and there was no washer at all. The pipe was bolted directly to the head w/o out even a washer? Is this a change for '03?

my son also has a sranbler 50. Both he and I are frustrated by the cdi speed limiter. Can someone please tell me in no uncertain terms how to disable it. As far as i can see it is a sealed unit.(do I just simply cut the green wire everbody eludes to)

Thankyou for any assistance you may offer

Rick

The green wire is on the new Eton's. On the Polaris go to a 2000 or 2001 model cdi unit or replace it with a hi performance after market unit.

2001 polaris scrambler 50

I am not getting any power from my battery, no lights wont start nothing. it acts as if there is a fuse blown somewhere. Other than the fuse by the positive battery terminal is there one somewhere else, if not any ideas on what could be wrong? Also I can kick start it and it will run just fine for a little bit, then after riding it for maybe 5 minutes it just falls on its face like it runs out of gas. If i wait a little bit it will fire up again then do the same thing, what is going on, please help, going crazy.

I think, you once again checkout your Troubleshooting in your Polaris Scrambler 50 batteries.

Plastics

Ok my 7 year old was given one of these machines the 50 scrambler. It was not rode much but it is a 2001 model.

I have replaced a few items and it starts and runs better than my daughters 2011 rzr 170 does.

So its a good little machine and should last him a while.

What I am trying to figure out is if I can change the plastics out for a new model polaris 50?

Does anyone know what other plastics will fit on this machine being that its a 2001 new plastics are hard to come by...also he does not like red and thats about all I can find minus one guy on ebay with a blue set he wants an arm and leg for.
