check the free play in the throttle to much free play in throttle will kick in the etc safety. you only want a 1/16 play in throttle. if not could be dirty carb, check air filter

no one has to play with it, to adjust free play about 6 inches from the thumb throttle itself on the throttle cable there will be a rubber boot. pull the rubber back to expose the throttle cable adjuster, turn till you get the correct 1/16 play on the thumb throttle

service manual will tell you your voltage. me it was the magnito too as well as the stator which cost 1300 $$

$1300, that is crazy expensive.

Today I pulled my air cleaner off and while reving the engine sprayed sea foam deep creep into the carb. Seemed to do the trick as it is running fine now.

I had hoped mine was fuel related and it seems it was. Working on the carb on these things is such pain ITA!

yup that was the problem with my shitty polaris. seel the thing before more things go on it, they say if your past 3500miles get rid of it before you replace the whole bike with new parts..
