Me Again - Carb purchase help for Polaris Ranger 6x6 500

Hi again

Everyone has been very helpful here and I appreciate it. Today my rig was actually running pretty good but when it gets up to operating temperature it does great up until the last 20% of the throttle, it starts to feel like it is cutting out. I would think that it might be the governor kicking in but I really don't think I am going near top speed.

So I am thinking it might just be best to put a new carb on there. It has been suggested to me that there may be an aftermarket replacement. The carb currently is Mizuni factory unit. If there is an aftermarket that is as good or better I'd like to hear about it. I checked sponsors and don't see anything unless I missed it.

Any help would be appreciated. Moose season will be here within a few months and I want maximum power and reliability.

Thank you,

Joe

I would ask Dirty Dawg Performance if he knows of anything you can do. Also your belt could be slipping at high speeds causing it to hit the rev limiter. I have seen this on some older models.

Thank you, I will check with Dirty Dawg, I think it was his website that I could not do a parts lookup online.

Should not be a slipping belt, but one never knows. I just replaced it maybe in the past 20 miles. I did an "upgrade" that I saw posted online where I essentially used a Sportsman 700 drive belt. Apparently tougher belt. Installed easy enough. One can never know on the slippage thing though.

I'll keep that in mind.

Thank you

Joe

Ranger 500 6x6 loss of power/rpms. Have you checked your muffler/spark arrestor to see if it might be stopped up with carbon. There is a plug in the bottom of the muffler you can remove to clean most (if not all of the carbon deposits) It will also help to tap around the outside of the muffler to break some of the carbon loose. If the muffler/spark arrestor is plugged the engine can't breathe. (exhale) Good luck with your problem. I am experiencing the same problem myself. It is a lot less expensive to tap on your muffler, than to buy possibly unnecessary carb or parts.
