    2010 polaris 800 won't idle????

    My sled idle's so low that the headlights and dash light will turn off and on and then it just shuts off. It runs find when I drive it or a give it a lil gas with the throttle but it won't idle on its own. Was wondering if anyone esle has had this problem or might know what is wrong.

    the sled has slp heads, pipe, highflow intake, boysen rage cages and pcv runing the slp map. I'll have to do a compression test but the motor only has around 250 miles since the new cylinders, pistons, rings.

    If it was poor compression or a vr it would run bad all the time, need to dig deeper, i would start by checking for broken or chipped reeds.

    Sounds like the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) needs to be adjusted,might have been bumped doin the reeds.
