2007 Polaris Ranger XP cough at 3/4 to full throttle

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 700Xp Ranger, 320hrs, the machine started to develop a cough at 3/4 to full throttle. The Machine runs perfect other than that, and will cruise down the road at 5900 RPM with no issue. If you stomp the gas from idol or low RPM it wont start the issue until the RPMS get above 5K, if you running 3-4K it will do it as soon as the throttle reaches 3/4 open. I have changed the plugs and read them, look slightly lean but not bad. No codes except and code its had since I owned it for the transmission. Tested fuel pressure, its right on, looked for air leaks around the boot, found none. I also changed the belt just to make sure it wasn't a slipping issue that the tach didn't show it getting to the rev limiter. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Just started it a few weeks ago, I did notice an issue with voltage to the battery this weekend, suspected the voltage regulator bat was 12.4V when i started the machine it went to 11.8 and would only come up to 12.2 at 3000 RPM. No starting issues though! I took the VR off and tried to get a new one but Polaris was out, so I put it back on and it was charging normally again, but still popping. I also noticed that tach shows it idling at 970RPM but sounds more like 6-700 RPMs to me. I got a new VR coming this week. hoping it fixes  all the issues...

After re-reading your original post, I see you've considered the limiter. If the VR doesn't fix the problem. I'd wonder if it's a gummed up fuel system? Since there's no codes, and very low hours.

I've found, that if it starts, and runs, and that's the problem, then there's hope of it self cleaning, by running it enough.

I'd try adding some seafoam, and run it, see if it improves after a tank of fuel, or so.

      I have a 2018 Massimo 700 MSU with the Delphi MT05 ECU.
      I have seen an alternative ECU reset procedure that involves running the engine at WOT for 5 seconds in neutral and then shutting down while throttle still at WOT.  The articles include comments that the rev limiter will prevent engine overspeed ad attendant damage. 
      1. Is this actually a recommended procedure for restting the ECU on a 700 MSU?
      2. What is the rev limited maximum RPM for the 700 MSU?
      I initiated this procedure but when the RPM exceeded 6000 I immediately terminated the process. It simply seemed excessive to me to continue.
      Any and all responses are greatly appreciated.

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?

      Many people have issues with the kawasaki FJ400 engine  fouling out spark plugs, after  working on a  few FJ engines and 600 series Mule's with this issue,  i can say the fix for this issue is using a slightly hotter spark plug... the factory recommends a BPR6ES NGK plug.... the Number in NGK plugs represents its heat range and somewhat odd, the lower the number the hotter the plug, at least as far as NGK is concerned. If you have  a Mule fouling spark plugs try installing a NGK BPR4ES spark plug.
      FROM NGK
      A hotter heat range spark plug has an insulator design with a longer heat flow path to the metal shell of the plug. As a result, more heat stays in the ceramic firing end and less is dissipated to the engine. A colder heat range spark plug has an insulator design with a shorter heat flow path to the metal shell of the plug. As a result, less heat stays in the ceramic firing end and more is dissipated to the engine. For a spark plug to function properly, it must have a tip temperature high enough to burn off carbon deposits (self-cleaning) and avoid fouling, while remaining low enough to avoid overheating the ceramic firing end and pre-ignition.

      Have a Hisun 800 it runs for about 35 minutes then stalls. Crank's over but has no spark. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes and it starts and runs again for about 35 minutes. Changed the CDI / ECU controller and still does it.

      I have a 2023 trailboss 750. It has a low rpm and mid rpm miss that won't go away. Took it to a shop and had full service, valves adjusted and a sensor replaced. Think the miss is worse than before. Any ideas?0
