Sled wont start

Sled is a 1996 polaris xcr 600 sp triple, summerized it by draining the fuel tank an the carbs, put fresh gas in it earlier to get it running but no luck, it does get spark and it is getting fuel because the plugs are wet, yes the key is on, choke on, kill switch off I've no idea why it won't start, please help guys?!

I have problems with my 97 Indy 500 getting it started, putting little bit of gas straight into the cylinders then quickly putting spark plugs on and caps then try and fire it up. Always have worked for me and the old Indy. Probably not the best solution but it works for me.

i just hold throttle full open and spray starting fluid. it goes straight into the cyl. soething sounds wrong with gas+spark not equaling combustion. you sure you got spark AND gas getting to cyl? only thing i can think of is flood. its very common in these sleds if you store without turning off gas. pull plugs out and pull cord 30-40 times to air everything then try. tell me if it works!

also how i tell if gas is good is by taking a good wiff. if it burns your nose a lil its good, if it stinks and doesnt burn, its bad.

If you use gas in the cylinders, use premix! Putting straight gas in the cylinders of a 2 stroke isn't a good thing. I mix a little bit in a bottle with a smaller nozzle on the end, then keep it stored in the garage if I need it to get a sled going. Ether works but get the kind with upper cylinder lubricant, otherwise it's also not good for anything.

it would bother me more if the motor was brand new and didnt still have a bit of oil in it. alot of doo's have primers, which do not pump oil in with the gas. think 4 stroke engines really dont have any lubricant there in the upper cyl.

Four strokes don't have ports in the sides of the cylinder walls either. It's really not a big deal to mix some gas. To each their own I guess.

Kid- again, before all this... Have you cleaned the carbs? That is where you need to start.
