    Cool Polaris virage 2001 1200cc Ficht

    The Fuel regulator fell off and I re installed it with the barb tip method. Now the ski sometimes will get up and go but die out slowly or sometimes wont get up and go at all. Most of the time turning the ski off and back on will fix it for a few minuets but then it falls on its face again.

    What should I try to fix this issue? I was thinking a new tps, the pigtail style.

    would like a second option before I go and spend the money on it.

    Thanks in advanced

    If your TPS is failing there is no workaround other than installing a new TPS.

    Even if your TPS is good, it is always handy to have a spare TPS on hand, as if it does fail someday, there is no alternative to installing a working TPS.

    I know, but is the ski just randomly falling on its face and not wanting to get up and go sound like the tps is failing?

    Make sure your gauge is telling you the correct pressure when the throttle is applied. Do the actual fuel hoses sag/relax when the gauge indicated pressure drops?

    If the fuel pressure really is dropping when throttle is applied then something weird is going on. Could be EMM, could be a wiring or connector issue. Could even be a weak fuel pump.

    The fuel lines dont seem to sag at all, the fuel gauge is accurate. Friend uses on daily basis on outboard motors at his work.

    Sometimes the center pin in the Schrader valve does not get properly pressed down by the adapter to the pressure gauge. In those cases I loosen the schrader valve insert a couple of turns or remove it completely to ensure the pressure gauge is not being blocked by the valve
