I am working on a 1997 Polaris 425 6x6

It hasn’t been run in 6 years, so drained old fuel out, changed oil, and put new transmission fluid, new plugs, greased it…tried to start it and it will turn over, but won’t start. The plugs are getting fuel. The carb. may be the problem, or maybe a fuel line to the carb? I am not sure what to do now.

Probably time to take off the carb and have it rebuilt / cleaned. Any gas that old will turn to varnish and most likely will render your carb ineffective. It may be cheaper to find an online souce and purchase a new one.
I would also pull the air box and make sure it isnt clogged and inspect to make sure the mice havent made a home inside of it.

I figured the carb...The air box was fine and clean with brand new filter.

Thanks

Is it getting spark? If there is fuel to the plugs then I would look past the carb for now. Confirm there is good spark then you may have a flooding problem.
