    put dielectric grease on all your electrical connections, plug up the drain plug on the bottom of your carb, make sure ur not running on water instead of gas thats wat i did mine runs fine now

    I see it says you have a snorkel. Did you run your carb vent lines up high too? That could also be it. My buddy has a Polaris and the spark plug boot is screwed up on it and when you hit water with it and it splashes up on the spark plug it shuts off. I would double check and make sure you got a good connection between your spark plug and plug boot and make sure there's still a good bit of dielectric grease in there.

    sounds like the drain line on the bottom of the carb.did u plug it or does it still have the crappy one way valve in it?

    It could be the carb vent line or even the tank breather hose. My foreman shut off in the water & I found it was the tank hose that was getting in the water. No vent=no gas. Just my 0.02...

    I'll bet 100 dollars your main vent line on the carb is stopped up with dirt or dirt dobber or is two small.either way the carb isn't getting atmospheric pressure through it so it is venting out the drain on the bottom of bowl.as soon as this drain is covered in water the carb can't vent so it shuts off the fuel. To test this pull the main vent line off at carb and get in the water up to tires but not above carb and it will run. to fix blow out vent line from carb out or make sure it not kinked if you have to small a line when u snorkeled it that will cause this too...
