Best Answer

Using too low an octane fuel, incorrect timeing, or carbon buildup. Timing isn't adjustable on the 97 so I would say it is carbon buildup and too low octane or cheap quality fuel. I have gotten "93" octane at cheapy places and still had pinging but gotten regular or mid grade at better stations and not had the slightest hint of ping. Also, check to make sure your plugs and wires are in good shape.

What causes pinging in a 2011 polaris 550 ATV?

Try using a higher octane gasoline in this ATV. Many times the pinging is due to not using a 91 or higher octane fuel. A lower fuel like 85 or 87 may not be burning off as efficiently as the 91 octane which in turn will cause the pinging.
