Knockin Noise what to do?
Hi, Everyone New here. I just bought a 2002 Polaris Trail Boss 325. I bought it knowing that most of these things knocked or made noises straight off the line. Well after getting my new to me four wheeler home. I discovered the engine was full of that thick stuff or some type of motor honey type fluid instead of oil. When I changed the oil the noise became much louder. It is a knocking noise in the engine. That gets quieter as rpm increases and almost disappears but does not. It also gets faster of course. I bought this as is from a old guy so I can't just bring it back, and I would go and royally fuck him up but he is old and would not present a challenge. Frankly I like challenges. Besides the knocking it starts with just a slight pull on the recoil every time first time and seems to run great.
1. Where to get parts for this that are really good price?
2. What is the Cheapest I could get by with doing myself, and what would it cost to have a stealership rebuild it and what kind of lube to use lol?
3. While I'm in there any how or have it apart what would the best way to get more performance out of this engine on a budget seeing some things will need to be replaced?
I thank you for all answers and ideas given ahead of time.
