Other than a simple adjustment to secondary clutch 2" leveling kit and 26" 8ply tires and slightly modified stock muffler the drive train is all factory. Solid machine with surprising power.

Not that I know of on the relocate kit. Find older Polaris where it's in left rear fender well. Cut it off. Weld it to yours and extend wires back to there. Still gonna get wet. The batteries are sealed. Except the vent tube. Does your starter wire get wet. Same wire that goes to battery. It don't short out. And if your shaft is running it something is wrong. I'd see your dealer.

My concerns
1) A submerged battery will short out sooner or later
2) My driveshaft has a clean spot where its been rubbing up againhst the battery.

Just looking for a re-location kit.
not being an electrical engineer, you've got no clue what you're talking about. The placement of the battery (a sealed unit) is perfect, as it helps keep the center of gravity low, and puts more weight forward getting it closer to centered between the tires. this is great for accent/decent, side hills, and launch. the battery, and all it's wiring will be fine down there. it's protected from impact by the frame, and it won't be harmed if it gets a little water or mud on it.

If your battery has been rubbing on the driveshaft it's not installed properly. Either it's not mounted right, or it's not the right battery. The only other person to post about battery rubbing on the shaft had a 570 and it was because the dealer had installed the wrong battery during dealer set up.

Well I did it, couple weeks ago I rolled my etx turning around on a dirt road. I goosed the throttle she caught an edge and over we went. As a result I bent a bracket on the front cargo rack, broke some plastics off the the rear rack (fixable), got some rocks in the bead of a tire, and snapped the throttle lever clean off (fixed). I'm kind of blown away but not surprised to find that polaris makes a break point on the lever but does not service the part alone. Instead you have to buy the entire unit for $92!!!! Some glue a piece of aluminum sheeting and qbond I can stand on my new/used lever. It's beginning to snow in the mountains here in oregon I can't wait to go out and play soon!!!

You wanna play, you gotta pay.

Wow that's a lot of damage for a simple power-turn flip on a dirt road. In the old days you would just stick your foot out and keep it from going over. These new quads are just too heavy, bulky, and top-heavy corky. Center of gravity is too high to have any real fun with them.

Glad you're ok!

I would say 90% of the rollovers I see are from people doing donuts then catching an edge and going over.

This is kind of what happened, it was a tight dirt road and I was having fun with it, I hammered the throttle to pitch her sideways and like I said caught an edge and over we went. There was definitely no sticking a foot out to stop it. And yes thank you Im glad I was ok too.
