VIN - Sportsman 500 or 500 HO?

I need to replace my Cam in my 2001 Sportsman 500. How do i determine if I have a 500 or 500 HO. VIN is 4XACH50A21A362362. Searched for a website. No luck. TIA

I'll have to double check the VIN as it doesn't match your list. that said all the "HO"s have the CH suffix. Anyone have experience with the non-OEM Cam sets? OEM ids very pricey, ~$500 after totally all the parts.

Uh, why would you even consider OEM? The overpriced inferior OEM cam is why you're having to work on it to now isn't it?

Valid point! I assumed Polaris would fix the problem with the inferior cams. Bad to “assume”. I find lots of options for lesser priced replacements on Amazon etc. How do I tell what’s “good”?

You know if you install a new cam you should install new rocker arms also

Yes, I realize that. Do You suggest I replace decompression actuator and spring too? They look ok.

As long as they are in good condition and function properly, reuse them
