1997 Polaris Magnum 425 4x4
Ok I just received a 1997 Polaris Magnum 425 4x4, from my late uncle. Now it has a few issues that I am wondering about. It has about 3500 miles on it now.
1. What maintaince needs to be done and how often, I would guess it will see about 25 miles a year worth of use, and be stored in a climate controlled garage. But I would guess its been many years since anything has been done to it.
2. Where is the best place to pick up replacement parts reasonably priced, it needs the coolant tank, the 90 degree nipple, and a new hose. It also needs the plastic cover that covers the rear disc brake.
3. At some point the 4x4 failed, and he removed the front chain. And to make it work he has a wire holding the override button down...is this acceptable? If not is it worth really fixing the 4 wheel drive or not?
