  1. Sportsman 90 Service Manual?

    Polaris Sportsman
    I need the VIN - 17 digits will start with an L or R depending on whether it was manufactured in Taiwan or China - it's stamped into the frame somewhere - to narrow it down, is it a 2 stroke or 4 stroke engine?
  2. 2 Cycle Oil Lowest Temp

    ATV Oil, Lubrication & Filter
    No studies that I know of, but the type of two cycle oil mixed with the fuel has no bearing on crankcase temp - the temp of the crankcase is somewhat regulated by the temperature of the incoming air as there is no oil in the crankcase. The only oil in the crankcase is the oil carried in with...

  4. 2004 sportsman 500 HO no electrical power

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Not that I know of, but MODULEMASTER might be able to do something with it like Brian58 suggests, but I can get that module new from Polaris for less than $200 - might check with your nearest dealer, but it's your choice.

  6. 2004 sportsman 500 HO no electrical power

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Funny you should ask - here's the pages from the service manual that describe it's functions in; in addition to supplying power to the wiring harness, it is responsible for charging the battery, turning the cooling fan on and off and some other stuff.
  7. Sprocket ratio change for front and rear on xplorer 400

    Polaris Xplorer and Xpedition
    OH! damn - I looked up a 2000 400 Xplorer - you mean they made changes from one year to another? I thought they were all the same. Count the teeth on each sprocket - figure out he ratio on the ratio chart and change the sprockets to lower the ratio the same percentage on each end. NO PROBLEM...
  8. Sprocket ratio change for front and rear on xplorer 400

    Polaris Xplorer and Xpedition
    The Xplorer 300 is a chain drive to the front and rear while the 400 is chain on the rear and shaft on the front. The only way to gear down the front is to go to smaller diameter wheels and tires. The front is over driven by the rear so the AWD only engages when the rear wheel start slipping -...

    Yep - you need a new SSCB (Sure Power Unit) - part number 2203348 (or if looking for a used part - the original number was 4010937)
  10. Front differential bushing

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I'm guessing this is on your 04 700? The same parts are used in the 2020 Ranger and while the bushing is depicted in the breakdown, it is not listed with a part number - it is part of the output hub (3233953) which includes the dowel pin and the thrust bearing @ $395 - will definitely be...
  11. new to forum,

    ATV New Members
    Welcome to the forum. You will need all the help you can get as very few parts are available for vehicles that old, but hope springs eternal and some parts that are not available from Polaris are available from other manufacturers and some non-Polaris parts may be substituted. I have used...
  12. 2018 Polaris Sportsman won't turn over after installing light bar

    Polaris Sportsman
    If you don't know how to unplug it, take it to a dealer now - it has a 50 pin multi pin plug with a lock or two to prevent it from becoming loose or disconnected during operation - you release the locks and unplug the connector just like 80% of the other connectors on the wiring harness.
  13. Front differential bushing

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Myself, I would just go to a machine shop and have them make one for me or with the details (inner dia., outer dia., length, thickness and material it may be possible a local bearing supply house would have one, could get one, have one that could be modified or if you know the various years and...
  14. 2001 scrambler 50. cant keep it running

    Polaris Scrambler
    Old thread - start a new thread and describe the problem you are having - when the problem arose, if the machine had been setting, year and model, any modifications, last time serviced, type of fuel used, any fuel additives used and when the additives are added to the fuel - all the variables...
  15. 2018 Polaris Sportsman won't turn over after installing light bar

    Polaris Sportsman
    Unplug the ECU and see if it will power up - the EFI relay gets it's ground through the ECU, but the chassis wiring relay gets it's ground directly at the power block - if it powers up and the relays quit clicking with the ECU unplugged, then you probably have a faulty ECU - that would have to...
