  1. Poor Braking

    ATV General Discussion
    make sure the rear brake has fluid in the master cylinder (not the one on the handle bars, but check that one as well. If not the hand brake forces fluit back into it. If you put on the foot brake it blocks the valve and the hand brake works the pads.
  2. HIDs in sportsman?

    ATV General Discussion
    I have used them in all three lights in the past. I put LED sealed units in the lowers as I also could not keep the water out of the lower ones. I still use HID in the pod light.
  3. Front Diff Noise and Increase Resistance Issue - '05 Sportsman 800

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    If you need fluid, buy some UTF synthetic. That is what the manufacturer recommends. Its also way cheaper that the POPO stuff.
  4. Wont Start Checklist

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Okay that's odd. If heat is helping then you must have some moisture somewhere that is freezing. Once it starts the motor makes heat which keeps it from reoccurring. When its cold it turns over quickly but doesn't start? I would try taking a bit of gas in a spray bottle and spraying in the air...
  5. Wont Start Checklist

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Does it start when you pull start it? If so then the battery is weak and although it turns over the motor, it doesn't leave enough power to run the ignition. Have had it happen on my 500.
  6. How deep can they safely go?

    ATV General Discussion
    if the Wedding Tackle is getting moist without the date around, then you are too deep. You will likely have some belt slippage but that will go away quickly by riding it.
  7. Polaris thinks we will never get upside down.

    ATV General Discussion
    The company is called four stroke solutions. I imagine that it can be modded to fit a quad. He may even be interested in doing this. Would be good idea to ask him. FOUR STROKE SOLUTIONS LLC - Home
  8. Polaris thinks we will never get upside down.

    ATV General Discussion
    Its an issue with 4 strokes. I have a Yamaha sled and because this is an issue with much more often on a snowmobile there is a guy who designed a roll over valve. If you roll over, the tether kills the motor and a small servo closes off the breather tube so you dont loose any oil. Works very...

    Odyssey for me as well.
  10. Periodically Start Over the Winter?

    ATV General Discussion
    If you are going to start it over the winter which I do with my quads and sleds in the summer, make sure you run them until they are warm enough for the fan to kick in. Other wise you create condensation that sits around in the all the nooks and crannys. Tender is the best but if you cant...
  11. OEM Starter vs. eBay; Huge Price Difference...WHY?

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have changed a pile of starters in my days. My experience is that the OEM ones may last a bit longer than the aftermarket but no where near long enough to justify 3-4x the cost. I buy from DB electrical and always buy a few so I have one to change out while I rebuild the one that failed. 90%...
  12. Wont Start Checklist

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Check spark first. Maybe a wire came loose. Also empty out the carb float bowl and double check that there is gas and that it is getting to the carb. For kicks if you have spark pour a bit of gas in the spark plug hole and see if it fires over. That will help you determine if you have a fuel...
  13. LED Lights?

    ATV General Discussion
    I bought a couple of sets of Solaris Xtremes for my 850's. They were plug and play in the factory spots. They are unbelievable and super rugged. I had HID's but got tired trying to keep moisture out of the lenses. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be around anymore.
  14. 500 will not start

    ATV General Discussion
    Check for spark by grounding out the plug and turning it over. This will also help if its flooded. If you have spark, try putting some gas down the sparkplug hole and see if it fires. If it does then you have a carb issue. Work and report back from there.
  15. How poeple have polaris sleds beside there Polaris atvs

    ATV General Discussion
    I hear what you are saying about the weight of 4 strokes but in all honesty where we live we ride our sleds not carry them. ;) You speak of power to weight ratio. My sled weighs 45lbs more than the Arctic Cat 8000 two stroke but I have close to 40 more horsepower. That being said in all honesty...
  16. How poeple have polaris sleds beside there Polaris atvs

    ATV General Discussion
    Well I don't have a Polaris but I do have a 2016 Turbo Yamaha Viper with 190hp and a 141 track. I get on my XP 850's and wonder where the throttle response on the quad is after the winter.
  17. 2007 sportsman 800 no spark

    ATV General Discussion
    it could be the impulse coil has been jarred and is not spaced properly. If the gap gets too big it wont trigger the spark.
  18. Helmet to helmet communication?

    ATV General Discussion
    I have Sena 20's for my sleds. I use them on my motorcycle as well as my quads. Only issue is that sometimes the intercom doesn't come on when the music is on. This is easy remedied by pushing the button on the side.
  19. 2015 Sportsman 1000 gear problems

    ATV General Discussion
    enough of the haters. Its your machine do as you wish. That being said at no time did he ask about warranty or say it was a defect. It is your reverse silent chain. I just did one on my 08 500. It took me longer to take it out than it did to fix. It was actually very easy once I had the tranny...
  20. Can not find any post about rear axles.

    ATV General Discussion
    Been there, fought that issue. Anti-seize is the way to go. I had to get a muffler clamp and clamp it over a hook from a large slide hammer. That eventually came off so I ended up using a mig welder to tack it to the hub. Then with two large pry bars behind it a slammed the snot out of the...
