    Having a problem where my Sportsman 700 (not EFI) will not run unless choked. So as I'm troubleshooting, I check the oil just to be thorough. It looks too thin and when I sniffed it, it smelled like gas. I had the dealership fix a problem like this a couple years ago. What causes this and what...

    So I recently purchased a 2005 Polaris Magnum 330 4x4 and took it out that same day with no issues. It was rode hard for the weekend and when returned, and serviced I began to notice a lot of issues. Main thing I cannot seem to figure out is the 4 wheel drive engagement. At first glance when...

    I have an 05 sportsman 500 that I had the unfortunate problem of falling into a deep hole in a creek. Needless to say it was submerged for about a half hour. After we got it back on the bank I pulled the plug and turned it over to get any water out of the cyclinder. I have drained the water...
