  1. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Good evening All I just purchased a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 1000XP LE and the front diff is not engaging I switch to AWD on demand and the diff does not engage. I tested all the wires from the connector so 4/4 lights test in 2WD and in AWD only 3/4 light test not sure if that normal. Secondly the...
  2. Polaris Xplorer and Xpedition
    I bought a 2001 Xplorer 400, 2 stroke a few months ago. Ran fine until about 2 weeks ago, it wont stay in high gear as soon as it revs to high it just pops out. I've tried to hold it in gear and it seems to work. low gear hasn't given me any issues yet and reverse is fine as well. it almost...
  3. ATV Brakes & Suspension
    New to atvs. I picked up a 1988 trailboss 4x4 from an auction for $200 figuring i can get it going again. Fast forward 3 months later and sinking in almost 1k, I now have a completely rebuilt trailboss. Everything is good on it except I notice that the break light only works when headlights are...
  4. Polaris Scrambler
    After getting accidentally hooked on ATVs after a random cheap chinese ATV purchase I have now gone all out and bought a Scrambler 500 HO 2006 (for me this is a big deal :D ). I am still waiting for delivery due tomorrow, and I am already contemplating some mods! So I would like to investigate...
  5. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 2004 Polaris sportsman 500 HO 4x4 that starts up and runs like a top but overheats too quickly. If I am riding at high speeds it does just fine and doesn’t throw a temp warning light or anything but the moment I stop and idle for a couple minutes the temp warning light comes on and it...
  6. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hey guys. New to quads, bought the xplorer 400 2 stroke the other day. Bikes in great condition, only 4000km on it. It sat for about 6 years. I have put maybe 3 hours on it, and while going through some tall grass and rough trail it flashed the temp light. This is weird, because it has plenty of...
  7. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hi, so i bought a used 06 foreman 800, seemed ok when i bought it, i noticed a difference when i engaged the 4x4 when i was riding around. Well now that there is snow i noticed that i don't have much torque coming from the front wheel in forward and reverse with awd engaged. Back wheels spin a...
  8. Polaris Sportsman 570
    Hey Folks, I have a 2016 Polaris Sportsman Touring 570 EPS with 4x4 drivetrain. When I start my rig up and shift into reverse or drive and start to accelerate there is brief pause in engagement of the tranny and it hits quite hard once it engages. Is this normal with the shaft driven atv's? I...
  9. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    ok i've been dealing with this since i've bought the quad, but recently it has been getting worse, it's a 2000 scrambler 500 H.O. 4x4 99% of the time when I first start the quad and turn the AWD on it works perfectly both front wheels lock in and spin. However sometimes when shifting from...
  10. ATV General Discussion
    I'm looking at purchasing a Scrambler 4x4 400 for $1000. It needs a headgasket but that looks to be an easy and cheap job. I was just looking for some honest opinions on them and what to look out for or anything I could do to the quad to prevent problems in the future with it. Also some opinions...
  11. ATV Brakes & Suspension
    I have a 1998 Polaris 425 magnum 4x4 and the brake system had to be redone. My issue is the rear brake line has been discontinued. My question is what is the thread diameter and size that goes into the caliper and also the 4 way split box? I need to try to find a brake line that is universal or...

  13. Polaris Scrambler
    Hello Guys - I friend just gave me a 1996 Scrambler 400 4X4 that won't start. He said it was running a month ago, but died while his son was riding it. When we press the start button, the starter solenoid just makes a single "click" sound. We cleaned (wire brushed) all the battery/selenoid...
  14. ATV Performance Modifications
    As nice as a 2 stroke gasoline trail boss is, It`s not for me, I have been working on diesels for the past 5 years and they have been shown to be superior to gasoline in every way EXCEPT speed. No a 4.7kw diesel will not beat 7000+rpm the Polaris engine puts out, but I would like something with...
  15. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    i'm hoping someone can help me out... My 4x4 doesn't work (02 sportsman 400) but there is full power to both hubs. Armature plates and Hilliard clutches are brand new, filled hubs correctly. They magnatize as they should and have correct hub fluid. On jacks I can stop both tires with my hand...

    1995 Polaris Magnum Vintage Frame up Rebuild

    This was a project I worked on for about 3 months. I bought this ATV for $475. It ran, and that was about it. I took it home and tore it down to the frame and started ordering parts. I repainted everything from frame up, and rebuilt/replaced anything everything that looked like it needed replaced. I
  17. ATV Wheels & Tires
    Hello there! I just purchased my first Scrambler, a 2001 Polaris Scrambler 500cc 4x4 concentric drive. It needed a few things including tires. I got some aftermarket rims and tires and i knew that my scrambler had a 1" difference in tire size so i found a set on craigslist and got them! Turns...
  18. Polaris Sportsman
    I have a 2001 Sportsman 500 HO. I took it off a small jump and it stopped me as soon as I landed. It was stuck until I put it in 4x4 and only the front tires engage now. I took the cover off for the drive belt to see if that was the problem and its completely fine. Its not a beat machine either...

    Wanting to get the hand lever brake to work. The Foot petal works. The Reservoir is full of fluid. When the top is off teh reservoir and I slightly squeeze the hand brake I can see the fluid move. I am not sure what the next step is to fixing it. Any help would be great!
