  1. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I purchased a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 500HO carbed and bought it non-running. I got it running and was driving like normal, then began to have sputtering issues. If you gave it gas it would just sit there and hesitate/sputter and would eventually clear up and it would take off. It got to the...

    Please help! My '04 sportsman 500 was hooked up to a battery charger that may have had the clamps reinstalled on the wrong polarity/leads (+ put on the - wire and - put on the + wire). I tried to charge the battery and heard the clicking, then discovered battery was bad anyway. Got a new battery...

    I have a 99 Sportsman 500 it shifts into H, L, N, and D perfect the linkage is fine my problem is i think the clutches. When I shift the bike from neutral to high and take off the rpms get real high around 7-10mph and never seem to drop back down so I can go faster. Would this be something to do...

    I just got a 04 sportsman 500. The wheels have no wiggle to them so I don't think the wheel bearings are bad. Yet when im driving it seems as if the right wheel isn't staying on an axis. Its almost as if the wheel is dancing while driving and i get up to like 8mph and its feels like its bouncing...

    I have a 2005 Polaris Predator 500 and I'm assembling the top-end and just noticed that I'm missing one of the guides that goes on top of the bearing on the camshaft that sits between the camshaft bearing and a camshaft cover. Does anyone know what this part is called or if it can be purchased...
