    Does anyone know the size of the nut on the bottom of the ball joint? Like thread size so I can find one at Lowe’s? Mine is stripped and I have a new strut on the way but the nut is missing.
  4. Sportsman 700 ball joint issue

    ATV General Discussion
    My 2002 sportsman 700 has new ball joints and I did a 2 inch lift to stop my outlaw 1 27s from rubbing. It put the ball joins at such an angle the plate that holds them in came loose. The threads won’t go in and I don't know how to fix it. The back had a nice angle too but I lower it down with...
  5. Polaris Sportsman Tachometer

    ATV General Discussion
    My 2002 sportsman 700 tachometer all of a sudden says zero. I believe it could be due to no flywheel magnets because they fell out (I have an RMStator) can someone confirm this? And where would be a good place to find a flywheel online?

    Within the last month my bike has died at idle. It doesn't matter if its as soon as I start the bike or after I've been riding it for an hour. It takes off as it should and seems to ride fine under throttle at all positions except idle. It also makes a "puff" sound before dying almost like a...
