  1. 08 Sportsman 300 AWD won't engage

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I just purchased a 2008 Sportsman 300. After burying myself in a mudhole, I realized the AWD wasn't engaging. It doesn't want to go at all, I am familiar with the fact that the rear wheels must spin before it will engage. My battery tests out OK and my wiring down into the front...

  5. 98 Magnum 4X4 AWD problems

    Polaris Magnum

You can get it to stay on but if you jar it the smallest bit it cuts off. I checked to see if I could correct it with the shifter linkage but no go. There is a smal amount...

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    96 Magnum 425 Chain drive. AWD used to work. Plow snow with it. This past winter, the front right tire stopped working in AWD. The left front tire continues to work. Any ideas? I thought I may have stripped the gears so I pulled the front right apart and it all looks good.
