    This is about a 2018 Sportsman 570, bought brand new with no issues until now. I won't bury the lead here. I plowed the driveway and then ripped around in the snow afterward, everything ran fine. It was packed with snow underneath, and I do not have a heated garage so it did not melt off over...

    Does anyone know if a Polaris sportsman 500 EFI would need at least 12.5 volts to run properly? I have read before that EFI models need at least 12.5v to start, but does it need at least 12.5 volts to run properly? I can get my Atv started with a booster, but then it stalls right after. I also...

    Hello, new to the Forum. I have had a 2010 Sportsman 550 for a couple years now and had my first major problem. seems the screw on the negative on the battery wore loose didn't tighten down real snug when my son and I re installed it this spring.

  12. Polaris ATV How-Tos
    I've posted info in the past about my concerns with the 570 Sportsman and battery being mounted low and too close to the exhaust. The battery has finally been moved up to the front storage compartment for 2021, but with the older ones, one cannot see the fluid level unless the battery is...

    The battery for my 2004 polaris sportsman 500 HO was recently put in backwards and began smoking when the key was turned. I have switched the battery and put wiring back to make sure it is correct. I then turned the key and found that I still have power to the machine and it does crank. The...

    G'day ladies and gentlemen, If you were to hear that a 2003 Polaris Sportsman 700 was killing brand new batteries... What steps would you take to figure out the problem. I have researched enough to come to the conclusion that it may be a Voltage Regulator, but I want to be sure by running it...
