    ATV General Discussion
    Hi all! Im new here. Im looking for a used part vender / atv dismantler for my 94 big boss 400L 6x6. As you may already know, many parts are no longer available for such an old ride.

  3. 2014 big boss 800 Speedometer

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 2014 big boss and the gauge cluster is shot. Polaris seems to change a part number every couple of years just to keep things interesting I guess. I would like to know if a cluster from a 2012 will work. The plug ins are the same and all the numbers match on the screen. I figure...

  7. Restoring a 1992 Big Boss need info

    ATV Brakes & Suspension
    Trying to figure out if there are rear struts (not the shock in the middle) that will swap into the 92 model. OEM struts are long gone and the specific ones to this model only cross to the other early Boss's so I'd like to find some measurements from modern struts to see if any could be made to fit.
