    So yesterday I was out riding my 2008 sportsman 500, it has brand new brake pads and I bled the brakes about two months ago.

    I wondered why there is no breakdown of the auxiliary (rear) master cylinder in the Polaris shop manual for 2000 325 Magnum 4X4. They sell only the entire unit for $140.99! The 2 seals on the piston -- not the outer dirt seals -- have tiny markings. One is "77" and on the opposite side "W WE"...

  16. Sintered brake pads or regular pads

    ATV Brakes & Suspension
    Hello, I have an 05 sportsman 500. I need some front brake pads but I am unsure of the best kind to get. I have read that sintered pads are better but can eat up your rotors. Any advise you can give me is greatly appreciated.

    Just picked up a 2010 Sportman 550. The dash says it has 47 hours. The bike is really clean with one exception. The brakes pads are all but gone and the rotars are scored. How could this happen in less than 50 hours or could the hour meter have been reset?
