  1. Polaris Sportsman
    Ive recently started to have major problems with my polaris clutch. As soon as i go from Neutral to any other gear it started to drive when on idle. Looked around and seemed like it was the primary clutch. So I bought a new one and installed it. Gave it a go and still same problem. But now it...

    So my belt exploded the other day after running out of gas and coming to a stop way too fast, I was thinking about taking it to the mechanic again but thought it’s better I start learning to do this stuff myself, so I took the plastics and clutch cover off and discovered that my drive belt now...

    So I left my battery out in the shed over winter and was wondering if I could use a smaller battery? They’re close in size but it’d be a bit loose in the battery box, haven’t put my battery on the trickle charger yet cuz I can’t find it and I’m going on a rip with some buddies soon so I was...

    Hi guys, I recent purchased a 1996 Polaris Xplorer 300 and I’ve run into a issue shifting from reverse to high. I got the engine to run perfectly fine, but once I took it on a test run it would only shift into reverse and low. When I tried shifting into high it acted like it was just in neutral...

    A buddy of mine wanted me to fix up his 02 sportsman 700. I’ve owned and worked on a couple Polaris’s so i thought i’d give this one a try. Been sitting for a couple years. Tore it down to clean gas tank, fuel lines, carb, etc. and in the process shot some starting fluid in the intake to see if...

    I replaced my ignition switch on my 92 trailboss 4x4 350L. It had bad tumblers and the old key was very worn which made the key hard to get to turn. After I replaced the switch, I can’t get the starter button or the lights to work. The atv will start and run with the pull start. Can anyone help...

    I have a 2014 Polaris sportsman 570 touring that I inherited, It has less than 1k miles and I know was very well maintained and garage kept.

    Hey guys. I know y'all didn't believe me, and that's okay, but I have news. Our insurance had reimbursed us as somehow we managed to get it insured. I don't know how, but it saved us 15 grand. We recently got a new one after getting into heated discussions with representatives from Polaris. We...

Sent the cylinder off to have it bored and sleeved over to a 560cc since the original rebuild I have torn it apart about 7 times and replaced the head gasket referencing different websites and the owners manual for torque specs.

    I decided to start another project. I have an old Polaris 6x6 that hasn't run in five years or so, due to a knocking in the engine. I pulled it out of "storage" and cleaned it up. I messed around for a while and got it running. The knocking was still there, it is not a super violent knocking...

    Alright, I think I have got it figured out! The 02 sportsman 700 literally overfills every carburetor I’ve put on it... I’m thinking fuel pump is dumping to much fuel.. it is original and has been opened up before because it was clogged.. Can that be my issue.. the bike will start up, not easy...

    I’ve had this 2004 sportsman 700 late model for about a year now and it’s been through multiple carb rebuilds. I’ve got it to where it’s as dialed as it’s ever been but it’s never perfect. Sometimes it idles up at 1400-1500 rpm, sometimes it’s down at 800-900 rpm, and sometimes it’s perfect at...

    No means to bring up an old topic for an old bike but this is very weird. The bike is a 2002 Sportsman 700, I just put two fresh gaskets in my exhaust trying to fix the leak and glowing red hot manifold, it is still doing it. It only glows under load, at idle it is good. Also my manifold did...
