    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...

    I've got a 95 polaris explorer 300 4x4 and its gives off an annoying tick when I let off the throttle but nothing at idle. Or while throttling up in N just after letting off the throttle. Also a very bad engine vibration at idle. And something very odd I noticed, while the engine was warm i...

    I bought a '06 outlaw 500 yesterday and it ran fine and started multiple times no problem. Started fine when I pulled it off the trailer and I rode it around for 5 min and started sputtering so I turn it off to check if the fuel was on. Fuel was indeed on but now it won't start. It has spark and...

    The brakes have been out for a bit on this bike (2002 Sportsman 700) and I just got the last line I need. The foot brake line was cut so I got a new one and I cannot seem to find where it hooks up to. I think it might be on the rear caliper but I can’t find where at, a video or diagram would be...
