  1. 2007 Sportsman 800 overheating

    ATV General Discussion
    Hi all, I appreciate there are some other threads out there on this topic, but looking to maybe get some fresh views. I will admit I am new to Polaris. I have been a Honda guy for years, so trying to learn on the fly about the differences. I recently picked up a 2007 800 EFI with 1500 miles...

  4. 07 Sportsman EFI hot light and fan come on at start

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    So I just bought an ATV and the check engine/hot light come on at start up and the fan kicks on right away. The guy I bought it from says that he has replaced the ECM before and is convinced that if I do it will fix the problem. Any thoughts? Thanks
  5. 2008 Sportsman with "hot handlebars"

    ATV General Discussion
    I am relatively new to ATVs, had this one for a few years but don't get a chance to ride much. Went for a ride in the bush yesterday and after maybe 15 minutes my handle bars got quite warm to the touch (uncomfortably). I see no sign that these are an add on (no wires or switches I can find.)...
  6. Warm ATV looses all power

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    HI, I am new here and a new ATV owner of 2 days. To skip the sob story jump to the 2nd paragraph.... I just purchased a 50 acre farm and frankly have no cash. But I needed a way to get around the place, check on animals and fix fences. Without the capital to buy a truck, I decided an ATV...
  7. 2004 Polaris Sportsman 700, check engine, hot/oil light

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I'm having some issues with my Sportsman 700. The last few days the check engine light comes on, flashes hot in the instrument cluster, even if not ran at all. One day the warning shifted between HOT and OIL. When this happens during driving, it runs fine on idle speed, but when speeding up, it...

    Was out riding the other day and the hot oil light came ON. Checked the oil level which was OK; however, noticed that the fan was not running. Unplugged the fan connector and hot wired the fan and it ran fine. The fan motor was drawing 4.6 amps. Then I short circuited the leads to the...
  9. XP 1000 Exhaust heat poll

    Polaris Sportsman XP 1000
    I've read multiple threads about the Sportsman XP 1000 exhaust getting hot, glowing, melting plastic, etc. However, what we don't have a grip on is what percentage of folks are having issues and to what extent. I'd like to start this poll so that hopefully we get a representative sample over...

  11. Keeping your cool

    Polaris Sportsman 570
    Now I can wear shorts. I have two 570's and both have the same heat issues. OK, Polaris should be taking care of it but until they do here's my fix that worked like a charm. I took a set of cheap Black ABS Flat Plastic mud flaps, not the flexible rubber kind, but the hard type, (most auto parts...

    During a recent ride the machine got too hot and shut down. It restarted after letting it cool down but the fan doesn't come on and it will overheat in 20 minutes at idle. I inspected all the wiring and can't find a problem but did notice when I tapped on the fan motor it did turn on briefly...
