    I have this 2009 Polaris 850 which I had just purchased used, and the idle RPM is 1200. When I put it into gear nothing happens until I give it a little gas and bring the RPM to approximately 1600 - 1700 RPM; at this RPM it feels as if kicks into gear and kind of jumps and gets going very...

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Hey guys I am loving my Polaris but I am having a small problem with it. The battery light will flash quite often, sometimes the speedo needle too, and the rpm on the display always reads zero.

    Polaris Sportsman
    So when I go to start it, it will start up after letting it sit on the battery charger but I have to have the gas down in order to keep it running. I've messed with the idle control both left and right and neither way seems to hold it at the right rpm's to keep it from dying on me. Also it's...

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I purchased this roll over and I'm trying to get it back to riding condition. We are almost there. I had to purchase a new cluster for it and I'm not seeing the RPMs on the display. The gears and four wheel drive indicators work fine. Basically everything concerning the yellow info button on the...

    Polaris Sportsman
    I have an 05 sportsman 500 that I had the unfortunate problem of falling into a deep hole in a creek. Needless to say it was submerged for about a half hour. After we got it back on the bank I pulled the plug and turned it over to get any water out of the cyclinder. I have drained the water...
