  1. My 2000 sportsman awd and speedo don't work

    Polaris Sportsman
    I have seen the videos on YouTube and made they changes they showed. Now, the awd light does come on but the front wheels do not drive. The speedo doesn't work either, I have read that this, the speedo, is the real problem and that I need to get a new speedo to fix the awd problem. Is this true...

    Polaris Sportsman
    Hey, everybody, I figured I'd go ahead and get registered here now that I bought a 2000 Sportsman 335 tonight. It was in good shape (has a cracked headlight housing, but cranks right up and runs good with no smoke), and I'm all ears to hear about how to keep this thing running well. The...

    Hi all, I have done numerous research on this forum but could not find anything with the same issues I have. Everything works on my speedo other than the needle itself and the miles. AWD does work. I was riding the quad and my speedo needle began to jump from 0-10. I put it in reverse and...

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have an 1999 xplorer 400 that has served me well over the years (2nd owner). I recently noticed that my speedo is not working. That by itself is not very important to me but the AWD switch is not working as well.. Is that tied in to the speedometer? If so, I guess I'll have to bite the...
  8. Speedometer cable not working

    Polaris Sportsman
    Hi, On my Sportsman 500 1998, my speedometer does not indicate the speed at all. So last night, I completely disconnected it and using pliers, I was able to turn the cable at one end and saw the cable turn accordingly at the other end.
