  1. ATV Wheels & Tires
    Hello, all! New to the forum here and this is my first post. I know this question has been asked a thousand times but I am in the market for some new wheels and tires for my XP 1000 Hunter Edition. The wheels I believe I have decided on are the MSA M21 LOK 14x7s. As far as tires go, I have...

    I live in Ontario Canada. I've been using my 570 sportsman a little this winter. I recently drove up the street. Bike quit and wouldn't start. Took to the dealer and they say there is condensation in my oil which caused bike lockup. Anyone ever have issues with this? And what are the odds...

    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...

    I have a 2016 Polaris Sportsman 1000 XP and the Steering is Extremely Sensitive when turning. It feels like your driving a boat on water. I have lifted the atv and bearings and joints are tight. One observation i noticed was how EASY it was to turn the tires left to right with the engine off...

    Bought my Uncles old 2003 sportsman 700 twin (passed away in 2008, quad has sat from 2010 to 2020). I went with the RM stator kit to bypass the failed ducati ignition. But now i'm getting an issue with overcharging. When revving the bike and riding after about mid RPM the dash starts to flash...

    The ATV starts up and idles fine for as long as you’d like it to. If you very carefully and quickly feather the throttle ever so slightly you can build RPM up around 13-1400. But if you try to easy the throttle in it will shut off. Pulled the plugs out and unplugged the fuel pump and cranked the...

    Hey all, new to this forum and figured I’d start a build thread for my 2002 Polaris Sportsman 400 as it’s going to be very very thorough. The theme for the build is Military/Tactical/Hunting/Camping I’m going to be going through every system on the quad. Full electrical revamp and...

    Hello, I have a 2014 Sportsman 570 EFI with 505 miles. It has been running great other than I could tell the battery was acting up a bit when I would start it. It would start to turn over, and then pause. Then it would start and ran great after starting. Yesterday, I went to start it and it...
  15. ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Just wondering if anyone has tried using a different model of sending unit on their 800's. Mine is shot and local Polaris wants $900 for a fuel tank. Cant find a used fuel pump assembly and was thinking of trying a different float assembly. I can get a 400 fuel send unit for a lot cheaper and...
  16. ATV Wheels & Tires
    My question is will a rear 25x10-12 tire fit on a rim that currently holds a 25x11-12 tire? I want to get a second set of tires (already have an extra set of stock rims with old crappy tires) for a 2003 500H.O. I have inherited. Looking to put some turf friendlier tires on for working around...

    Hi folks, Just a question to find out if any of you folks had a similar issue to one I experienced. I was driving my 2013 Sportsman on a dirt road / ATV trail (approximately 25 mph / 40kmh) and had to quickly slow down (had a black bear walk out in front of me and I didn't want to hit it)...

    So I’ve been having this issue where on deceleration my belt will start to flop around and hit the top of the clutch cover. It is most noticeable right before the clutch releases and the ATV freewheels. I purchased the quad in 2015 and about mid 2016 is when I noticed it doing this. It’s done it...
