    I just purchased a sportsman 335 4x4, I knew it was a project when I bought it but was not aware of just how big of a project.

    I just got a 04 sportsman 500. The wheels have no wiggle to them so I don't think the wheel bearings are bad. Yet when im driving it seems as if the right wheel isn't staying on an axis.

    I've ordered 4 front axles and they're all too short somehow. When I tighten the axle nut with impact it pulls the axle out of the differential on the other end of the axle, about 1.5 inches. The c clip groove is clean and I used antiseize. Why is this happening. Is something bent or broken...

    Hi all, just want to confirm that this is probably a bad connection near the relay and is not the relay. I have been surfing this issue and it appears that it is not a new one. My wife’s beast: 2008 500 HO Sportsman Problem: turn the key to start, clicks 3 times, display shuts off. Wait 10...

    I just ordered a 2021 Sportsman 570 Premium in titanium on April 27. Wondering if anyone out there has ordered one recently and what their wait time was or what they were told it would be for a that model or one similar. Also I am located in Northeastern PA, Thanks!

    I have a 2004.5 Polaris sportsman 700 that currently has a 2” bracket lift on it. I’m taking it off due to the issues it’s causing with suspension geometry, front axle binding, etc. it’s an old quad and has a sag in the front lifted or not. I’ve heard about these hd (I assume heavy duty) springs...

Part numbers are different but from what I'm hearing the only difference is a...
