    A buddy of mine wanted me to fix up his 02 sportsman 700. I’ve owned and worked on a couple Polaris’s so i thought i’d give this one a try. Been sitting for a couple years. Tore it down to clean gas tank, fuel lines, carb, etc. and in the process shot some starting fluid in the intake to see if...

    Trying to diagnose no charging on 2002 500 H.O. The machine runs great just isn't charging. All the manuals and searches I've done doesn't show how to diagnose this particular stator. They all include a green wire which this one doesn't have. This stator seems kind of rare as when you look up...

    Does anyone know if a Polaris sportsman 500 EFI would need at least 12.5 volts to run properly? I have read before that EFI models need at least 12.5v to start, but does it need at least 12.5 volts to run properly? I can get my Atv started with a booster, but then it stalls right after. I also...

    There are a lot of comments on this issue, but still have not been able to put a finger on the solution. My 2017 Sportsman EFI 570 just recently started having a flickering display: The backlight is steady on at idle. As soon as I touch the throttle, even slightly, the backlight goes off, and...

    07 sportsman efi ho. I just got this bike and have been doing the maintenance and checking stuff. When testing the stator I discovered it’s shorted to ground. When I place one end of the meter on the positive of the battery and one to the body of the bike and rev it, I see the voltage rise up...

    I have an oil leak (light mist) from where my stator wires enter the engine. I replaced the stator about 2 years ago and don’t remember much about the internal area of it. Any suggestion on stopping the leak and is this something common?

    I have a '96 Trailblazer 250 that I'm in the process of completely rebuilding. I got it trashed, and with many parts already off of it. The issue I'm having is, aside from installing the new stator using the marks on the old stator from the bolts for position, how do I know if the stator is...

    2011 sportsman 90. was running real rough and would stall often for a long time. Now it doesnt run at all. Hooked jumper cables to the battery and it runs perfect. Unhook the cables and it dies immedietly. Thinking stator maybe? Anybody have the repair manual with specs for stator?

    How hard is it to replace a stator backer plate on a 2002 sportsman 700? Will I need new seals? I just need the bendix bushing but I’d it better to replace the backer plate?

    I got a new flywheel for my 02 sportsman 700 because my magnets came out. The new flywheel is one from the ac to dc upgrade kit. The flywheel I got hit the stator bolts. Can I get a new stator for that flywheel and splice the wires? Or where can I find the new clip in magnets? thanks in advance

    I just bought a 2017 Sportsman 450 HO from a private party - only 40 engine hours on it, but its out of warranty. The battery was dead after we took it out riding for a few hours and I had to charge it. I took the battery to NAPA and they said its fine. I read a forum on here from 2013 on how...
  14. Polaris Sportsman 570
    Ok so here's my story. I was riding with some friends and the machine died out of nowhere. It would turn over but not start. I towed it home and began to try and troubleshoot the problem. At first I thought it might just be a fouled plug or something simple. I replaced the spark plug and...

    Hi Polaris Enthusiasts, My daughter has a 2012 Outlaw 50 that for some unknown reason developed an issue where the headlights and taillight don't come on when the engine starts up like they used to do. The horn and brake light still work. I suspect this is the case because the horn and brake...

    Ok, been having overcharge issue for a couple weeks now. I bought new ecm thinking it was voltage regulator as battery was metering at 16-18 volts at 3000-4000 rpm. After new ecm (regulator is built in on this model year), same overcharge issue. I tested stator legs and they are ALL showing a...
