    ATV Repair and Maintenance

I was wondering if any other years steering columns would fit my year. Also curious if there’s any...

    Polaris Sportsman
    Hi, I have a problem which I am sure someone here knows how to fix it. On my Sportsman 500 1998, not always but sometime, shifting from reverse to forward (doesn't matter if it's high or low), my front right wheel really pulls toward the right.
