    Was out this weekend and blew a tire, when it went I slammed a stump on my 96 trail boss 250. Noticed the steering frog on the stem is torqued so my tires face outward and my bars face the right. I was wondering if any other years steering columns would fit my year. Also curious if there’s any...

  9. 1990 Trail Boss 250 Idle

    Polaris Trail Boss
    My 250 2x4 runs great, but will not idle. In the past, once I drove it for a while it would seem to idle. But now, I can ride for 3 hours and when I stop it will shut off. It doesn't even need gas to stay running, as long as I just barely touch the throttle, it will stay running. I am...

  13. Converting a 89` Trail Boss 250 4X4 to a 4.7kw Yanmar DIESEL

    ATV Performance Modifications
    As nice as a 2 stroke gasoline trail boss is, It`s not for me, I have been working on diesels for the past 5 years and they have been shown to be superior to gasoline in every way EXCEPT speed. No a 4.7kw diesel will not beat 7000+rpm the Polaris engine puts out, but I would like something with...
