  2. Fuel Injector Problems (Possibly Wiring).

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 450 H.O. It is pretty much brand new with only 40 hours on it. For some reason fuel is not getting into the engine. If I put fuel in the engine it will start for a few seconds and then cut out. I think it has something to do with the wiring connection to the fuel...

    Looking at winches and the Polaris winch is pretty pricey. Are there winches that will work with the prewired Sportsman wiring like the Polaris winch does?

    Hello - I am trying to replace a solenoid in my 2004 Sportsman 500. It has 4 posts like the old one I replaced. I, of course, didn't take a picture of how it was wired before taking it apart. There are 4 posts on the solenoid. I believe I have the two smaller posts on the left (in the pic) wired...

  7. CDI and harness wiring 500 HO Sportsman 2007 Carb

    Polaris Sportsman
    Apparently not even t e Clymer manual has a wiring diagram for the 2007 500 Sportsman HO Carb. You can look at it online and it shows up to 2006 and then again from 2008-2013. Unreal. I'm done asking for wiring diagrams. Nobody seems to have one. When I get mine running I'll hopefully make my...

    Fuse box on my 850 shows a 10 amp unswitched fuse. Where does it lead to? Where is the connector so I can power my GPS unit that will have its own on/off switch? Need live a power source and fuse box seems to indicate it is available up front rather than me running a wire from the battery...

    The Polaris dealer wired my Superwinch Terra 35 winch so that it's always got power. Even with the red switch on the handle bar set to STOP or OFF or whatever it says. Is that bad?
  13. Winch Installation 2013 Sportsman 400

    Polaris Sportsman
    I recently purchased a Polaris 2013 Sportsman 400 HO and purchased a kit of the 2500 LB winch to install. First thing I noticed was that the instructions were for several ATVs 400 HO, 500 HO, 800, 6X6, International. So, this gives one reason to doubt that all you need to know will be...
