I have a 2003 polaris sportmans 500. The exhaust was leaking around the donut. I replaced the donut and it's still leaking. Can anyone help me.

Is it a sugar donut? Just kidding! Welcome to the board. How did the flang look on the exhaust?

What Bruce said,if the flange is in bad shape then it might not be sealing good.

Did you get it tightened good?If you got it tight and the flange looks ok,then the flange may be warped from the heat.You might need a new one.

If it is not one of the problems all ready mentioned then maybe this will help. Are the springs stretched out? If they are replace them if not grab a crescent wrench and bend the spring tabs back a little bit on each side this should put enough tension on the spring to seal the joint properly. Good Luck!
